  • Removes an Officer from his or her role between General Assembly meetings if a majority of Committee members feel that an Officer is not fulfilling his or her role or is not working in the best interests of the association. (In case of such a removal, the Committee will immediately call an extraordinary General Assembly to elect a replacement.)
