We are a 501c3 what to do when no one want to run for office and the bylaw said you can only be in that position not more for two years

Hi Mary,
What a terrible position to be in! You are no doubt incorporated in some state under the nonprofit code. Find your incorporation papers and see what code that is. Then go hunting. The non profit code in Washington state says that the officer serves until a successor is qualified and elected. Your bylaws may state something like that too--or until a successor is elected. If no one wants to come forward, then the current officers stay in those positions until you can get someone else to serve or the organization goes defunct. Usually when this happens in organizations it means that officers are not working with other members to encourage and train them to take leadership positions.

Cheerio!
