  1. At our biennial national convention, our Society nominates and elects the nominating committee for the purpose of nominating a slate of national officers. Our bylaws state that the National President is not an ex officio member of this committee. If a vacancy should occur in the nominating committee before they submit their report at the next convention, can this vacancy be filled? If so, how? and by whom?
  2. Our bylaws stipulate that the president shall appoint all committees (of the board or the membership) special or standing. Is this provision in the nature of a rule that can be suspended by the membership at its annual general meeting?
  3. Our bylaws say that committees, standing or special, shall be appointed by the president as the corporation or the board of directors shall from time to time deem necessary to carry on the work of the corporation.
