Pro Tem

I'm not gonna look it up right now.  But generally, it's for whatever meeting you're currently in.  And I'm not sure if Robert's Rules says this explicitly, but a vacancy should be filled as soon as your organization can get it done.

Depends on the position and circumstances, I'd think.

 

A pro tem presider is booted off the stage when the real president (or vice-president) shows up and demands the lime-light, or the meeting ends, or the association decides it has had enough of this bozo and tries again with someone else, &c.

 

OTOH, a pro tem secretary might very well serve, in effect, until well after the meeting ends, up to the point he gets those blasted minutes done ("Oh, why did they talk so much...?") and sends them off to the official secretary.  (He shouldn't be transcribing all that "talk" in the first place, of course.)
