the President shall designate to act as the principal officer of

the corporation with the title and functions provided in the

bylaws. The other governors appointed by the President shall be

officials of departments and agencies of the United States

Government, whose positions and interests qualify them to

contribute to carrying out the programs and purposes of the

corporation. At least one, but not more than three, of those

officials shall be selected from the Armed Forces.

(B) The chapters shall elect 30 governors at the national

convention under procedures for nomination and election that

ensure equitable representation of all chapters, with regard to

geographical considerations, the size of the chapters, and the

size of the populations served by the chapters.

(C) The board shall elect 12 governors as members-at-large.

Those governors shall be individuals who are representative of

the national interests that the corporation serves, and with

which it is desirable that the corporation have close

or as soon as practicable after the convention.

each governor is 3 years. However, the term of office of a governor

appointed by the President (except the principal officer of the

corporation) expires if, before the end of the 3-year term, the

governor retires from the official position held at the time of

appointment as a governor.

(2) The President shall fill as soon as practicable a vacancy in

the office of the principal officer of the corporation or in the

position of another governor appointed by the President. The board

shall make a temporary appointment to fill a vacancy occurring in

an elected position on the board. An individual appointed by the

board to fill a vacancy serves until the next national convention.

of a chapter. However, the board may allow the election of

governors by proxy at the national convention if the board believes

a national emergency makes attendance at the national convention

impossible.

Commemorate the Women of the Civil War"), 38 Stat. 233), that was

built as the permanent headquarters of the American Red Cross, the

predecessor organization to the corporation.

In subsection (a)(2), the words "That there is hereby authorized

In subsection (a)(3), the words "That authority be, and is

(ch. 42, 46 Stat. 66) to reflect subsequent transfers of functions.

The office of Public Buildings and Grounds under the Chief of

Engineers was abolished and the functions of the Chief of

Engineers, United States Army, were transferred to the Director of

Public Buildings and Public Parks of the National Capital by

section 3 of the Act of February 26, 1925 (ch. 339, 43 Stat. 983).

The office of Public Buildings and Public Parks of the National

Capital was abolished and its functions transferred to the Office

of National Parks, Buildings and Reservations of the Department of

the Interior by section 2 of Executive Order No. 6166, effective

June 10, 1933. The name of the latter office was changed to

"National Park Service" by section 1 of the Act of March 2, 1934

(ch. 38, 48 Stat. 389). The functions of the Director of the

National Park Service related to public buildings were transferred

to the Federal Works Administrator by section 303(b) of

Reorganization Plan No. I of 1939 (5 App. U.S.C.). The functions of

the Federal Works Administrator were transferred to the

Administrator of General Services by section 103(a) of the Act of

June 30, 1949 (ch. 288, 63 Stat. 380). The words "the corporation

building" in 36:13, and "the American Red Cross shall at all times

be charged with the responsibility, the care, keeping, and

maintenance of the said memorial building" in 36:15, for clarity
