Duties of board of directors

Elaborating on Hieu's answer, the board has only such powers as are granted to it by the bylaws.  If the bylaws grant the board the authority over the affairs of the organization between regular meetings of the membership, for example, then it can probably do so provided the motion is something that the membership could vote on and isn't something reserved to the membership, such as elections. 


Some organizations give the board only limited authority or the authority only to make recommendations.


The answer to your question will be in your bylaws.  See Section 56 of RONR re content and composition of bylaws for more information.  See also Section 49 regarding Boards.
