Note about positions/titles

Promotions and demotions are administered at the UTBA anniversary party in January each year and the Utah County lunch in August. The exception to this rule is for people who are in their first year of membership with UTBA. Their promotions can be administered on a rolling basis during their first 12 months in UTBA. Thereafter, their status is maintained through January 1st, at which time judgments about their title will be based on the 12 months prior to January 1st.
