Any limitations on the number of consecutive terms a director may serve should be spelled out in the bylaws, either as a separate section or as part of the section on the composition of the board.
Example 1: Elected trustees may serve in the same position for no more than four (4) years. In any six (6) year period, no member of the Board of Trustees may serve for more than four (4) consecutive years.
Example 2: Board members shall be eligible to succeed themselves only once. A person who has been appointed to office, or elected to a partial term to fill a vacancy, shall not be considered to have served such term for purposes of determining whether such person is eligible to succeed himself or herself.
Example 3: No member may serve more than two (2) consecutive terms without being off the board for at least one (1) year.
