Officers and Trustees

Members elect a President, Secretary, Treasurer, and twenty-four trustees, who collectively select the editors of the Review and the Executive Officer. The President serves a two-year term and one-year as President-elect and Immediate Past-President. The Secretary and Treasurer each serve two year terms and Editors (general editor and book review editor) serve three year terms. The Executive Officer's appointment is five years, renewable.  Elections are held in the Fall of each year for open offices. Each year, the newly elected trustee with the most votes serves as a member of the Executive Committee.
