Previous or Current Bylaws Chair

The bylaws of an organization specifies that the Vice President is the Chair of the Bylaws Committee.  During a recent convention, the Chair of the Bylaws Committee was going to go over the proposed amendments to the organization's bylaws but due to the number of proposals, the membership approved a motion for a special membership meeting within three months to focus on the proposals.  At the close of the convention, new officers were elected including the vice president position.  This means a new Chair of the Bylaws Committee.  The previous Vice President became Treasurer of the organization.

The question is, during the special membership meeting, who will be responsible for the proposed amendments?  The new or previous Chair of the Bylaws Committee?  I am under the impression that the previous chair will because the special membership meeting is the result of the convention before the new officers were elected.

The new chair (who is now the current chair).

The fact that the meeting is the result of a convention held before the election of officers is irrelevant. The person currently in a position is responsible for the duties of the position.
