Non Profit Board Member Resignation


2019 COB

Recommended Posts

Between board meetings, we have had 3 members of our board resign due to conflicts on the board.  As a nonprofit, what is the process that needs to be done if they have submitted their resignations via email and will not be at the next meeting?  A few are asking to see the emails.  I am under the impression that we just need to make the resignations noted on the minutes and the board acknowledge them.  We do not have anything in our bylaws on how to handle this situation.  Thank you for your prompt assistance.

Until the resignations are accepted, those three are still members, which may cause you problems in obtaining a quorum for the next meeting. 

The rule in RONR is that the entity that is authorized to fill the vacancies created by accepting these resignations is the entity authorized to accept them, absent some special rule.  If the board is empowered per the bylaws to conduct the normal business of the organization between meetings of the general membership, that would include the power to fill vacancies.
