ISS GOVERNING COUNCIL & TERMS OF OFFICE

As of January 1, 2020

 

 

 

 

As of December 2014, the last time the ISS Articles & Bylaws were amended, the ISS Council divides into two general committees: an Executive Committee and an Advisory Committee, both of which are divided into subcommittees.  The Executive Committee is divided into “Elected Executive,” “Appointed Executive,” and “Honorary Executive.”  The Advisory Committee is divided into a “General Advisory Committee” and an “Honorary Advisory Committee.”   

 

The Elected Executive Committee of five officers {President, Vice President, Treasurer, Recording Secretary, and Membership Secretary} is to be elected by the membership at large and their job is to see to the day to day running of the ISS.  The Appointed Executive Committee of two officers, the Webmaster and the Director of Publications, and an Honorary Executive Committee, consisting of however many past ISS Presidents have accepted the invitation to serve, are to be readily available to the President for consultation and advice.   Only the votes of the Elected Executive Committee are final and binding; all other votes by other committees are advisory to the President and the Elected Officers.

 

The General Advisory Committee is to consist of fifteen members appointed by the President with majority approval of the Elected Executive Committee; The Honorary Advisory Committee is to consist of however many the President wishes to appoint, most for lifetime membership.  Members of both advisory committees shall largely be senior members who have distinguished themselves in some way in the study or practice or appreciations of literature or drama or theater in general and Shaw in particular, with the Honorary Advisory generally being reserved for the most elderly members.
