without filing a written statement of good cause to the National President prior
to the meeting, fail to attend two (2) consecutive national meetings, is subject

received by the National President. The National President will make
determination as to whether the absence is excused or unexcused, and the
National Director will be notified.”
(9) It will be the duty of the Regional Nominating
Committee Chairman to notify any incumbent officer holder in the region who is
not being re‐nominated.

be forwarded to, and considered by, the Region President.
(12) Certify, in
writing, to the Chairperson of the National Nominating Committee, compliance
with the provision of #11.
