Resignation of President

Recommended Posts

In our homeowners association, the President just resigned. There are two Vice Presidents with the second being the VP of Special Projects. Assuming the other is taking the lead in calling a special meeting, can it be assumed he is now taking the role of President. This is important because he is not the member most would want as President.

Once (and not until) your president's resignation has been formally accepted, the 1st vice-president automatically becomes president, the 2nd vice-president automatically becomes the 1st vice-president, and you have a vacancy to fill in the office of 2nd vice-president. That's the RONR default. Your rules may vary, especially since you appear to have assigned specific roles to each vice-president which might not be easily transferable from one to the other.

But the president's resignation can only be accepted at a meeting (of whichever body is authorized to accept it) so it would be at that meeting, and not before, that the 1st vice-president would become the president. At which point there might not be any need for a special meeting.

And with the first being what--just Vice President? In other words, there's clearly a reason why you know that the first is First, and the second is Second?

Assuming the other is taking the lead in calling a special meeting, can it be assumed he is now taking the role of President.

If the bylaws grant the president the right to call a special meeting, and if they further grant to the vice president the powers of president in the latter's absence or incapacity, then I think it can be assumed.

This is important because he is not the member most would want as President.

If that's true, then "most" erred badly in electing him Vice President, because as soon as the president's resignation is accepted, the first vice president becomes president, the second vice president becomes the new first vice president, and the society has a vacancy to fill in the office of second vice president.

Let us hope they choose wisely this time.
