By Laws

Officers

There shall be three (3) elected officers - an Executive Director, an Associate Director for Administration, and an Associate Director for Activities. Each of the officers shall serve a three (3) year term, with the terms staggered so that one new officer is selected each year. There is no limit to how many terms an individual may serve.

The Board of Directors shall nominate one or more persons for each office as necessary and present the name(s) for approval by the membership at the annual business meeting, by mail ballot, or electronic voting via the FSU BAA Web Site, in conjunction with the Fall Newsletter and homecoming registration information. The nominees who receive the most votes shall be elected. In the event there is only one person running for an office, a simple majority of the voting membership shall be sufficient to elect the nominee.

In extraordinary circumstances, the board may approve an alternative procedure for election of officers.

Board of Directors

There shall be a Board of Directors consisting of sixteen (16) voting members to oversee the affairs of the organization. Each director shall serve a four (4) year term of office. Four (4) board members shall be elected each year. There is no limit to how many terms an individual may serve.

Nominations must be received prior to the date set by the board. The board shall review the nominees at a meeting prior to homecoming and shall publish their recommendations along with all other nominees in the Fall Newsletter. All members shall have an opportunity to vote for nominees to fill vacancies on the board by completing and returning the homecoming registration and ballot form by a specified date. Each member shall vote for as many nominees as there are vacancies on the board, and nominees with the most votes shall be elected. In the event the number of nominees equals the number of open positions on the board, a simple majority of the voting membership shall be sufficient to elect the nominees.

In extraordinary circumstances, the board may approve an alternative procedure for election of board members.
