The Committee shall nominate annually a Chair for each standing committee whose regulations do not indicate some other method of selection.

The Committee shall, as soon as practicable after the occurrence of a vacancy (or notice that one is to occur) in the office of Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, Secretary of the Corporation, or Treasurer of the University, submit to the Corporation a nominee or nominees to fill any and each such vacancy. In selecting nominees for these offices, the Committee shall not in the absence of special and compelling circumstances nominate any person to any office for more than three consecutive terms.
