Past Officers of the PTCA

Since its inception, the PTCA officers have been Moderator, Moderator-elect (formerly Vice-moderator), Treasurer and Stated Clerk. The organizing moderator served only for the first meeting. Subsequent moderators served one-year terms for a calendar year until 1999 when the dates of office were changed. To facilitate the transition, Moderator Manley Olson was re-elected and served an additional six months. Since then the term has been one year. With two exceptions, the Vice-moderator/Moderator-elect has become Moderator. Joan Beebe declined to be nominated and Stanley Martin moved to Arizona. Judith Kim and David Colby thus became the only two Moderators not to have served as Vice-moderator. Because of the transition, Virginia Rassieur served for 18 months. The terms of Stated Clerk and Treasurer have normally been for three years. Under current by-laws the Treasurer can serve only two terms while there is no limit for the clerk.
