Can an organization's executive board vote in 2 co-chairmen of a standing committee? 

The bylaws say there will be "a chairman" of each standing committee.  ----Note: I don't see how 2 people could preside, but that's not the initial question.


You cannot elect a committee to a single office or single position.

You can have rotating chairmenships. You can have a chair and vice-chair. You can have deputy chairs. But you cannot have two or three or four co-equal people for a single position.

If you were to do such a thing, it is undefined as far as Robert's Rules goes. No one will know who has the authority to (a.) call meetings: (b.) run the meeting; (c.) present the committee report; etc.
