  1. Can a director or an officer run for an another office while he or she is in mid term of an existing electected term. Can they run for a different position without resigning from the current postion in the organization they hold.
  2. We have a 15 member Board of Directors for a social service non-profit. We are dedicated to best practices and want to be sure we do things right as we are growing our Board and organization. Here is where I am confused... Our Board is getting ready to go through a nominating process for our Directors and Officers (Pres, VP, etc as outlined in our Bylaws). Our Bylaws state that the Executive Committee is charged to "set the slate of officers". Problem is our Bylaws have on Article for Officers and a totally seperate Article for Directors. No where in our Bylaws does it refer to a Director as an Officer. So we are trying to determine who is responsible for nominating the Directors. I read throught the 11th ED and it refers to Directors under the Officers section, so I am wondering if the Executive Committee would be the ones to nominate Directors as well, even though they are not refered to as officers in the Bylaws (and in fact have their own Article in the Bylaws). A BIG thank you for anyone who can help us ensure our nominating process is correct based on Roberts Rules and our Bylaws!
  3. Our directors want to be allowed to appoint the nominating committy and have no nominations from the floor. Is this legal?
  4. Hello, all. Well, I think the drama our organization was facing is (possibly) fading - at least for the time being - and we're moving onto the revision of our Bylaws. There have been concerns raised with my suggestion of including the phrase, "or until the Officer/Director's successor is elected" when qualifying the length of the term. Current Board members wonder if this might not mean that they would be forced to stay on the Board "in the event of a public emergency or of difficulty in obtaining a nominee for office." My response has been that a Board position for our organization is a volunteer position, one that can be resigned at any time. No Board member can be compelled to stay on if they do not wish to do so. Including this phrase, however, allows them to do so...and also makes the potential removal of a Board member easier. In turn, they would like to see something in writing about not being forced to stay on. I haven't been able to find anything in RRONR 10 about voluntary Board membership.Does it contain anything that would pertain to that issue? Louise

    election of directors

    We have to elect three directors. Can all nominees be placed on one ballot and top three win or do we need three individual elections?

    Election of directors

    Our organization elects three directors each year. Question is: Must there be three separate votes and have them voted in one at a time, or can we have members vote for three nominees on one ballot with the top three vote-getters declared elected. If we can go with "top 3", is there a percentage of votes that must be attained before being declared "elected"?
