All directors must be voting members of the corporation. Each director shall serve from the time of their election at the annual meeting until the following annual meeting (1 year). ‍No member may serve more than 3 consecutive terms‍ on the board of directors. No director may be compensated for their service as a board member, though the corporation may provide insurance and indemnity for board members as allowed by law.

      • The board of directors shall consist of the four elected Officers as defined in Article IV, two elected at-large directors, and board-appointed program directors, all of whom are considered directors for the purposes of this article.
