The Officers and Board of Directors run the day-to-day business of the club, and are open to suggestions from the membership.
We elect a new Board and a set of Officers every year in November, and they take office in January. The selection process begins with formation of a Nominating Committee in September. This committee works up a slate of candidates to be presented in October, and the Membership may nominate folks at October's meeting. The nominees are then placed on a ballot to be voted in November's meeting.
We need to fill the seats of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer, plus seven seats on the Board of Directors.
The newly-elected Board takes office in January of the following year for a one-year term.

When we Incorporated under Arizona Law, the "Board of Directors" was inclusive of the officers. In along about 2009, our Board went from having 5 Directors to having 7.
When we became a 501(c)3 nonprofit, Federal Law defines the Board of Directors as being the seven Directors, who represent the "Shareholders" while the Officers represent the "Management." European Boards of Directors represent the "Employees" instead. We have neither shareholders or employees, so our Board represents the membership.
My thanks to Steve Bowen, N7CPU for enlightening me with that piece of knowledge. Accordingly, I have reorganized the headings on this list.
