Published by

5 Officers


5.1 Number and Title of Officers.


The Officers of the corporation shall be a Chief Executive Officer who shall be designated the President of the Board, a Vice President of the Board, a Secretary of the Board, and a Chief Financial Officer who shall be designated Treasurer of the Board. The Secretary shall be empowered to appoint and dismiss Directors persons to the position of Assistant Secretary and the Treasurer shall be empowered to appoint and dismiss Directors persons to the position of Assistant Treasurer, but such appointment shall not constitute elevation to the status of Officer or Director for the purpose of these Bylaws, or for the Articles of Incorporation, or for provisions of law, except when such Assistants are acting as their appointing Officer’s proxy. No individual may hold more than one position as an Officer of the corporation, except that the positions of Secretary and Treasurer may be held by the same person, and persons may be Assistant Secretary and/or Assistant Treasurer while holding any other Offices except President or Vice President.


5.2 Qualifications for Officers.


All Officers must be Directors and must meet the qualifications for Directors set forth in Section 3.2. Assistant Secretaries or Treasurers need not be Directors.


5.3 Term of Office.


Each Officer, Assistant Secretary, or Assistant Treasurer shall hold office until the expiration of his or her term of office, or until his/her successor takes office, except as otherwise provided in these Bylaws. All terms shall expire on 1 January of each year.


[Through 1994, officers’ terms were for the length of their term as a director, which was three years. As part of the staggered-terms scheme adopted as part of Resolution 1994-6 on October 29, 1994, officers’ terms were shortened to one year and elections for officers must be held each year between the final regular meeting and the end of the year.]


[Sections 5.1-5.3 revised by Resolution 2009-03, 3-28-2009, allowing non-directors to be Assistant Officers and establishing the term of Assistant Officers.]


5.4 Election of Officers.


During or after a meeting at which regular elections for the Board of Directors are held, but before the first day of the following year, the President of the Board must designate a time and place within the San Francisco Bay Area as defined in Section 3.5 for reelected Directors and Directors-Elect to elect, from among the reelected Directors and Directors-Elect, Officers to take office on the first day of the following year. Each of the offices of President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer shall be voted upon individually by written preferential ballot, with each reelected Director and Director-Elect casting no more than one vote. For the election of Officers to take place, a number of reelected Directors and Directors-Elect equal to a quorum as defined in these Bylaws must be present. If there is only one candidate for an office, a written preferential ballot is not necessary, and the Board may elect the candidate to the position by unanimous consent. If there is only one nominee for each office, the Board may elect the entire slate of candidates simultaneously by unanimous consent.


5.5 Removal and Resignation.


Any Officer may be removed, either with or without cause, by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the Board of Directors, at any time. Any Officer may resign at any time by giving written notice to the Board of Directors. Any such resignation shall take effect at the date of receipt of such notice or at any later date specified therein, and, unless otherwise specified therein, the acceptance of such resignation shall not be necessary to make it effective. The above provisions of this Section shall be superseded by any conflicting terms of a contract which has been approved or ratified by the Board of Directors relating to the employment of any Officer of the corporation.


[Vote needed to remove officer changed from 8 votes to a 2/3 vote by Resolution 1991-28, 10-5-91.]


5.6 Vacancy in the Office of President.


Any vacancy caused by the death, resignation, removal, disqualification, or otherwise, of the President shall be filled by election, by written preferential ballot, by the Board of Directors at the next regular meeting of the Board. Until such a meeting, the Vice President shall become Acting President, with all the powers and responsibilities of the President. The Acting President shall name an Acting Vice President from the remaining Directors. The Acting Vice President shall have all the powers and responsibilities of the Vice President, including succession to the Acting Presidency in the event of the death, resignation, removal, disqualification of the Acting President. If, at the next regular meeting, the Acting President is not elected President, he or she shall return to the position he or she held before the vacancy in the Presidency came into existence. Any remaining vacancies among the Officers shall be filled by election by preferential ballot at that meeting. If there is only one candidate for an office, a written preferential ballot is not necessary, and the Board may elect the candidate to the position by unanimous consent.


5.7 Vacancy in the Office of Vice President.


Any vacancy caused by the death, resignation, removal, disqualification, or otherwise, of the Vice President shall be filled by election, by written preferential ballot, by the Board of Directors at the next regular meeting of the Board.
