The following administrative powers were (strangely) included in our 501c3's new/first Bylaws earlier this year. We are a public middle school PTO. Only the 5th/last of these seems reasonable to me. Policies -- Seek input and approval of school administration on all matters. Funding -- Fundraising efforts beyond dues must be approved by administration. Elections of Executive Committee -- Filling mid year vacancies requires administration approval. Special Meetings -- Administration may, on his/her own, call a special meeting. Treasurer Duties
Our by-laws indicate: "Approval of and funding for special projects deemed necessary by the BOD (Board of Directors) must be voted upon and approved at a regularly scheduled membership meeting." Here's what has been happening. We have a construction committee that is managing ongoing construction projects. The Construction Committee brings funding requests to the President. The President appointed a Finance Committee to vote to approve/disapprove funding. Shouldn't the approval of the funding come from the membership (i.e. BOD) rather than just the Finance Committee?
