What do you do when the last board member does not want to fill vacancies 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.

My churches board of directors have all left the church several years ago. There's only one person left that's in the board of directors. What can we do to add members to our board when the last member refuses to allow anyone else in?

Dear Joe,
My first reaction was "oh my gosh, I can't believe what I am reading!" I also can't believe that the members of this church has let this go on so long. Surely you are incorporated in the state where you are located. Surely you have bylaws that state that you must elect directors every year. If you are incorporated and most churches are, you must follow your bylaws and elect new directors whether this remaining director likes it or not. There is usually a provision in the state codes for removal of directors. Perhaps the time has come to remove this director from office and elect others that will follow the bylaws and work together for good. In I Corinthians 12, Paul rebukes those church members who do not respect the other members of the body. He says the body cannot all be an eye or an ear. Each member of the body is necessary and needed. Perhaps your pastor needs a preach a sermon on this one.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
