The Board of Directors of the LPA moves that the following amendment to the bylaws be approved to create the office of Chairman-Elect.

The Chairman-Elect shall serve as Vice-Chairman of the LPA and shall succeed the Chairman of the Board when his/her term expires. 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.
