Removal of officer question

Recommended Posts

If a president needs to be removed, does it have to be on the agenda,, or can it be anytime?

That depends on whether the Bylaws require the President (and members) be given previous notice of the intent to remove him or if they are allowed to just spring it on him.

Bylaws do not mention notice.

“Any officer elected or appointed by the board of directors may be removed by a majority of the board of directors, whenever in their judgment the best interest of the association would be served thereby, but such removal shall be without prejudice to the contract rights, if any, of the officer so removed.”

There is no mention under the description of the office of president in the bylaws of any “contract rights”

Can anyone elaborate on what “contract rights” are, in this context?

RONR doesn't address "contract rights" or what they are.  I would suggest you ask someone who has been in the organization for a while what they know about it.

Setting aside the part about the contract rights, it seems to me that no other part of this rule requires notice or for the removal to be included on the agenda.

I haven’t the slightest idea. I would suggest consulting an attorney, as this is legal language.
