At a recent board meeting, our club president removed from the board meeting and censured the club secretary after repeated points of orders. The club president called for a penalty and made a motion of a 30 day suspension of the secretary. The vote passed 4 to 2. Now the president is stating that because of the 30 day suspension, the current secretary is removed from the position as well as any other position currently held. the president is also instructing the secretary to deliver all records of the club to himself. The president feels that the current club secretary can be removed from the position because the 30 day suspension defines the secretary as a member "not in good standing"' According to our bylaws. it states that under Article 3 Directors and officers , Section 1 Board of Directors "all of whom shall be members in good standing for at least two (2) years proceeding their nomination and who reside in the United States". Can our club president proceed with these actions in a legal manner. Their are 7 members of our board of directors with three of the members of the board voting with the club president against the secretary as this has become a personal issue with these board members. Without the votes of the board of directors, how can we stop an action which we feel is unjust and not in the bylaws. Is their a legal authority to contact when a board is acting out of the realm of the current bylaws? AS a club member and officer of the club, are their any actions or steps to taken that can help? our club is incorporated in the state of New York. Is their any legal ramifications or concerns that should be addressed? Help is needed Should we contact a parliamentarian and how and/or where? .And would this even make a difference?
