Article Index





The officers of the Federation shall be a president, vice-president North America, vice-president Europe, vice-president Austral/Asia/Africa, chief executive and treasurer and any such other officers as the Board of Directors may by by-law determine. Any two offices may be held by the same person. Officers need not be directors or members.



(a) Officers shall be elected at a meeting of members. To be elected, an officer must either be present at the meeting at which he/she is elected, or consent in writing to be elected in advance of that meeting. If an officer ceases to be an officer, that person automatically ceases to be a director.
(b) There shall be no fewer than four and no more than six officers.
(c) Officers shall serve without remuneration with the exception of the chief executive. Officers may be reimbursed for reasonable expenses incurred in the performance of their duties. Directors and officers shall not be prohibited from receiving compensation for services provided to the Corporation in another capacity.
(d) A representative of a nominating committee may present a slate of proposed officers to the annual meeting of members. If there are no other nominations, the meeting may choose to acclaim the slate.
(e) Members present at the annual meeting of members may nominate proposed officers from the floor of the meeting. Any person so nominated must, either in person or in writing, confirm their willingness to stand for election.
(f) If more than one candidate is running for a position as an officer, the Chair of the annual meeting of members shall take all measures necessary to ensure that a secret-ballot vote takes place and that the results are announced immediately. The winner of the secret ballot shall immediately become an officer. For greater certainty, a proxy form may authorize the proxy holder to exercise their own choice in voting in the event that more than one candidate is running for a position.
(g) The members entitled to vote may, by resolution passed by at least two-thirds (2/3) of the votes cast at a special meeting of members held for that purpose, remove any officer before the expiry of his/her term of office. The members may then immediately elect a qualified successor to fill the vacancy for the duration of the term in question.
(h) If any officer misses two consecutive meetings of the officers or members meetings without a reason acceptable to the Board, the Board may act as follows:

  • (A) If the officer is the President or a vice president, the Board may recommend to the next meeting of members that the President or vice president be removed as an Officer. If the members vote to remove the individual, the members shall immediately elect a successor.
  • (B) If the officer is not the President or a vice president, the Board may vote to remove him/her as an Officer. The Board may then appoint a qualified individual to fill the remainder of the officer`s term.



The President shall serve for a term of two years, or until replaced. The president may stay president for as long as it is required.

In the absence or disability of the president, one of the vice-presidents appointed by a majority of the vice-presidents shall perform the duties and exercise the powers of the president and shall perform such other duties as shall from time to time be imposed upon him or her by the Board of Directors.

Vice President – The vice president shall in the absence or inability to serve of the President, perform the duties and exercise the powers of the President, and shall perform such other duties as may from time to time be directed by the board. The vice president who will be designated to perform the duties of the President when required will be appointed by the remaining Vice Presidents. The vice president shall serve for a term of two years, or until replaced. The vice president may stay president for as long as it is required.
