Currently the timeline for elections is in our bylaws:
The vice president and chief financial officer and vice president of communications and secretary take office the August 1 following elections. The president-elect takes over the office of president on February 1 of the year following elections.
We were discussiing whether or not to change the bylaws (not for this year) but possibly for next to hold elections in the fall. The issue is whether July/August that's a problem for vacations & dead periods ... and if we should consider in the future going over to something more tike September. Board discussed this briefly and we were wondering what people think about the merits.
Comments, and discussions, are invited.
