Unless another time is specified in the notice or determined by the Board, an officer’s resignation shall be effective upon receipt by the Board.
• An officer may be removed from office for dishonesty, fraud, and/or misrepresentation in connection with the affairs of the organization, or unwillingness or inability to perform the duties of an officer by a two-thirds vote of the Board (excluding the vote of the affected officer).
• If any office becomes vacant, the Board may appoint a successor to fill the office. In the event the Administrative Director is unable or unwilling to complete the current term of office, the Director of Best Practices shall assume the Administrative Director’s duties and office. In the event the Director of Best Practices is unable or unwilling to fulfill the role of Administrative Director, the Board may vote any other current member of the Board to the position for the remainder of the predecessor’s term.
