The U.S COPD Coalition will be hosting its Bi-Annual Business Meeting on May 21st in San Francisco from 9am-12pm PT. During this meeting we will hold elections for new Board of Directors (formerly Executive Committee) members. According to the bylaws there should be up to five professional health organization member representatives and up to six patient, foundation or state coalition representatives serving on the Board with a minimum of one member for each category. The bylaws also state that Board members will be elected for a term of three years and that two new members should be elected each year with two current members being rotated off. The Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer would then be elected by a majority vote of the board and would serve a two year term.
