How To Run A Meeting


Does a person nominated for president have to resign his position on the board?

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.

Our organization has a constitution and operates under Roberts rules. The situation is a Director of the board has filed his nomination for presidency within the organization. There is a 30 day close of nomination. Because he is officially running and campaigning for the presidency does he have to resign his seat as a director.

Dear Wanda,
No he does not unless your bylaws require him to do so. If he is not elected, as president he will stay in his current position. If he is elected, then his current position will be vacant. The organization will then fill the vacancy according to your bylaws.
