President or Chairman?

Recommended Posts

Their existing bylaws state Chairman and Co-Chairman in lieu of President and Vice President. Which is correct or most appropriate or does it matter?

The analogous positions would be chair and vice-chair. The term "co-chair" implies two equivalent positions.

President and vice-president are more compatible with RONR.

Actually, in the US today, I believe Chair (or Chairman) and Vice_Chair (or Vice-Chairman) tend to be more commonly used as titles for those who Lead (or Chair) a board or a similar role in an organization.

But the presiding officer of the organization (which is presumably what we're talking about here) is typically called the president. Which helps to distinguish the office from the chair(man) of the board, especially in those instances where the same person fills both roles.
