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.

In a garden club the nominating committee can not find anyone to accept the presidency for the next term. If no one comes forward do the elections proceed, and if so who presides over meetings? The 1st vice president?

Dear Stephen,
At your election meeting the chair should take nominations from the floor for the office for president. Perhaps someone will come forward. If you don't get an election, look in your bylaws, it may state that the current president stays in office until a successor is elected. If you don't have that in your bylaws I highly recommend that you put it in. Then if you can't fill the office someone remains until another is elected. I recommend that you find a parliamentarian to help you with this because he could read your bylaws to see how this is to be solved.

Cheerio,


Little Ben
