The purpose of the Board of Governors is to help maintain the league, interpret and clarify the rules, settle disputes or protests, assist in sportsmanship rulings, and help promote the overall betterment of the league.
The Board of Governors (BOG) shall consist of player representatives and the League Operators. Any member of the SDAPA may nominate a member to serve as a BOG representative. A Nominee may only become an actual representative of the BOG if the League Operators approve the nomination and the existing BOG representatives vote the nominee in by majority. Preference will be given to nominees who are active members with a minimum of one-year membership. All Board members, whether currently serving or newly nominated, must be SDAPA members in good standing with the league. Every effort will be made to ensure that the Board consists of representatives from all geographical areas participating in the SDAPA. BOG members may represent more than one division.
The BOG will elect a Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson and Secretary to serve one-year terms. In the event that any of these elected officials cannot finish his or her term, an election will be conducted to appoint another BOG member to finish the term. There is no limit to the number of terms an official may serve.
The Board of Governors will handle the regular business of the organization as comes before it. Board meetings will be held on a quarterly basis. The Board may reschedule the regular Board meeting as conflicts occur due to event scheduling or other calendar considerations.
All official decisions will be made by a vote of the quorum. A quorum is defined as the League Operator, Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson plus two additional voting members of the Board. If no quorum is present, matters that arise at a Board meeting and require immediate action will be handled by "Executive Privilege." Executive Privilege will consist of consenting votes of the League Operator and either the Chairperson or Vice-Chairperson.
