Hello looking for guidance here. There is a convention committee (created by the Bylaws) that allows for members and alternates to be designated by different bodies. Can one be both an appointee of one body and an alternate for another? Example: Organization A appoints Ms. Smith as its alternate and appoints 5 primary appointees. Organization B appoints Ms. Smith as its primary appointee and Ms. Jones as its alternate. If any one of Organization A's primary appointees do not attend a meeting, may Ms. Smith substitute in as an alternate and then Ms. Jones is the primary for Organization B. Or does Ms. Smith have to decide which she is for the whole existence of the committee? The rules and bylaws for both Organizations are silent on this situation (well on this precise one - it does mention alternates).
