The Chair presides and sets the agenda of the meetings of the Executive Committee. The Vice-Chair is the Chair-Elect of the Section and, upon completion of the term of office, becomes the Chair. The Secretary-Treasurer keeps the books, takes and distributes minutes, distributes funds, pays all bills, and is responsible for all mailings. The Council Observer reports on APS Council meetings, brings items of interest to the Section to the Council's attention, and communicates with the Section (voting) Councilors.
