Question: Standing board not supportive of an uncontested nominee for next school year

We had several board seats open up and asked the parents to volunteer for positions they are interested in. We ended up with voluntary nominations for all open positions and no positions were contested. The standing board is concerned about one of the nominees. The concerns are mostly around the nominees ability to work well with a range of personalities and committees. Does the sitting board have the right to reject a nomination? Our bylaws do not currently address this situation.

Hi, If your bylaws do not address the situation you should look to Roberts Rule of Law. Best of luck Cheryl PTO Today
