Governance and Constitution

The SPP elects officers and Executive Committee members at its annual business meeting. The President serves a one year term, and also serves as President-elect and Past President (ex officio positions on the Executive Committee) in the years before and after he or she presides. The President appoints Program Co-Chairs for the annual meeting of the year he or she presides. The Secretary-Treasurer serves a three-year term, and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the SPP. Executive Committee members serve three-year terms, on a rotational basis. The SPP makes every reasonable effort to keep an equal number of philosophers and scientists on the Executive Committee every year, to have both a philosopher and a scientist as yearly Program Co-Chairs, and to alternate the President yearly between philosophers and scientists.
