  1. I am currently the President of a 5-member Board of Directors for a senior housing cooperative in Minnesota. The other officers are a Vice-President, a Secretary, and a Treasurer. The term of office for all officers is one year. There are seven months left in that period. Yesterday, for personal and/or health reasons, our Vice President has submitted her letter of immediate resignation from the Board and therefore also from her office as our Vice President. Five months ago, the five officers were elected in the order of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer. When the Vice Presidency becomes vacant, does RONR require or recommend a re-election of 1) all four officers, 2) the Vice President and the two officers elected after the Vice-President (i.e. the Secretary, and the Treasurer), 3) only the Vice President, or 4) something else? If the answer is #3, can one of the current other officers be elected to the Vice Presidency, thus vacating their current office office? The By-Laws state: "The principal officers of the corporation shall be a President, a Vice-President, a Secretary, a Treasurer, all of whom shall be elected by and from the Board of Directors." "The principal officers of the Corporation shall be elected annually by the Board of Directors at the Organizational Meeting of the Board and shall hold office at the pleasure of the Board."
  2. It may be obvious but I’m looking for something to support challenging the following. Our Association will hold the Annual Homeowners Meeting very soon. A current Board member is up for re-election at this meeting. However, this same Board member has been going to homeowners to solicit their Proxy forms. These Proxies will be given to the Association Secretary and she will cast votes for this Board member to be re-elected. To complicate this further, there is someone else who will be running however, the individuals who have already gave their Proxy don’t know this. I’m looking for recommendations on how to challenge this inappropriate activity.
