Dear Sir / Madam,
NO. The Act and the bye laws clearly spell out that an Associate member cannot become an office bearer of the Society. So the Associate member can never become the Chairman / Secretary or Treasurer of the Society.
If there is no restriction, then an associate member may be office bearer.
