According to the bylaws:
All officers shall be elected by a majority vote of those present at an annual membership meeting once a quorum has been established, and shall serve without compensation.
In the event of vacancies on the Executive Board, the President shall appoint, with Executive Board approval, interim replacement Executive Board Members until official elections can be held.
At the first official meeting of the newly elected Executive Board Gary resigned as VP, and the Board discussed the vacancy and unanimously felt Les Scott should fill the temporary vacancy until an election could be held next season. Gary then appointed Les as the temporary VP with the Board's approval.
The board then discussed the filling of the temporary vacancy of At-large representative. It was unanimously decided that Dean Wineinger be appointed until an election could be held next season. Gary then called Dean and asked if he would accept the temporary appointment. Dean agreed.
