Board member term expiring

Guest Carol

Recommended Posts

Our Board members are elected at our Annual General Meetings for 3 year terms each June at our AGM. At the end of the terms they can stand for re-election for an additional 3 year term to a maximum of 9 years in total on the Board. Two of our Board members (the Chair and Secretary Treasurer unfortunately) are due for re-election at this year's AGM in June. Unfortunately, due to an emergency at our organization, we need to postpone the AGM until September. The change in timing works for everything except that our bylaws state "At each annual meeting there shall be an election by members of Directors to fill any vacancy on the Board of Directors, which Directors shall hold office for three years."

I wish I had read RONR Chapter XVIII, article IV, because we fear that our bylaw wording could leave us without 2 important directors if their terms expire in June (3 years after their last re-election). Or, is the 'three years' normally viewed as anytime within that year? Would that be viewed as a reasonable way to interpret that phrase in our bylaws?
