Organisations, including synagogues, are set up by people with common interests or concerns.

As such organisations develop, they need to provide for their future leadership.

Are there sources that require that members vote to provide the leadership of the organisation?

Another way would be for the original founding committee to appoint the new leadership.

    @GershonGold .. but is there a system with more inherent value? Churchill said, "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time." (from a House of Commons speech on Nov. 11, 1947) – Avrohom Yitzchok Dec 2 '12 at 16:59
