Article VIII: Removal of Officers
Upon petition by forty or more Chapter members that a person holding an elective office under this Constitution be removed, the Executive Council shall arrange for a meeting of the Chapter wherein the matter may be discussed. The person holding that office shall be specifically invited to attend such a meeting and the meeting shall be held at a time when the office holder can be expected to attend.
At a meeting of the Chapter, subsequent to the meeting at which the discussion was held, a secret ballot shall be taken on the question: "Shall (name of person) be removed from the office of (name of office)?" If a majority of those voting at that time, votes "yes", the person named shall be removed from office. If a majority does not vote "yes", the incumbent shall continue in office and shall not again be subject to removal proceedings during that term on the same charges.
In the event a person is removed from office, an election for a successor shall be held in accordance with Article VII, Election of Officers, Section 3.
