Can the Board state to the membership that they would like support for either a motion or an amendment with a "Yes" vote or visa versa a "No" vote? It would seem that when the Board recommends a position on a vote it could be considered an abuse of power by using their position on the board to influence voters. My understanding was that the Board was supposed to remain impartial. However, I could see that during the discussion phase of a motion individual Board members could argue for or against a motion. Once the discussion is had a just prior to voting can the Board collectively state they hope that the membership votes a particular way?
