So extreme I'ld rather have a general resolution needed for this.

Can't members propose something as well?

add `in close coordination with the committee leader'

How about adding something like `If a leader leaves the new leader is
appointed by the BOD, after consultation with the leaving leader.' ?

People should volunteer (or can be asked to volunteer) for a committee,
and then a selection should be made. Preferably by the BOD and an
already select committee leader.

I'ld say yes, but give contributing members preference when selecting
members if enough people volunteern

Depends highly on the committee, and as such this probably shouldn't
be in the bylaws.
