Hello, I am a fairly new member to our nonprofit's Board of Directors and, I have to admit, know very little yet of the rules and procedures. We recently had several members including the Chairman suddenly resign. I am wondering if there is a special protocol to accept resignation from the Chairman? Also all the resigning members have done so through Facebook Messenger which has been our main mode of communication. Is this sufficient as a resignation? The remaining board members met for our monthly meeting last night and voted unanimously to accept the resignations and also voted in a new Chairman. I am drafting the resignation acceptance letter and plan to have an extra copy for them to sign and send back for our records or do we need to request they send us signed resignation letters themselves? Any other thoughts on this situation would be greatly appreciated.
When a board member submits a letter of resignation can the remaining board members refuse to accept it by "not seconding" a motion to acknowledge? For that matter, does " to acknowledge" require a motion and a second? I thought resignations were simply acknowledged ( not voted on) followed by a statement of acceptance in the minutes. Any clarity would be greatly appreciated.
