Officers and Student Representative~
The elected Western Division Officers are President, President-Elect, Vice President, Secretary-Treasurer, and immediate Past President. The Student Representative is an elected agent to the Executive Committee. The offices of Past President, President, and President-Elect are automatically filled by the current President, President-Elect and Vice President, respectively. The office of Vice President and the Student Representative position are filled by election each year. The office of Secretary-Treasurer is filled by election on an alternate-year basis because this position has a two-year term of office. Candidates for Vice President and Secretary-Treasurer are chosen through the Nominating Committee. Candidates for the Student Representative are nominated by the Student Committee. The terms of office for the Division Officers, Student Representative, and Committee Chairs coincide with those of the Society; these terms generally start and end with the date of the business meeting of the Society, which is typically in late August or early September each year.
