The Tax Section bylaws provide that petitions setting forth the names of other nominees for the office of chair-elect may be made by any 10 members of the section. Those petitions must be filed with Tax Section Secretary Dana Apfelbaum at [email protected] no later than September 15, to allow inclusion on a written ballot. Nominations for the office of chair-elect will not be permitted unless the nominations have been timely made and in the manner described in the Tax Section bylaws, Article III, Section 2(b). If there is only one nomination for the office of chair-elect, that nominee will become chair-elect.
The term of office of the chair-elect runs concurrently with that of the chair and begins on July 1 after the section’s annual meeting at which the chair-elect is elected and ends on the succeeding June 30, when the chair-elect automatically assumes the office of chair.
