9.2. \chair

This command defines the name of the committee chairperson. It defines the internal command \chair@.

Formerly there was a separate \cochairs command, with two arguments, that defined two co-chairpersons, and the second name was saved as \second@chair. However, Dave Johnson of the Graduate Office has stated that this is not allowed: there must always be one and only one chairperson. The command remains here in case this ruling is ever reversed, and because the author was too lazy to remove it.
