Presently Canon 12 of the Diocese reads:
TRUSTEES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH
Sec. 12.1 There shall be elected by the Diocesan Convention three (3) Trustees of the University of the South, consisting of one (1) Clerical and two (2) Lay persons.
Sec. 12.2 One (1) Trustee is to be elected each year for a three (3) year term.
Sec. 12.3 If a position becomes vacant for any reason it shall be filled by election for the unexpired term at the next Diocesan Convention.
Sec. 12.4 If a Trustee has served two (2) consecutive terms he may not serve again until at least one (1) year after the expiration of his period of service; provided, however, that a Trustee who serves a term of less than two (2) years to which he has been elected to fill a vacancy, shall be eligible for election to two (2) full terms.
