Can someone hold two elected offices at the same time?
So little Ben, my question is, " CAN AN INDIVIDUAL HOLD TWO ELECTED OFFICES SIMULTANEOUS"
My goodness does someone not have enough to do in one office that he wants to serve in two? However, that does not answer your question. So, my answer is it all depends. Do your bylaws prohibit such a thing? If they do not, then it may be possible. Often the Secretary and Treasurer are combined. However, it would be absurd for the President and Secretary to be one person because it is not possible to conduct a meeting and take minutes at the same time. One person could not be both the President and Vice President because who would fill in when the President was absent. And you would not want the President to be also the Treasurer because the President and Treasurer often both sign the checks. So the members need to consider this carefully.
The other point is: Do you have enough people to hold these offices and if not why? Or do members not want to serve? It's time to put your thinking caps on and try to figure out the best thing for your organization.
