  1. One of our directors served for a two year term and at the end of it agreed to finish the term of another director who resigned. The nominating committee has asked if she is eligible to serve another term as director. Terms are two years and are staggered with one director elected in even years and two in odd numbered years. Our bylaws state: "No person shall hold more than one office at a time and no officer shall be eligible for three consecutive terms in the same office." (emphasis added) A's initial term as director began at the election meeting in 2017. When A's term ended in 2019, one of the directors elected in 2018 (Director B) resigned and A agreed to finish her term at the 2019 election meeting. The nominating committee would like to nominate A for another term as director for the upcoming 2020 election meeting. (The 2020 meeting is when B's term as director would have expired and when A is willing to take on another term.) Assuming for the moment that A served more than half of B's term, here is the question: Is the office of "at-large director" the "same office" as that held by another at-large director at the same time? And if it is different, is a director who at the end of her term filled another director's vacancy eligible to run for a term as director? Put another way, is the office "director" a collection of responsibilities that are identical for all who hold the office or are there three identical director offices? I believe this is ambiguous in RONR. (Note that on page 452 RONR says VPs should be numbered if there is more than one so there is no confusion about who takes the chair in the president's absence.)
  2. We currently have a husband/wife board combo each receiving 1 vote. Our President would now like to add his wife to our board, and another board member would like to add his wife as well. This would mean 6 votes of our 10 person board would be occupied between 3 households. We are a 501c3 organization. Does Roberts Rule of Orders say anything about that? I see it as a chance for collusion and an act of poor governing? The current husband/wife combo has stated they have no problem stepping down.
