No VP or President

11 posts in this topic

 Vacancies. Any vacancies occurring on the Board of Directors or among the Officers during the year shall be filled until the next annual election by a majority vote of all the then members of the Board of Directors; except that a vacancy in the office of President shall be filled automatically by the Vice President and the resulting vacancy in the office of Vice President shall be filled by the Board of Directors. 

My question is who would fill both of these positions under RRO as we do not have a Bylaw to go by in this case. When not written in our Bylaws we always have to fall to RRO.

I didn't see the other thread. I glanced through to see. I wasn't sure since both positions are vacant if the rule still applied in the same manner.

It would seem to me that, in the event both positions are vacant, both positions would be filled by the Board of Directors.

I agree, and I think this is rather clearly indicated by the bylaw provision which has been quoted.

Well, gee, I agree, too.... now that I've read the title of the thread!!  Now it all makes sense!

And a slightly legalistic approach to fill both positions would be to simply fill the V-P position twice.  First time the fillee instantly becomes the President, and the second fillee remains in the V-P position.

This a female horse club?

Can the Board of Directors appoint the outgoing President for another term?  Outgoing president was prevented from running since the bylaws designate he cannot serve more than twice in consecutive years.

Guest Margie, we really need more information in order to answer your question, but,  generally, no. If  your bylaws ssy the president cannot serve a third consecutive term, then he cannot serve such a term regardless of how he is selected. 

If this needs more follow up, please ask your questions again by starting a new topic and give us more information on the situation and quote exactly what your bylaws ssy about term limits.
