About HOTARCHOTARC • P.O. Box 32 • Waco, TX 76703-0032
HOTARC's Board of Directors consists of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, the Past President, and three Directors. All officers are elected once a year by the general membership. The Directors are elected to three-year terms, with each Director's term staggered so that one new director is elected every year. (See each Director's term expiration-year listed above.)
Officers and Directors must be Full Members of HOTARC. All are elected by a simple majority vote of the members present at the Annual Meeting—the last meeting of the year. See our bylaws (links below) for more details.
HOTARC's Full Members have full voting rights in Club business and can hold elected or appointed Officer, Director, or Chair positions in the Club. Associate Members, Family Members, and Lifetime Members are not permitted to vote or hold office. All HOTARC members are listed in the Club Directory, and subscribed to the Club's email list. Lifetime Members and Family Members are exempt from annual dues.
