Can a president refuse to fill a vacancy?
We have a 7 member board of directors in an HOA. Our secretary member resigned but the board did not replace that member. The resignation was 6 months prior to our annual meeting. It says in our bylaws that we shall appoint another member to replace but the president chose not to do so. Is the president being derelict in that duty?
My gosh. Who is taking the minutes and doing the secretary's duties? It just can't be left undone! So I would say whoever is the lucky person doing that work is the secretary. If it is the president, that is not allowed. Go to a board meeting and just ask, "what's going on here?" Maybe they just need someone to volunteer.
