  1. 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
