Past and Present UVC Officers

A new officer for the sixth position, alternating between Coal and Mining and Exploration, will be elected each year. The six current officers will form a nominating committee to choose candidates. Nominations are due by October 1, and the Chairperson will mail a ballot containing the top two or three nominees who are willing to serve to all members of the committee. On November 1, the candidate receiving the most votes will be named to the sixth position. In the event of a resignation, the Chairperson, after seeking advice from the remaining officers, will decide how to fill the vacancy. The following table provides a list of all the past and present Chairpersons for the UVC.
