The government of the Society and the preservation, care and management of its property is vested in the Board of Directors, which consists of members of the Society elected from the membership at large. Directors are elected at the Society’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).

At least one month prior to the Annual General Meeting, the Board of Directors appoints a Nominating Committee composed of the Immediate Past President or, as necessary, a prior Past President or prior Director, and two current Members at large. This committee is responsible for nominating candidates for the Board of Directors to be elected at the annual meeting, with provision for nominations from the floor to be maintained, and must report its recommendations to the President of the Society not less than five (5) days prior to the Annual General Meeting.

Directors serve two (2) year terms renewable, by election, for two (2) additional consecutive terms. Following three (3) consecutive terms, such a director is ineligible for one (1) year to sit as a Director. If a Director is unable or unwilling to complete a term, the Board may appoint a replacement to serve the remainder of that term.
