No election shall be conducted within an appropriate unit for the purpose of determining recognition more than once every twelve months.

C.                     No unit shall be deemed appropriate if it includes both professional and other employees nor shall any unit be deemed appropriate if it includes both supervisory and nonsupervisory personnel.
