Jeff Browne will be confirmed as Collingwood's next president after a tumultuous year at the AFL club.
Browne's ticket was elected to the board with Barry Carp and Renee Roberts as the other successful candidates, while Christine Holgate was re-elected.
They are were among 11 candidates in the board election and the results were announced at Thursday night's club annual general meeting.
The board will meet on Friday to confirm the new president, with Mark Korda already confirming he will step down from the post.
Korda, Paul Licuria and Jodie Sizer will remain on the board.
It means Collingwood will have their third president in less than a year, after Eddie McGuire ended his 22-year reign in February and Korda took over.
McGuire stood down after a backlash to his comments about the "Do Better" report into racism at the club.
Korda paid tribute at the AGM to McGuire and long-time Alex Waislitz, who resigned from the board in May.
"It is fair to say they saved the club when it was almost bankrupt, when Eddie and Alex took over. Their legacy is unbelievable," he said.
The election results follow months of in-fighting and intrigue, with threats of board challenges and member-led emergency general meetings.
Korda initially was appointed co-president after McGuire's departure along with Peter Murphy, who decided not to seek re-election.
"Contrary to all the ridiculous stories in the press Peter and I have worked very, very well together during this year and at certain stages there wouldn't be a day go by I didn't talk to Peter," Korda said at the AGM.
Korda added that the Magpies were reviewing the voting eligibility of members, with less than 12,000 out of about 75,000 able to cast ballots on this election.
Collingwood are looking at limits for the board, potentially three terms of three years apiece for directors and two terms of three years for the president.
On the field, the Magpies plummeted out of the top eight and that cost coach Nathan Buckley his job, with Craig McRae taking over the role full-time.
Chief executive Mark Anderson said at the AGM that Buckley was "all class" in how he dealt with his departure.
Collingwood are also yet to decide what to do about star player Jordan De Goey, who remains stood down from the club after a nightclub incident in New York on October 30.
De Goey was charged with assault and faces another court hearing next month.
Rohan Bownds, who was awarded life membership at the AGM, made his feelings clear about the state of the club in his passionate acceptance speech.
"I hope I've treated you all with respect and dignity and I want you to know I got so much back from you all," he said.
"This club has lost so many good people in recent times, so I hope the current management and new board learn from the past and start to treat the current wonderful staff and players with the greatest respect that they all deserve
"(It) was not given to myself and many others, especially over the last two years."
Bownds' 34-year tenure as head trainer ended after this season, while administrator Tracey O'Connor was also awarded life membership as she leaves the club on Friday for a role outside the AFL.
