Private education society registered

Querist : Anonymous (Querist) 05 October 2020 This query is : Resolved 
The actively working secretary of the education institution resigns overnight with no valid reason after serving nearing a decade. How to handle the situation, especially during this COVID19. The attitude is self-importance and egoistic attitude. He has not served a notional period for changing to a new secretary, though explicitly nothing has been mentioned in the bye-laws of the education society.

06th October,
My concern is that my father started this institution with two like-minded persons. Now all the three are no more. It has completed almost 47 years without any problem. The organization imparts education at a very nominal fee with a good turnout. I am the advisor as a senior member, and the board members seek my advice except for the secretary who is inconsistent in his stand, who resigned without notice. So, personally do not wish to see unwanted turmoil in this education society. Each of the members is the young generation, though not contributed by their Sevak, Kartha or a donor. They got inherited membership of their parents., and the institution should not dwindle in the process of egoistic attitude. I do not wish an election, instead of a consensus selection or appointment of the President, Secretary and two Vice-Presidents.
After doing this process, is it the right time to amend some improved guidelines in the bye-laws?

Refer the bylaws governing the educational institution.
Let the President initiate to take decision in accordance to the procedure laid down in bylaws.
Meanwhile proceed to elect / select / appoint new secretory as per procedure.
You can not force anyone to work against his wish on the post.

You should not compel him not to resign. It is his will/wish. In such cases, a new Secretary may be elected from General Body. If the GB unable to conduct the meeting during this period, usually, the Joint Secretary will act as Secretary. However, check your bylaws. consult a local lawyer.

The law has no remedy for alleged self importance/ego of an employee.

Either bow before his ego or proceed to appoint new office bearer as per procedure, in fact second would be honorable and dignified way.
