- the Vice President, also elected annually through an internal election and shall carry out the duties of the President during his/her absence;
- the Treasurer, who is elected internally amongst the board, and is responsible for rendering financial statements to the directors, members and others when required. In compliance with the Society Act;
- the Secretary, who is elected annually in an internal election amongst Board members, shall be responsible for the safe keeping of the correspondence, minutes, records and documents of the society.
Each committee is supposed to have a member of the Board, with few exceptions (e.g. the Awards committee). The Board is supposed to meet regularly throughout the fiscal membership year with a summer break. These meeting dates are determined by mutual agreement amongst the Board Members. Board member terms of office are three years. Each Board member/Committee chair is required to submit an annual report for the Annual General Meeting.
