Steering Committee members may serve more than one term provided the terms are seperated by at least one year of abscence from the Steering Committee. Members chosen for the Steering Committee shall have their EAB memberships automatically extended through the term of their service on the Steering Committee. If a Steering Committee member fails to serve his or her entire term, a replacement will be chosen to complete the remaining portion of the term. The Chairman and the Vice-Chairman will serve in that capacity for the entire Executive Advisory Board. Steering Committee candidates will be nominated by the Dean and members of the Steering Committee and accepted by a majority vote of the entire Steering Committee.

The Chairman will serve a one-year term. A member may not serve two consecutive terms as Chairman. If a chairman is unable to complete the term, a replacement will be appointed by the Steering Committee to complete the term.
