Question: Adding board member positions

We have our 'executive' board which are voting members. We also have a few chair person positions, that are not voting board members. After the start of the school year, can we simply vote by email (to the executive board) to add someone from a chair position to a board member?

Your board positions should be spelled out in your bylaws. In order to add a new (voting) board member, you would need to have the approval of your membership. Typically that takes a two-thirds vote at a general meeting (although your bylaws may spell out a different procedure for amendments).
