Recommended Posts

If a newly elected president resigns before the first meeting, the vice president assumes the office, correct?  The old president has no rights to the office, correct?

Yes to both questions, assuming the resignation has been accepted.

“In case of the resignation or death of the president, the vice-president (if there is only one) or the first vice-president (if there are more than one) automatically becomes president for the unexpired term, unless the bylaws expressly provide otherwise for filling a vacancy in the office of president.” (RONR, 11th ed., pg. 458, emphasis in original)
