We'd say yes to both questions. Not sure you have time to modify your bylaws, get the changes approved and has this person run as president again, but give it a shot.When's your next meeting? Get word out about mending the bylaws immediately. Lots of groups have worked more flexibilty into their bylaws for this reason.

Our PTC is planning to amend the bylaws to state "a maximum of x years, unless there are no other candidates." Even without specific wording in th ebylaws, though, the executive board has the authority to appoint vacancies, so they may re-appoint you, but must document the reason in minutes.
