In accordance with the by-laws for Chapter 522, we have five elected officer positions that are staffed from members who are deemed to be in good standing and who are listed on our most current membership role. The titles for the five officer positions are president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and chaplain. Officers are elected with the expectation that they will each serve a 2-year term. Elections are scheduled bi-annually and normally occur in the second quarter of a calendar year. Our next planned elections will take place during the second quarter of 2016. The names of our current officers can be found under “Officers and Directors” on the navigation bar.
Chapter 522 has three director positions, each serving 2-year terms on the same election cycle as the elected officers. The directors and officers together comprise the board of directors for the chapter. Board meetings are normally held once each quarter. The board often reviews significant issues and policies before presenting the information to the general membership for a vote. The names of our current directors can be found under “Officers and Directors” on the navigation bar.
Our organization also has a number of delegates, representatives, committees, and special appointments. Nominations and selection of members to fill each position are typically done as needed. Officers, directors, and members in good standing are eligible to fill these positions. The specific terms and responsibilities associated which these positions are determined when the positions are created. The names of the current delegates and representatives for Chapter 522 are provided on a separate page under the “Administration” heading on the navigation bar.
Chapter 522 has several active committees and special appointments. The names of the current committee chairs and special appointments are provided on a separate page under the “Administration” heading on the navigation bar.
In accordance with guidelines received from the Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc. (our national organization) and the Florida State Council (our state organization), Chapter 522 adheres to their guidelines regarding disclosures.
