As Corporate Secretary (and an Officer) of my Association I am wondering what my authority is when it comes to internal operational issues is in the absence of the President. I understand that I primarily have the role to report to the Board but there is a situation that happened recently that I am concerned with. Without having a hierarchy (decision making power) spelled out out on paper the management team is at a loss when it comes to making decisions in the absence of the President. There has been a serious safety issue in the office and when the President is not here it is unclear who has the power to make decisions that affect the employees and Association. This issue is something that has to be dealt with immediately and cannot wait until the President is back in the office. There is a CFO and management team in-house. It doesn't seem that the CFO wants to use his authority and I feel a certain sense of responsibility, do I have any authority here? Can you help with some clarification? Thank you!
