Our not for profit organization bylaws or Constitution doesn't talk about term limitsof trustees. Our Constitution only says every year 4 trustees will be elected for a term of 4 years. 

Recently in our board meeting majority of trustees voted for term limits.Is this resolution binding without incorporating the same resolution i

n bylaws or Constitution?

Thanks

Jay

I agree that enforceable term limits would need to be in the governing documents (Bylaws or Constitution). What might be done (depending on details of your organization) without amending the Bylaws or Constitution might be the Nominating Committee or process, where the Nominating Committee might not "endorse" a trustee for another successive term. What also can work in some organizations is the "honor system", where trustees do not seek or accept successive terms.
