The Duties of President Elect, President and Past President are:

President. It shall be the duty of the President to provide leadership in the activities of the Society by making arrangements for the National meeting/convention and presiding over it (as described above), by calling meetings of the National Council and presiding at them, by appointing the members of all national committees, and by performing such other duties as are ordinarily assigned to the office.

President-Elect. It shall be the duty of the President-Elect to serve as presiding officer of the Society in the absence of the President.  The President-Elect normally assumes the office of Nu Rho Psi President after serving one year as President-Elect. However, the President-Elect shall immediately assume the responsibilities of the presidency should the President resign or be unable to complete the term of office. If the office of President-Elect becomes vacant for any reason, a new election will be held at the earliest convenient time.

Past-President. It shall be the duty of the Past-President to advise the President, to chair the Elections Committee and to update the historical record of the Society.
