Article VIII: Removal

  1. Basis of Removal

    An officer may be removed from office for improper conduct or neglect of duty.

  2. Valid Cause
    1. Willful or excessive violation of the Alpha Gamma Sigma, Alpha Chapter By-laws;
    2. Willful disregard of decisions made by the executive board;
    3. Failure or refusal to disclose necessary information on matters of chapter business;
    4. Unwarranted attacks on any officer or refusal to cooperate with an officer;
    5. Misrepresentation of the chapter or any of its officers;
    6. Contributing to the creation of a hostile environment within the chapter;
    7. Violation of PCC’s Standards of Student Conduct, as defined in the PCC Catalog;
    8. Violation of PCC’s Board Policies or Administrative regulations.
  3. Procedure

    The intention of the following steps at all stages is to seek restoration of the officer to a position of responsibility.

    1. At the first indication of improper conduct giving rise to offense, the officer under question is to be approached directly.
    2. If the officer under question does not listen, the individual with charges is to seek reconciliation in the presence of one other and a chapter Advisor.
    3. If the matter has been established, and if the offending officer refuses to listen, the issue can be brought before the chapter membership upon a unanimous vote of the board, for the chapter to seek restoration of the officer.
    4. After this stage the board votes by anonymous ballot whether to remove the officer. A 3/5 vote will suffice. The officer on removal loses good standing to attain membership that term, but is not barred from membership in future. However future eligibility for leadership is disallowed.
  4. Subjugation of Disciplinary Action

    Proceedings for violation of Student Conduct at the Student Affairs level or higher supersede any actions taken by the Alpha Gamma Sigma chapter.
