Not later than February 1st of each year the President shall appoint a Nominating Committee to bring before the Annual meeting of members a proposed slate of Officers and Directors for the forthcoming term.

The Nominating Committee shall submit to the Board at the first regular meeting its report as to nominations for Officers. Additional nominations for officers may be made by Directors at such meeting. The election of officers shall be by written ballot if more than one individual is nominated for any office; otherwise, the election of officers shall be by show of hands.
Amendment: addition of the following:
