Board of Directors

The Board shall manage the Association’s affairs in its sole and absolute discretion. Without limiting the foregoing, the Board: (i) may invite Members and other individuals to participate in its discussions in an advisory capacity (but not vote) at any meeting; (ii) shall receive and approve the reports of all Divisions, Committees, and Taskforces (defined below) as requested by the Board; and (iii) will, prior to presentation at the business meeting, review and approve the report of the activities of the Divisions and Committees, as deemed necessary by the Board.

The Board shall consist of twelve (12) individuals, and will include: (i) the Association’s officers: President, President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer,  and Immediate Past-President (“Officer-Directors”); and (ii) seven (7) directors-at-large (“At-Large Directors”), comprising the six (6) Division Chairs (defined below), at least one (1) Senior member. The Officer-Directors and At-Large Directors shall be collectively referred to herein as “Directors.”  The number of Directors may be decreased to no fewer than three (3) or increased to any number from time to time by amendment of this section.  No decrease shall have the effect of shortening the term of an incumbent Director.

In order to enhance the Board’s ability to manage the Association’s affairs, the Association’s operational activities that are not conducted by the standing committees shall be divided among divisions (“Divisions”).  The Divisions are chaired by a Director-at-Large and shall include:

(A)       Division of Education;
(B)       Division of Member Services;
(C)       Division of Patient Care and Resources;
(D)       Division of Professional Development;
(E)       Division of Publications; and
(F)       Division of Research. 

Committee Chairs included in the Board list are individuals chairing the various committees within the six divisions of EAST.  Committee Chairs do not serve on the board nor do they vote.
