It was decided that elected officals should include a Vice-Chairman-Electrical to represent the previous members of the AIEE and the a Vice-Chairman-Electronics to represent the previous members of the IRE. Other elected officers were the Chairman, Executive Vice-Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. It was agreed by the early founders that the chairmanship would alternate between the electrical and electronic members. Elected officers served for twleve months beginning July 1.
