The SHNA Executive Committee and Officers
The property and business of SHNA is managed by the Executive Committee (EC), consisting of nine regular members elected by the general membership, plus any ex officio officers. The EC meets before each general membership meeting to establish an agenda and designate a slate of nominees for all open positions on the Executive Committee, and meets quarterly to conduct the business of the association. The EC executes the plans and policies adopted by SHNA and recommends plans and policies.
The officers of SHNA are the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. They are elected by the Executive Committee at a special meeting held immediately after the annual membership meeting. Officers serve for three years, or until the election of their successors. The officers are:
- President: The President has the usual power and authority vested in the office of the President of an unincorporated association, and executes the plans and policies of SHNA; he or she also performs such other duties as the Executive Committee may prescribe.
- Vice President: The Vice President, in the absence or disability of the President, performs the duties and exercise the powers of the President and performs such other duties as the Executive Committee may direct.
- Secretary: The Secretary attends all sessions of the Executive Committee and all meetings of SHNA and records all votes and the minutes of the proceedings. He/she or the President gives notice of all meetings of the members and of the Executive Committee, and performs other duties prescribed by the Executive Committee or by the President.
- Treasurer: The Treasurer has general custody of the funds of SHNA, keeps full and accurate books belonging to SHNA, and deposits all moneys in the name and to the credit of SHNA in such manner and in such depositories as designated by the Executive Committee. He or she causes the funds of SHNA to be distributed as designated by the Executive Committee, and see that proper vouchers cover all disbursements. He or she renders to the Executive Committee at its meetings, or whenever the Executive Committee may require, a proper account and statement showing the financial condition of SHNA. *
