The President, the Vice President, the Evolution Letters Officer, and the Congress Organizer are elected for a two-year term. The JEB Editor-in-Chief, the Secretary, and the Executive Vice-President join the board for four years, at least. Beside the two-year term of office as president, the President is part of the steering committee as President-Elect during the two years before office and remains on the board as Past President for another two years.
