Tenure, Vacancies

  1. The members of the Association or Division may, by resolution passed by at least two-thirds of the votes cast at an annual general meeting of which notice specifying the intention to pass such resolution has been given, remove any councilor before the expiration of their term of office, and may by a majority of the votes cast at that meeting elect any personal member in good standing in stead for the remainder of the term.

    No person may hold the same office for more than two consecutive terms.

    Vacancies on any Divisional Council however caused may, so long as a quorum of councillors remain in office, be filled by the Council by resolution from among the qualified personal members of the Association, if it shall see fit to do so. If there is not a quorum of Divisional Councillors, the Board of Directors of the Association shall appoint personal members to fill the vacancies.
