Bylaws of the International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation
4. Officers of the ICCP

1. The Officers direct and coordinate all activities of the Commission, and function on a continuing basis, as required, between General Assemblies. The Officers consist of a President, Vice-President, and a Secretary, elected by the Executive Committee.

2. The President is elected by the ICCP Executive Committee during the General Assembly. His/Her term of office is for one period of 4 years. He/She is eligible for immediate re-election but only for one additional period of 4 years.

3. The Vice-President is elected by the ICCP Executive Committee during the General Assembly. His/Her term of office is also for one period of 4 years. He/She is eligible for immediate re-election but only for one additional period of 4 years.

4. The Secretary is elected by the ICCP Executive Committee during the General Assembly. His/Her term of office is for one period of 4 years. He/she is eligible for immediate re-election, but can serve no more than three (3) consecutive terms.

5. If the Office of the President becomes vacant between two General Assemblies, the Vice-President assumes the Presidency subject to the willingness of the Vice-President to do this. Alternatively, the Secretary will solicit nominations and organize an election by electronic mail within 90 days.

6. If the Office of the Vice-President becomes vacant between two General Assemblies, the office will remain vacant until the next election at the following General Assembly. Alternatively, the President may request that the Secretary solicit nominations and organize an election by electronic mail.

7. If the office of the Secretary becomes vacant between two General Assemblies, the President will appoint a member of the Executive Committee to the position of Secretary, subject to the concurrence of the Vice President.

8. Term limits for Officers supercede those governing regular members of the Executive Committee. Thus, a newly elected President could serve 2 consecutive terms after having served the prior term as a regular member of the Executive Committee. In the same way, the term limit for President supercedes those for Vice-President or Secretary, and the term limit for Vice-President supercedes that for Secretary. However, a retiring Officer may only be immediately elected to regular membership if they only served a single term as a Officer and were not a regular member during the term immediately before that.
