Appointed director wants to remain on ballot

Recommended Posts

I have a member who had been on upcoming ballot for director. In the meantime, this person was appointed to fill a vacant slot with a term to expire in two years - so we could have a quorum.

After discussion with my president and VP and a call to a certified RR member, this nominee was removed from the ballot as I was told it couldn't be both ways.

Unless I overlooked, cannot find definitive substantiation in my RR book. 

Was I correct in removing person from ballot?

I don't think so.

I assume that the position this person was running for has a term of more than two years. 

There is no requirement in RONR, as you noted, for a person to resign from one position in order to run for another. If and when this person is elected to this full-term position, they can decide whether to accept that and resign the two-year position.

There is nothing in RONR supporting the position that this person should be removed from the ballot or that he was ineligible to run. It is conceivable there is something in the society’s rules on this subject.
