The Chairman-Elect shall assist the Chairman of the Board with planning and administrative duties and, in his/her absence, shall preside over meetings of the Board of Directors and convenings of LPA. Should the Chairman of the Board be unable to complete his/her term, the Chairman-Elect shall succeed to the office.
