Corporate President Resigns

Recommended Posts

Our Corporate President of a non profit Volunteer Fire Dept resigned abruptly.  Does the Vice President Finish the term or just fill in until a successor is found?  Our by-laws do not cover this. 
thanks

If the bylaws are silent, the Vice President finishes the term, and there is now a vacancy to fill in the office of Vice President.

"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)
