Remove or not reappoint Executive position


Recommended Posts

My board has an Executive position that has become defunct due to changes in different services, operational procedures and external relationships that no longer exist. 

Question - there is no language in our Bylaws that states how we remove a position from our Board. Everything we do have is for removing a person within that position. Are we able to not reappoint this position or offer this position in our upcoming Executive Elections?  We would be removing the position from our Board once the current individual in that position has finished their term. 

-If so, would this have to be an item that is first brought to our Bylaw and Policy Committee or our Judicial Committee? 

 

Thank you,

No, it is not proper for the organization to refuse to fill a position which is required in its bylaws.

This may only be done by amending the bylaws.

I am not familiar with the particular job descriptions of your organization's committees, but I would generally assume that amendments to the bylaws would be referred to the Bylaw and Policy Committee.

Note that you don't have to wait for the current individual to finish their term before amending the bylaw. You would just have to adopt the amendment with a motion that states "and this amendment will be effective as of [pick the last date of the term]"
