This isn't the exact same thing, but close!

 

My Sim (and I) started a Singles club with the requirement that members be Young Adults and Single, because he was looking for a spouse.  We then added random townies that were, you know, YA and Single.  Well, he found a spouse because of the club and married! so he was removed from the club because he no longer meets the requirements, but is still considered the leader. 

 

He does NOT have the Leader of the Pack trait, and my Sim in a different save did something similar and was removed properly and a new leader chosen, so... *shrug*?

 

When his cousin wanted to use the club to meet a spouse we couldn't kick out the noncommittal or hates children townies (lol!) to make room for members more suitable to his needs because the club is leaderless, so we abandoned it and started a new one.

Here is how I have dealt with club leaders aging out but remaining leader:

Perform 'praise club leader' to a club member to find out who the leader sim is. Ensure that that leader lives in the world, and then go visit them with the sim you want to become leader. Become friends. The 'ask to step down as leader' interaction became available, even though the leader is not listed as a member in the club window. The old leader refused to step down when they were just acquaintances with the new leader, but accepted when they were friends, and the new leader was able to take over and start managing the club as normal.

@Authorgirl2this only works if the current leader doesn't have the "natural leader" trait, or if they do then the sim you send to take over needs to have it too, otherwise the game won't let you dethrone the old leader. But when the current leader is dead the only way to fix it is with mods, which sucks for the console peeps.

 

EDIT: Natural leader is an aspiration trait that you can only get (without cheating) by becoming the leader of a club.

@TheSteelRodent "EDIT: I found a save old enough that my club leader was still alive, but still too old to be a member. It correctly shows her as not a member of the club and that she doesn't qualify, but it still considers her the leader and shows no other leader. I can also still access the club settings with her and have the option to kick members out, BUT as soon as I click the checkmark to close the window, the game locks up with the spinning load/save circle in the middle of the screen."

This is exactly what I get! Xbox One

I've been having the same issue with any age restricted club 

 

Specifically the pre made children only club, Edla Bjergsten is young adult now and still leader. I had my sim kid as her to step down but she got all offended saying it's her club. In the same save some adults ate in powerhouse, thay one has been updating leaders after they passed no issue. So I assume its related to age requirements being bugged

Could have sworn I replied to this but cant see it huh

If they die it gets re assigned for me (unless there was an age limit, had Elsa die before and still be leader but other clubs leaders change)

Running into that with the League of Adventurers & any own club for children i make. I had an occult kids club and my teen couldn't even resign from it so i had to delete the club and re-make it with an npc.

Also tried asking Elsa to step down in a save where shes an adult countless times but she gets offended bc it's her club Edit: I can now see my other reply, so see this as an addition about aged up leaders being unable to quit
