Our HOA community elects directors to the board, and the board elects its officers. Our bylaws do not state specifically what happens when the President resigns. Our President recently resigned, and the Vice President has stepped into the position. Should we elect new officers at our next regular meeting, or does she automatically become president permanently?  We have board elections each year at our annual membership meeting (directors are elected for 3-year terms) and typically we vote for new officers at that time, but our current situation is a little different because we are short 3 of 7 board positions.  We are appointing 3 new directors at the next regular meeting (board has authority to appoint directors in the interim). Should we elect new officers at that time, as well? I can't find this specifically addressed.

Q1.) Should we elect new officers at our next regular meeting, or does she automatically become president permanently?  

We have board elections each year at our annual membership meeting (directors are elected for 3-year terms) and typically we vote for new officers at that time, but our current situation is a little different because we are short 3 of 7 board positions.  

We are appointing 3 new directors at the next regular meeting (board has authority to appoint directors in the interim).

Q2.) Should we elect new officers at that time, as well?

A1.) The board elects your officers. So the board fills all vacancies in officer positions. The board need not wait.

The general membership is not involved.

A2.) If Robert's Rules of Order applies, then the VP instantly and automatically becomes P upon the death or resignation of one's president.

There is no election for P.

However, there is now a vacancy in the position of VP. -- THAT is a vacancy your board fills.

***

The annual meeting has nothing to do other than its normal business - namely, elect directors whose terms are up.
