All members of the Board will be surveyed regarding the performance of the Chancellor. The results of the evaluation will be reported to the Board no later than the September Board meeting for the year in which the evaluation is conducted.
    3. Notwithstanding the above, in any year in which a full, formal evaluation of the Chancellor is not scheduled, any five (5) members of the Board may request such a formal evaluation by written request submitted to the Vice Chair, and the Vice Chair shall conduct the evaluation as set forth in Section B, above. The results of the evaluation shall be reported at such time as specified by the Vice Chair, but no later than the next regularly scheduled board meeting following the completion of the evaluation.
