Ex president

Recommended Posts

Guest Judy Franklin

My club recently experienced the unexpected death of its newly elected President.  I know that the vice-president will fill her unexpired term but how do we fill the office of Vice-president? Do we need a special election, or can the executive committee appoint a new vice-president.  Our by-laws do not address this question.  Thank you.

Do your bylaws authorize the Executive Committee to act in the name of the society between the society's meetings? If so, this includes the power to fill vacancies. If not, the membership must fill the vacancy.

No, they simply say that the executive committee must follow Roberts Rules of Order.

Then you need to hold a special election with previous notice.
