Conflict of Interest

Recommended Posts

Our religious organization is merging with another religious organization.  Our By-Laws allow for members in good standing to attend and have a voice at meetings, both congregational and Board of Trustees.

 

Two of our members, one of which is a Past President (Permanent Board of Trustees position) are now starting a new religious organization.  This creates a conflict of interest going forward.  The question is....can the Past President continue to vote on matters concerning the merging religious organization going forward?  And does RONR address this issue?

 

Thank you for your comments and insights.

"No member should vote on a question in which he has a direct personal or pecuniary interest not common to other members of the organization...However, no member can be compelled to refrain from voting in such circumstances." (RONR p. 407).
