Yes there is a Past-President Ex-Officio position, which is a 2 year term as well. So, you are correct, the succession plan outlines a 6 year commitment. While we all more than understand the changing environment and finances of healthcare, for SHVL to remain strong and to grow, it is clear that we need that kind of continuity. For any kind of organization to thrive it must maintain a balance in leadership between new individuals with fresh perspectives and those that have a depth of knowledge.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review the proposed by-law changes, Frank. I appreciate your comment and encourage others to respond as well. Hope to see you in Nashville!
