Absense of Officers

What happens if no member wants to run for or be an member of the board. Can a person hold 2 board positions to keep the organization running? We have many members but many want to be 'just members' and not hold any office. they by-laws just state the officers positions and duties, but nothing about the absense of officers, or them doing double duty.

RONR does not prohibit a person from serving in multiple offices. However, depending on how your board is set up, electing a member to multiple positions on the board may be impossible.

The organization can continue running even if there are occasional vacancies on the board (or in other offices). You might want to consider amending your bylaws to reduce the size of the board (or eliminate it altogether). All you really need is a president and secretary.
