Removal of Chair/President

Recommended Posts

Our committee has 3 officers. Two of the officers feel that the President should be removed due to abuse of power. Our bylaws state that to remove a member, 1/3 of the membership must sign a petition and then 2/3 must vote for removal. How does the petition get started? Do we have to bring it up in a meeting or do we do it "secretly"? There aren't any directions on how to start the petition.

Is this in fact a committee as RONR understands the term?  If so, committees do not have the right to remove their own members. They can only make recommendations to the parent body.

I, too, question whether this "committee" is a committee as defined in RONR.  It doesn't sound like it.  Guest Jennifer, can you elaborate on the nature of this "committee"?   Is the committee the organization?  Or is it a committee of an organization?  And this president you speak of, is he or she president of the committee,  the president of the parent organization, or what?
