On Thursday, January 28th, at a special session of the Chapter Executive Board, the board members deliberated on the question of the Chapter Presidency transition.  The board members considered whether to appoint a member of the chapter to fill out the unexpired chapter president’s term or whether the board should authorize a special election to fill the vacancy; the board decision was to hold a special election to fill out the remainder of the unexpired term which runs until May 31, 2017.

The schedule of deadlines for the special election for Chapter President and Delegate to fill the unexpired term through May 31, 2017 are as follows:
