What happens if I do not finish my whole term in office?
If any Director position becomes vacant, the Board may appoint someone to fill the position for the remainder of the term. The Board may call a special election of the position if more than half the term remains.

If the President does not finish their current term in office, the remaining Board members will appoint an interim President who will stay in office until the end of that term.
