Appointing Directors to fill unexpired terms


Guest Guest Joan

Recommended Posts

A Director has recently resigned leaving two years of his term incomplete. Another Director who is filling out 4 more months of another unexpired term has asked to be appointed to the balance of the two year term. Can we appoint him to this freshly available term and appoint someone new to fill the 4 month term balance?

Question please...  if a board has majority ruled to terminate its president and secretary due to not being in good standing w/in the club (yearly dues not paid and they were given ample reminders and time well past the lapsing date to do so and still they didn't comply) , the VP will automatically fill in as President but doesn't want it....She wants to remain VP.   Can these two positions be appointed to to fill out the year or does the general membership need to vote on this and it handled like it normally is w/ annual elections?   Thank you~

It's not entirely clear to me that this was done properly. The board does not have the authority to remove the President and Secretary unless the bylaws so provide, members do not automatically lose good standing by failing to pay their dues unless the bylaws so provide, and being a member in good standing of the club is not a requirement for service on the board unless the bylaws so provide.

When there is a vacancy in the office of President, the Vice President automatically becomes President, whether she wants to or not, unless the bylaws explicitly provide otherwise.

 

Vacancies may be filled by the board if the bylaws so provide or if the bylaws provide that the board has "full authority" over the society's affairs between meetings of the membership. Otherwise, the membership would need to fill vacancies.
