Probably not, but we need to know what your bylaws say about elections, terms of office, etc.  You would normally take nominations from the floor if the nominating committee doesn't nominate someone for a position.  If there are still no nominations, someone can still be elected by means of write in votes.  A vote of 1 to 0 with 15 abstentions is still a majority vote and the person with one vote is elected.  He can decline to serve, but chances are, if he is elected, he will agree to serve. 

If it is true that nobody is willing to serve, it may be time to disband the organization.

If you will tell us more about what the situation is, we might be able to help you better. There is a chance the board could fill vacancies, but it depends on your bylaws.

You might also tell us what your bylaws say about elections,  terms of office and filling vacancies.  Please quote those provisions verbatim, don't paraphrase.  And be sure to quote any provision about officers serving until their successors are elected.

Or perhaps just amend the bylaws to eliminate the position if that position could conceivably be set aside without negative consequences. And do not forget Mr. Brown's other questions.

If no candidate can be found before the election, how will a candidate be found afterward?  

Get the person you were going to appoint, and convince them to stand for election.
