Board of Directors

The Chicago Ophthalmological Society is managed by its officers, Councillors and three immediate past-presidents which together serve as the board of directors.  In addition, the annual meeting and monthly conference program chairs are part of the governing body.  Finally, salaried executive director handles all of the day-to-day functions of the Society and carries out the initiatives of the Council. 

Officers serve one-year terms, while the Councillors serve staggered 3-year terms.  Program chairs are appointed by the president.
