(a) The principal officers of a cooperative are a president, one or more vice presidents as prescribed in the bylaws, a secretary and a treasurer.  The officers shall be elected annually by the board at the time and in the manner the bylaws provide.  The offices of secretary and treasurer may be combined in one person.  Each principal officer except the secretary and the treasurer, and one of the vice presidents if the bylaws provide for more than one, shall be a director of the cooperative.  The manager of a cooperative may hold the office of vice president if more than one vice president is provided for in the bylaws.

(b) Other officers may be chosen by the board.

(c) Officers have the authority and shall perform the duties the bylaws provide, or as the board determines, not inconsistent with the bylaws.  Any officer may be removed by the board whenever in its judgment the best interests of the cooperative will be served by removal.  Election or appointment of an officer does not of itself create contract rights.
