It the bylaws say that someone may be removed from a position at any time, that individual may be removed from a position at any time.

Can an appointed member be removed from office at any time, if it is specifically outlined in the bylaws?

 

Can you give u a bit more information?  Are you referring to an officer, committee member, or what?  Also, how was this member appointed?  By one person, such as the president?  By the board?  By the membership?  What exactly to the bylaws say about removal?   Or do they only mention the appointment process? 

We need more information in order to properly answer your question.

I don't quite understand what is meant by "if it is specifically outlined in the bylaws." If the removal is "specifically outlined in the bylaws," then it would seem you already have the answer to your question.

Perhaps what is meant, however, is simply that the appointed member is "specifically outlined in the bylaws," but that the bylaws are silent regarding removal. In such a case, the situation is a bit more complicated, and depends on such factors as how and by whom the member was appointed, whether the position is considered to be an "officer," and if it is considered to be an officer, how exactly the term of office is defined.

This is purely a hypothetical, as legislation would need to be written to make this possible within our bylaws; but currently, the board wants to appoint a president for a short period of time, and I am wondering how to write legislation (if possible) to allow for a temporary appointment.

Let's start with how your President is appointed, and how long of a term the President serves, under the bylaws as they are currently written and go from there.

And what is all this reference to "legislation?" Is this organization a state or local government of some kind? If so, there may also be relevant applicable laws to consider.
