Q:  Does the newly elected Conference President need to be inducted into office by the Council President to make it official?

A:  There is no formal requirement for the Council President to induct a newly elected Conference President.  There are liturgies/ceremonies that are available for newly elected Presidents that can be found in the book “Vincentian Celebrations” available through the National Office.

 Q:  Our District President resigned recently.  Instead of electing a new President, three Conference Presidents agreed to take part of the responsibilities.  So far it is working well.  Are we in compliance with the Rule or do we have to have an election?

A:  Within the structure of the Society, each District Council must have one, formal President and a full slate of officers.  Each of the Conference Presidents who accepted the specific roles you identified are effectively Vice-Presidents or Committee Chairs in their roles.  Only one person may be District Council President and fulfill those responsibilities.  An election will be necessary.

P: ¿Es necesario que el Presidente de la Conferencia recién electo sea investido por el Presidente del Consejo para hacerlo oficial?

R: No existe un requisito formal para que el Presidente del Consejo incorpore a un Presidente de Conferencia recién electo.  Hay Liturgias/Ceremonias que están disponibles para los Presidentes recién electos que se pueden encontrar en el libro “Celebraciones Vicentinas” disponible a través de la Oficina Nacional.

 P: Nuestro Presidente de Distrito renunció recientemente.  En lugar de elegir un nuevo Presidente, tres Presidentes de Conferencia acordaron asumir parte de las responsabilidades.  Hasta ahora está funcionando bien.  ¿Estamos cumpliendo con la Regla o debemos tener una elección?

R: Dentro de la estructura de la Sociedad, cada Consejo de Distrito debe tener un Presidente formal, y una lista completa de funcionarios.  Cada uno de los Presidentes de Conferencia que aceptaron las funciones específicas que usted identificó son efectivamente Vicepresidentes o Presidentes de Comités en sus funciones.  Solo una persona puede ser Presidente del Consejo de Distrito y cumplir con esas responsabilidades.  Será necesaria una nueva elección.
