The President of the National Alumni Association of my University has identified a substantive conflict of interest concerning the appointed Parliamentarian who is a member of the association. Since the Parliamentarian is appointed by the President requiring not approval by the Executive Board the President assert that she can unilaterally remove the person from that position. The bylaws are silent on this issue of removing a person from this particular position. Additionally although the position is recognized while in that position the person cannot vote. The position is also not recognized with any specificity of duties in the section of the bylaws for Officers of the Association. The question here then is, can the President who appointed the person then also dismiss or remove the person without conferring with or obtain any additional input, concurrence, or parliamentary action of the Executive Board or association members a a body.
