How To Run A Meeeting

If you would like to know more about how Parliamentarian Procedure from Little Ben, click here for my DVD called How To Run A Meeting.

If two of five board members resign (one of whom was the chairman), can the remaining three members elect a new chairman before the two new board members are seated.

Dear Bob,
I am scratching my head on this one. Why doesn't the Vice Chairman take his place? I would think that your bylaws would provide for that to take place. Robert's Rules of Order certainly does. This is what Robert's says, "in the case of a resignation or death of the president, the vice-president (if there is only one) or the firsts 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 president." (that is on page 458 of the 11th edition of the official book.) If this person does not want that position, it would seem expedient to me that you must have someone in charge.

Cheerio!

Little Ben
