I am the president of a small board. Per our bylaws, I appointed a nominating committee to nominate officers for 2013. The committee consists of three board members, and one member agreed to serve as chair of the committee. Before calling a meeting of the committee, the chair spoke with possible nominees and had a slate already in mind, which he then presented to the committee at its meeting. One committee member was very unhappy with this and complained to me. Are there any rules about identifying and contacting potential nominees before a nominating committee meeting? Was it OK for the chair to do so, and then present a slate for consideration to the committee members? (I am stepping down at the end of my term, December 31 2012, so I am not running in this election.)
Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionOur Nominating Committee slated a person in a Director Position (3 year appointment) and that persopn was duly elected. Our subsidiary corporation was in need of Officers and this Director was a better fit for that position. According to our by-laws an officer or director cannot sit on both boards except for the Presidents of both Boards. The Director has submitted his resignation. In our by-laws, a director who has resigned is replaced with a simple majority vote of the board of directors and serves until the next election. Since the director has not been formally installed, can we not have the nominating committee slate this position and vote on it before installation? That was we preserve the three year cycle and make it easier. Since the position is technically not vacant until 1/1/13, would our current bylaws even apply?
If a member of an Association is placed on the ballot by Nomination from Petition, does the nominating committee have the right to sperate and label their candidates versus Nomination by Petition candidates on the official ballot? Thank you.
