If a chairman resigns his position on the board can he stay on as a board member?
If a chairman of the board resigns,and that chairman was only voted in by the members of the organization to that position only, can he demand or request to remain as an ordinary director on the board? The current constitution of the organization has separate voting for the chairman, vice chairman, treasurer, and for 4 directors. The constitution allows the board to appoint another member. Also does the board need to go back to the members for another election for the chair position?
Let's take up each question separately. If the bylaws do not tell how to fill the vacancy, then you need to go back to the members to fill the vacancy.
When the chairman resigned, he is no longer a board member. If I understand your constitution, it says that the board can appoint another director, is that correct? Very odd. I suppose if that is true, then the board can appoint him to stay on the board.
