Now We Know

It seems that there is confusion on how to address a woman that fills the Chairman seat, so to help those of you that are curious as well as myself, I looked it up! 

Here's what I found:

How to Address a Female Chairperson

Using Correct Terms

  1. Use "Madam Chair" to address a female chair.
  2. Use "chair" or "chairperson" to be gender-neutral.
  3. Address the woman by a different gender-neutral title accepted by the chaired body.
  4. Use "chairman" as a gender-neutral term.

You may call it old fashioned or traditional but I call it respect for the seat therefore I will continue to refer to myself as the Chairman.
