I have a Board of Directions with challenges. They called for  the GM to resign which upset many of the member owners and some BOD members. The President  and the Grounds Committee Chairman resigned last week leaving 7 of the 9 directors. The members have gathered enough signatures to call a special meeting to ask for the entire Board to be removed and the GM to be reinstated. The GM will be in charge until another election can take place to elect another BOD. If the Board refuses to honor the memberships wishes, what is the next step? If 3 of the other members of the BOD resign, leaving only 4 BOD members and it takes 5 to have a quorum, my question is what happens next? With only 4 left, can they conduct any business at all since they don't have a quorum? Is that Board essentially resolved due to the inability to be able to conduct any business? Do the 4 remaining Directors retain their position until another election is held to fill the remaining seats and then they have to pick new officers at that time? Or does the Club start from scratch with elections for a brand new Board?

I suspect that the answers to most of your questions are, at least implicitly, in your bylaws.  And we, here, are not in a position to work through bylaws with our correspondents.  Try this to find someone who might be able to (probably for an appropriate fee):

There is no requirement that the board must honor the membership "requests."  Anyone may REQUEST that certain board members resign but there is no requirement that those board members do so.  They may decide, however, that they have had enough of a few members trying to micromanage the board that their service in that office is not worth the aggravation and resign.  When other members take those board positions, the former board members can micromanage them.
