Proposed addition to the bylaws:

Section 8.05.01 Past Chair. The outgoing Chair shall serve for one additional term on the Board in the role of Past Chair.

Pro:
The purpose of the addition is to provide greater continuity on the Board. The Past Chair position will not replace an open position on the Board; there is no limit on the number of Directors who may serve on the Board.

Con:
The addition of the Past Chair position may increase the cost of Board meetings though members in the field are expected to pay their own travel and lodging to attend Board meetings.
