The Chapter Chair is elected by the members of the Chapter for a one-year term. This position is normally seen as a natural progression after holding some or all of the other elected Executive positions of Treasurer, Secretary and Vice-Chair. All the elected positions can be extended for subsequent terms by the process of re-election.
The Chair is responsible for presiding over all Chapter meetings and represents the Chapter to ASIS International and at external functions, performing the range of duties normally associated with a Chief Executive Officer.
The Chair is also the Chair of the Chapter Executive Committee and serves as the primary point of contact between the Regional Vice-President and the Chapter.
The Chapter Vice-Chair presides over all chapter meetings, functions and events when the Chapter Chairman is not in attendance.
The Vice-Chair uses considerable independent judgement in decisions that influence operations at the chapter level to ensure the solvency of the chapter and ROI to chapter members.
