Does a committee member have to resign his position to be nominated for an office?
If a Management Committee member at a sporting club, with another year to go in tbe position, nominates for the position of club captain for the coming year, does he have resign his present position on Management for tbe coming year? If not & if unsuccessful in the quest for tbe Captaincy does he retain his position as a member on Management?
Usually in a situation like this the Management Committee Member can be nominated for the Captaincy position . If he wins, then the club fills the vacancy in the committee. If he loses, nothing is lost. This is true if your bylaws do not specifically state that this member must resign his position on the committee before being consider for this office.
