Article 3: Directors

Section 1: Number

The Board of Directors of Troubled Times, Inc. is composed of twelve seats. Board members are elected by the general membership of Troubled Times, Inc. during the annual elections for a term of one year. Board members may be elected for contiguous terms, serving indefinitely, should the membership so vote. If a board seat is not filled during the annual election, due to lack of a quorum from the membership, run-off elections will be held. Only nominees securing one-half the quorum required on the original election will be listed in the run-off election. Where the run-off election does not results in a quorum of the general membership, the seat will remain vacant. Vacant board seats may result in a special election at the mid point of the year, if the membership has increased and the board deems such a special election appropriate.
