Does a Vice President have a right to refuse automatically becoming President when a President resigns?

Dear Cra,
It depends on what your bylaws state. If it states that the Vice President will fill the vacancy, then that person is expected to fill the position. It sounds like you have an awkward situation here. Sometimes people have their lives planned so that they cannot take the position at the current time. If the person is so adamant that they will not take it and will resign if put into that position, then you may have to be creative. You know your organization and the people dynamics. I recommend that everyone get together including the Vice President and see what you can work out. Maybe the Vice President needs help to fill the position. Talking things out is always a good way to approach things.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
