Role of the Past President
The past president of MeOTA has stepped down from the position of president, but remains on the executive board for a one year term. The past president remains a voting member of MeOTA as well. The past president must continue to be a member of AOTA and maintain communication with ASAP and AOTA for 6 months. One role of the past president is to communicate with MeOTA members and community members as warranted. The past president is also a member of the finance committee. A very important aspect of the past presidents role in MeOTA is to support the president in fulfilling her/his obligations.
