How To Run A Meeting


What happens when a chairman resigns and there is no vice chairman to take his place?

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.

What do you do if your chairman resigns mid term and you have no vice chairman.
Can your management committee appoint a replacement or do you need to call an EGM to chose and elect a replacement

Dear Nobby,
I do not know what an "EGM" is but here is the fundamental principle that applies to all resignations. First the bylaws should state who fills a vacancy. Second, if the bylaws are silent, the entity that appointed the original chairman is the entity that fills the vacancy.
