Association President

Leading by example the President is the presiding officer over the Board of Directors and helps the Board to make effective decisions for managing and operating the Association by fulfilling the following duties: opens the meetings, determined whether there is a quorum, establishes the schedule of the meeting, and coordinates the subject matter of the agenda. During Board meetings the President will keep business and discussions on track and will generally keep the meetings from becoming too long.  The President can accomplish this by having most of the business that is brought to the floor in the form of a motion, as this will then focus the discussion.

The president is one of the key officers that the face of the organisation and undertakes business meetings to represent the board and association to the public and in business dealings in coordination with the CEO or Executive Director.
