 ~ Policies & Procedures ~
 
POLICY  #1:
BOARD  OF  DIRECTORS
 
Membership:  Effort will be made to maintain 11 Board members, although this number may be increased or decreased by vote of the Board. All members of NOAPS are eligible for appointment. Interested members may contact any of the Board members to volunteer. Appointment to the Board will be decided by majority vote of the existing board members.

Meetings:  At least one board meeting will be held annually with members gathered in a physical location. If possible, a second annual meeting will be held, based upon financial and other considerations. Other meetings will be held via electronic media connections.

Meeting Expenses:    After consideration of NOAPS' annual budget, Board members will be compensated as feasible to cover their travel expenses to the annual board meeting. The travel expense budget will be decided three months prior to the annual board meeting based upon NOAPS financial status. The financial stability of NOAPS will take priority when considering the actual annual amount designated for the travel expenses of the Board Members.

Voting Process:    Voting will be open, except for election of officers and Board members. The President will not vote except to break a tie. Voting will require a quorum, defined as greater than 50% of the Board members. The quorum of the assembly should prevail for all voting matters. Written proxy voting will not be allowed since it does not allow for healthy discussion and deliberation in assembly.
 
Meeting Format:  Robert’s Rules will be followed for voting and other meeting processes.

Term: Board members are appointed by the Board for a three year term. Reappointment to the Board will be unlimited.

                                        Date:  approved by Board of Directors: September 3rd, 2016.
