How do you list the past chair on our web site?

How To Run A Meeeting

If you would like to know more about how Parliamentarian Procedure from Little Ben, click here for my DVD called How To Run A Meeting.

Recently we our Board of Directors elected two co-chairs with the chair assuming the role as past-chair.

The past-chair will continue to have signing authority on legal and corporate documents and sign cheques. He will also provide assistance and guidance to the incoming co-chairs and CEO of the organizaiton. The Board of Directors is a Governance Board.

My question: how is the past chair listed ie our website and newsletter? I say he remains at the top of the food chain, followed by the co-chairs,the treasurer and then the secretary.

Dear Maria,

Top of the food chain? Oh, my gosh, what predators do you have out there? He had better be careful.
I do not understand why boards have co-chairs. Nor do I understand a "past-chair." Usually this would be someone who has already served in the position and was on his way out. In this case, the co-chairs should be listed together on the website. Perhaps side by side? That way there is not one higher than the other on this food chain. "Co" means equal. So that is how I would do it.

Cheerio!

Little Ben
