Nominating Process

Per our bylaws, nominations for executive board positions are in November. In January, actual voting takes place.

Can the current executive board in place between Nov and Jan (before voting takes place) change requirements for office - which are in the bylaws - such that those running against them would become ineligable to hold office and thereby would be disqualified from running? This would assure the current board continuance in office. come voting time in Jan, they'd run unopposed.

Do your bylaws grant the Executive Board the authority to amend the bylaws at all? Generally, such authority is reserved for the general membership.

Yes. The Executive Board is permitted to amend bylaws.

Assuming this is correct (and the next sentence leaves some doubt in my mind), the answer to your original question is yes, although such a strategy seems overly complicated. It would be simpler to just amend the bylaws to provide that the Executive Board elects its own members, and then they can just re-elect themselves.

While everyone was asleep, they gave themselves the power to amend bylaws too.

Please clarify what you mean by this.
