Abstract

The Executive Council (EXCL) was created by the Board of Directors (BOD) in 1992 to replace the Executive Committee. Like the Executive Committee the Council draws its power from the BOD and is designed to help govern the Association when the BOD is not in session and also to interpret the Constitution, By-Laws and policy. Unlike the Executive Committee the Council was not designed to make recommendations in policy. The Council covers mainly Financial and Accounting, and Organizational and Administrative matters, although they also work on Public Relations, Communications, Education, Legal, Membership, Retirees and Insurance, Policies and Procedures, Affiliations, Hiring, Awards, Scholarships and Donations. The membership of the Council consists of President, First Vice President, Vice President of Finance, Vice President of Administration and Executive Vice Presidents. The Executive Council records are made up of Minutes, Agendas, Budgets, and background information on subjects covered by the council during the years 1992-2001.

History

The Executive Council (EXCL) was created in 1992 by the Board of Directors (BOD) at the 34th Meeting to replace the Executive Committee. Like the Executive Committee the Council draws its power from the BOD and is designed to help govern the Association when the BOD is not in session and also to interpret the Constitution, By-Laws and policy. All action taken is reported to, and subject to review by, the Executive Board. Unlike the Executive Committee the Council was not designed to make recommendations in policy.

The Council consists of the President, First Vice President, Vice President of Administration, Vice President of Finance, and Executive Vice Presidents who are elected for a two-year term by airline groups at the bi-annual BOD meeting. They must meet a minimum of once every three months, but usually meet between 6-8 times a year, and can be called into special session if needed. The Council covers mainly financial, accounting, organizational and administrative matters, although they also work on public relations, communications, education, legal, membership, retirees and insurance, policies and procedures, affiliations, hiring, awards, scholarships and donations.
