How to replace a president who's resigned mid-term

Recommended Posts

Guest Ms Du

President of nonprofit member organization (board term 7/1/16 - 6/30/18) resigned March 2017.  Bylaws do not state how to replace president mid-term. Current VPs have declined the position. Do we solicit nominations and put forth a ballot to the membership?

Robert's Rules of Order specifies that the VP instantly and automatically becomes P upon the sitting president's vacating the office.

***

If your VP cannot serve as P, then you next step is to hold a by-election (an in-between election) to fill the vacancy.

The rule is, "The body who did the original electing of a given office is the body who is authorized to fill vacancies in that given office."
