Vice President of a non profit

Recommended Posts

If the position of Vice President is an elected position in a membership non profit organization, can the president appoint an acting vice president?

No, unless your bylaws say he/she can.

Check you bylaws to see how a vacancy in an office (presumably vice-president in your case) is filled.

If the bylaws don't say, hold a special election to fill the vacancy.

Is this a filling of a vacancy in the office of VP?  If it is, then follow the rules in your bylaws for filling vacancies.  If there are none, and you have a Board that is empowered to conduct the normal business of the society between meetings, then the board (but not the president alone) can fill vacancies.  Failing that, a special election would need to be held.

Unless the bylaws provide otherwise, vacancies are filled for the unexpired remainder of the original term.  The person appointed to the office would hold that title, not an "acting" title.

If this is not a filling of a vacancy, then please provide more information on why the president would attempt to fill an office that is an elected office.
