In 2006, the membership adopted the following governance structure:
A member may propose a Bylaws Change to a Board member for consideration of the Board or may submit proposed amendments for vote of the membership by obtaining the signatures of members representing at least five percent of all voting members.
The Board consists of up to 15 Directors consisting of no more than eleven (11) directors elected to serve four-year terms by the membership at-large and up to four directors who are appointed by the Board to four-year terms. Directors may serve a maximum of two consecutive four-year terms.
Elections are held biennially in odd-numbered years.
The Nominating Committee is a statutory committee of the board. The Nominating Committee seeks, recruits and maintains a pool of qualified candidates for service on the Board and as members of Board Committees. Any AOG member may have his/her name placed on the election ballot, without review by the Nominating Committee, by petition of 25 other AOG members.
AOG members interested in serving on the Board or a Board Committee should review the requirements of directors, the nominating procedures and, if further information is required, should contact the chair of the nominating committee or the AOG.
In November of even-numbered years, the Nominating Committee must submit to the Board a slate containing at least two candidates for each vacancy to be filled.Class Advisory Senate:
The Bylaws establish a Class Advisory Senate to provide advice and opinion to the Board of Directors. The Senate consists of a representative from each class selected by the class. The Senate will meet at least once annually.
The Board holds quarterly meetings in February, May, August, and November. Meetings are open to all members. The Board posts minutes of the meetings on the website as well as the agenda for the next meeting: typically two weeks prior to the Board date.
