Annual Meeting of the 2016-2017 Faculty Assembly:

1. Election of 2016-2017 Officers and Committees. Article II of our bylaws say:

Section 2. Each spring, after the election of the new members of the Assembly and prior to Commencement, the incumbent officers shall convene the following year's Assembly for the Annual Meeting. The purpose of the Annual Meeting shall be to elect the Executive Committee, the Committee on Academic Affairs, the Committee on Faculty Affairs, and the Committee on Planning and Resources (See Article IV and Article V, Section 5). Elections shall proceed in the following sequence: President (if necessary), Vice-President, Secretary, the remaining members of the Executive Committee, the Committee on Academic Affairs, the Committee on Faculty Affairs, and the Committee on Planning and Resources. The incumbent Officers shall officiate at this meeting and shall distribute notices of the meeting and minutes as for regular meetings. Only the members of the following year's Assembly are eligible to vote in this meeting.

Section 3. In the event that more than two candidates are nominated for a position and none receives a majority of the votes cast on the first ballot, balloting continues with the name of the candidate receiving the fewest votes being dropped from the ballot, after each vote. In the event that there is no one candidate with the fewest votes, balloting continues with all names included until such time as a candidate receives a majority of votes cast (in which case he or she is declared elected) or until a candidate receives the fewest votes (in which case his or her name is dropped from the ballot and the balloting continues).

Section 4. Officers shall serve one-year terms and shall assume their duties on July 1.
