If someone is due to take over a position, s/he can be referred to as "so & so elect".

I'm giving up a position shortly, what's the correct terminology for that? All I can think of is "bomb #21 (outgoing)", but that just makes me sound like some kind of extrovert. :eek:

Any suggestions? TIA,
Andy

You're right, it's outgoing so you would be Outgoing Bomb #21. I'm not aware of there being any other term for it other than the more colloquial Lame Duck Bomb #21. :D

Oh ... I was hoping for something with a little more gravitas. :(

Thanks WendyM. :)

I am going to comment, however, more information would have been helpful.:confused:

How about: Bomb #1 is moving to another position, and Bomb#2 is filling the vacated position? Just an example.

My bad, poochee.

I just meant for signing off correspondence. So if I was imminent, I'd put:

Regards,
bomb #21,
Preident elect


but since I'm soon-to-be-gone, it's be:

Regards,
bomb #21,
President ???


Ya see? :)

Until your position ends it is signed:
bomb #21
President

The incumbent retains the title; the use of "President-Elect" is to show that this person doesn't hold the office yet.

Makes sense gbrumb, point taken. Maybe I couldn't see that for the light at the end of the tunnel. ;)
