C. Establishment of Quadrants, and Quadrant Directors.  

 Four Quadrants. There shall be four districts (hereafter Quadrants), a Northeast Quadrant, a Southwest Quadrant, a Southeast Quadrant and a Northwest Quadrant, which shall be created by establishing (a) a line from north to south down the middle of Fourth Street, and (b ) a line from east to west down the middle of Spruce Street.  The Board by a 75% vote of those present may adjust boundary lines and may add districts.  Each quadrant shall have three quadrant directors on the Board of Directors.

  1.  Nomination of Quadrant Directors.  Members to fill positions as quadrant directors may be nominated by petition signed by at least ten regular members from within their respective quadrants.  Persons may also be nominated for such positions by the Nominating and Elections Committee as set forth in Article VIII.

 Quadrant Director Elections. One person from each quadrant shall be elected as a quadrant

Director each year at the annual election by regular members of that quadrant for a term of three years or until a successor is elected, such term beginning on the first day of June following such election.

  1. Vacancies. If a vacancy occurs in the office of any quadrant director, a regular member residing in

such Quadrant shall, following timely recommendation of the Nominating and Elections Committee, be elected by the Board to serve until the next annual election meeting at which time the regular members of that quadrant shall elect a successor to serve for the remainder of that term.

  1. Successive Terms. No quadrant director shall serve more than one three-year term in succession,

except that (a) this restriction shall not prevent any person from immediately thereafter serving as an officer or designated director or director-at-large, and (b) any quadrant director elected to fill a vacancy, and who has not  served more than two years in that capacity, may be elected to serve a successive full term of three years.

D. Designated Directors.
The owners’ or residents’ associations of Hopkinson House, Independence Place, Society Hill Towers, and Penn’s Landing Square shall each designate one of their members to serve a term of one year as a designated director. The person so designated shall meet all of the requirements set forth herein for eligibility to serve as a member of the Board of Directors. Any vacancy shall be filled by the particular association. No designated director shall serve more than three successive one-year terms, but this restriction shall not prevent any such person from immediately thereafter serving as an officer or director-at-large or quadrant director.

E. Directors-at-Large.

Eight directors-at-large shall be elected by the regular members at the annual election to serve a one year term or until their successors are duly elected, such terms to begin on the first day of June following such election.

A member may be nominated for election as a director-at-large by petition signed by at least 10 regular members. Members may also be nominated by the Nominating and Elections Committee as set forth in Article VIII. A vacancy occurring in the office of director-at-large shall, following timely recommendation of the Nominating and Elections Committee, be filled by the Board of Directors for the unexpired portion of the term.

No director-at-large shall serve more than three successive one-year terms, but this restriction shall not prevent such person from immediately thereafter serving as an officer or designated director or quadrant director.

F. Continuing Director(s).

A person who has served at least two years as President shall, upon the expiration of his or her last year as President, be deemed to be a Continuing Director and may serve in that capacity for three successive years (except that such person shall not be a Continuing Director at any time such person is an officer or director under B(1) through B(4) above). A Continuing Director shall have all of the rights and obligations of any other director.

G. Board Participation and Attendance at Meetings.

Board members are required to support the Association and to devote substantial time to the Association’s activities, including participation on at least one committee or special project.

If, at any time after the sixth meeting of the Board in any fiscal year, any director (other than the continuing director) shall have attended less than half of the meetings of the Board during that fiscal year, that director’s term shall then terminate, provided that the director may be reinstated by a majority vote of the remaining directors at any time prior to the filling of the vacancy as hereinafter provided.
