Suspending a Bylaw

Guest Ann

Recommended Posts

We have bylaws that address the qualifications for appointed officers and chairpersons. The president of the organization wants to appoint members who are not eligible to fill vacancies for 2020. Can he appoint ineligible members? Can the bylaw be suspended with a 2/3rds vote?

Thanking you in advance for your input.

No. Qualifications for office cannot be waived or suspended. Neither can bylaws except when a bylaw provision provides for its own suspension or if the bylaw provision is in the nature of a rule of order. The bylaw provisions you referred to are not in the nature of rules of order and cannot be suspended.
