Parent Group Certificate of Election Management:
- "add historical" Certificate of Election will not update the list of Officers, nor will it satisfy the CoE requirements for your Parent Organization.
- "special election" will allow you to update a single officer instead of requiring the entire required slate of officers to be entered.
- List of Current Officers in Info/Officers page and OLP site will update after the approval by the Parent Organization.
- Parent Group Requirements may disallow a single person from holding multiple offices.
