When I was reading German law on non-profits, my impression was the
By-Laws had to specify how members of the board of directors, and any
advisory board were selected, and mid-term replacements done.

I don't see anything in the by-laws that specifies how mid-term
replacements are done. Is that not legally required?

(Whilst German, especially philosophical German tends to be convulated,
German legalese is both convulated, and incomprehensible. At one point
in time, German lawyers must have been paid by the character.)

- From experience in non-profits in the united states, the less
non-legally required stuff in the by-laws, the easier it is to run the
organization. Likewise, the fewer changes made to the by-laws after
incorporation, the easier it is to run the organization.
