1210 Annual Organizational Meeting

At the first regular meeting at which newly-elected Board members are seated in election years and at the first regular meeting in December in non-election years, the Board will elect from among its members a president/chair and a vice president to serve one-year terms.
A newly appointed Board member will not be eligible to serve as an officer unless a majority of the Board has been appointed.
If a Board member is unable to continue to serve as an officer, a replacement will be elected immediately. In the absence of both the president/chair and the vice president, the Board will elect a president pro tempore who will perform the functions of the president/chair during the latter's absence.
The superintendent will act as Board secretary and perform all the duties as outlined by law. In order to provide a record of the proceedings of each meeting of the Board, the superintendent will appoint a recording secretary of the Board.
The WSSDA legislative representative will be elected from among the Board members at the first regular meeting at which newly-elected Board members are seated during election years and will serve a two-year term.
The normal order of business will be modified for the annual organizational meeting by considering the following matters after the approval of the minutes of the previous meeting:
A. Welcome and introduction of newly elected Board members by the president/chair;
B. Call for nominations for president/chair to serve during the ensuing year;
C. Election of a president/chair by roll call vote;
D. Assumption of office by the new president/chair;
E. Call for nominations for vice president to serve during the ensuing year;
F. Election of a vice president by roll call vote;
G. Call for nominations for WSSDA legislative representative to serve for the next two years; and
H. Election of a WSSDA legislative representative.
Policies will continue from year to year and Board to Board until and unless the Board changes them.
