  1. Several years back, allegheny county (pa) enacted clean air laws for bars, restaurants and clubs. Certain establishments were eligible for exemption from this, however paperwork had to be filed with the county indicating intent. Our club members chose to remain smoking, the board voted and the paperwork was filed. The current board has decided to overturn this decision to the dismay of many regular members. Is this allowed? Can one board overturn another boards decision? One which will surely effect the club financially? Several members have already indicated they will not come down anymore and will be asking for a refund of their dues? The members have started a petition, to which some of the board said is illegal? Can this be right? Please...any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
  2. I am seeking clarification regarding the "Authority" section of our by laws. They read as follows... Except as in herein otherwise specifically provided, the decision of the Board in all Associations matters shall be final, subject only to an appeal to the Association. The Board shall have general control over all officers and committees and may, for good cause, declare an office vacant. it shall constitute a Board of Appeal form the rulings of all officers and actions of committees. Appeal may be taken from any decision of the Bard to the Association. On such appeal the decision appealed from shall be reversed only by two-thirds vote of the members present, at the regular meeting specified by the Board, a quorum being present, notice of such appeal having been given by the secretary to all members of the Association at least fifteen (15) days previous to such meeting. Does this mean that any Board decision can be challenged by filing an appeal? At the regular meeting where the appeal is to be discussed/voted on, can it be reversed based on the vote of any qualifying association members, and not just the Board? Providing the other criteria mentioned above have been met. Thank you.
