Term of office - President, First Vice President, Second Vice President

BNAPS was established in 1943. At that time, four interim officers were appointed: President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. The interim officers served until the results of the first election were announced in 1945. The officers were elected for a two-year term, 1945-1946. From 1945 to 1998, the term of office corresponded to two calendar years.

At its meeting held at BNAPEX 1997 in St. John's, NL, on 27 August, the Board of Directors passed a motion to change the dates that terms begin and end. With the exception of the Treasurer, elected officials (that is, directors and officers) assume their duties immediately following the BNAPEX convention. Their term ends at the end of the BNAPEX convention in the final year of their term.

The Treasurer's term remained aligned with the calendar year. The Treasurer's term is two years. The term begins on 1 January of the first year and ends on 31 December of the second year.

The office of Second Vice President was abolished at the end of 1992. The Regional Group Coordinator position became the office of Vice President Regional Groups and the Study Group Coordinator became the Vice President Study Groups.
