If the bylaws
are silent, the president by their inherent authority of the office has powers to appoint such a committee to elect boardmembers. If there is an existing board, they havr right to govern the entity and since the bylaws state all she can appoint are standing committees, then the board has grounds to seek to stop this nomination committee as not in accordance with the bylaws and the board needs to pass a resolution to do so. The issue is that at some point the board is going to have to sit down and get a new set of bylaws drafted and approved as well. The board is going to have to make a legal challenge in court for a declaratory judgment against her attempt at appointing the nominating committee and the court is going to have to rule.
