VICE PRESIDENT – The Vice President shall perform any and all duties of the President in the President’s absence or disability, in which case all the duties and power of the President shall be vested in the Vice President. If the Office of President should become vacant, for any reason, the Vice President shall serve as President until the Office of President is filled by election.

ELECTION OF OFFICERS 

 

At the regular meeting in September of each even-numbered year the President shall appoint a special committee consisting of three (3) members, each of whom shall represent a different member association, which shall select nominees for election to the officers of OCCO. At the regular meeting in November of each even-numbered year an election of officers shall be conducted. Voting for officers shall be by secret ballot with each member association casting one (1) vote for each office. The ballots shall be tabulated by the committee appointed for the purpose of selecting nominees for office. For election, an individual must receive an affirmative vote from a majority of the member associations.

 

VACANCY OF OFFICE     

 

When a duly elected officer cannot serve, or complete, a term of office for any reason, a special election may be held to fill the vacancy. A three (3) person nominating committee may be appointed immediately following the occurrence of the vacancy and the election may be conducted at the next regular meeting. The President shall appoint an acting-officer to perform the duties of the vacant office until a successor is duly elected.
