Addressing Chairman when Vice President Chairs

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Our Bylaws prescribe that the Vice President of our Society shall serve as chairman of its Executive Committee. Shall I address him as Mr. President or Mr. Vice President at the Executive Committe meetings? Also, when I write, "...the [President/Vice President] being in the chair, and the Secretary being present," in the minutes, should I write President or Vice president in that instance?

Thank you for your help.

If a woman I assume this extends to "Ms Chairwoman"?

Well, technically RONR’s preference is to use “Chairman” regardless of the gender. I have seen many societies use “Chair” or “Chairperson.” I do not often see “Chairwoman.”

Well, you know what they say about ASSUME.

Or maybe you don't.  I guess I just assumed you did.  Oops, it's contagious!

I probably should rethink this.
