The Executive Board described in our Bylaws consists of four elected positions (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer), plus the Workshop Coordinator, the Webmaster, and two standing committees, Membership and Presentation Committees.  Other ad hoc member advisors may be recognized as the situation at the time may dictate.  

Only the Executive Board has voting powers.  All members have a voice.  The Executive Board members are officers of the Corporation.
