It is the president's responsibility to lead the Board of Directors, committees and members toward constructive goals. The president is the bridge between the administration of the past and future president, and must insure that the chapter moves forward. The president is the chief officer of the chapter. The president supervises and directs the activities of the chapter, is subject to the control of the board of Directors and implements policies established by the members.
