Nominating committee

Our Bylaws state, 

 

No Board member whose position is up for election shall be eligible to serve on the Nominating Committee. 

 

1)We have a VP stating she will not be returning to the board next year, Since she is a present board member who's position is up for election yearly, I would think she cannot serve on the nominating committee. Is this correct.

Then the question raised was if she resigned effective Dec.31,2015 can she serve if her resignation is in before the nominating committee is chosen in Aug. 2015. 

 

2) Our treasurer is going to resign before we seat a nominating committee, can he serve on the committee?

 

3) Our president is termed out at the end of this year and again her position is up for election yearly. Since she is termed out can she serve on the nominating committee?

here is the exact words

 

"No person may be a candidate in a Club election who has not been a member in good standing and has not been nominated in accordance with these bylaws. The Board of Directors shall choose a Nominating Committee by August 31. The committee shall consist of three members from different areas of the U.S.A., and two alternates, all voting members in good standing, no more than one of whom may be a member of the current Board of Directors. No Board member whose position is up for election shall be eligible to serve on the Nominating Committee. The Board shall name a chair of the committee. "

All positions are up for election this year.

 

I'd say that the only persons who can't serve on the nominating committee are those who are currently officers. If they're former officers then it's their former position that "up for election".

 

But, as Mr. Huynh suggested, your bylaws should be amended. For one thing, you don't elect "positions", you elect people. So a person might be "up for re-election" (if he chooses to be a candidate) but the position is "not up for election".
