  1. We have a national bylaw that states that any member in good standing may run for any office. At the district level each county takes turns to pick their person to run for the lower office at the district. The county decided some time ago that the last commander at the County Level will automatically be put forth for that seat. The current officers don't agree with that as they feel that it takes away their ability to pick their leaders at the next level, however the some of the past commanders argue that since they have done this before it is now a tradition and we must follow it. I remember something that states that we cannot make a rule at the lower level that takes away from the bylaws at the higher level. But also because something is tradition does that mean that we must always follow that? As this is an elected position it seems that the membership should be able to pick those that lead them and not have it decided for them by those that came before.
