This is a religious organization, a local church. Pastor and wife are the 2 resignees. Church embers will elect people to fill board of directors’ vacancies.

If the president and vice president of the charitable corporation resigned last week and you want to know how long do you have to wait to call a special meeting to vote on new officers, I suggest that you carefully read the approved bylaws of this corporation for your answer.

The presumed approved bylaws set forth the way this corporation operates with respect to officers, members and its board of directors. If you cannot locate the bylaws for this corporation, then your answer would be determined by your state's statute on the subject. If you cannot locate the bylaws, I suggest that you consult with an attorney who practices corporation law to assist you.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
