Question: PTO Elections

Our PTO does not have bylaws, a question recently came up about elections. In the past we have always filled positions from within or spoke to friends that were interested and have never had elections so we do not have a protocol. This year there are several outgoing board members and several current members that would like to change positions. Can we offer only open positions to new members or do we need to have elections for each position?
