Can two elected members of a board change their positions? For example, can the VP of philanthropy, decide to be parliamentarian & switch roles they were nominated & elected into? Is a motion & vote w/a quorum necessary for this to happen?

Dear Susan,
Anytime people are elected to a specific office they normally serve in that office until the term is expired. Now if people realize that perhaps they would be better in different roles, then it would be up to whoever elected them to decide that. If the board members originally decided that then they can vote on it. If the membership decided it then it would have to be taken back to the members for a vote. Of course, a quorum would be needed to have a meeting and election. I do not know you bylaws. If there is a provision for the board to fill vacancies, both members may be able to resign and then the board appoint them to the other offices. Look carefully at your bylaws to see how this can be solved easily and without any confusion or uproar.

Cheerio,


Little Ben
