Newsletter or newspaper

3 posts in this topic

Our association has a newsletter that is paid for out of  our treasurer. There is currently a dispute between the person who assembles and distributes and the president of our board. The president feels that he should have the opportunity to change, add or delete an article. The person who puts the publication together feels that he should be able to write what he wants with no interference from the board or president. The president also feels that the board should have a say over the deadline for submission.

RONR doesn't address this specific situation, but the association can certainly decide on the rules for how its newsletter is run.  Who authorized the newsletter and its expenses in the first place?  Who appointed the person who puts it together?  Who sets the deadline now?  Specifically, was it the association (in general assembly), or the board?  

Look up in the appropriate minutes for any motions regarding this newsletter, and see if there were any restrictions or powers established at the time.   If you like them, follow them. If you don't like them, follow them until you can change them.  If there aren't any, establish some.
