President Authority

Good afternoon,

Our chapter president dictates tasks and other policies on a regular basis. I know the presiding officer has the right to set procedures for expedition of meetings, but our president is setting procedures that are contrary to our bylaws and, what I believe to be, RONR. She states that it is within her authority to do so. Additionally, she states that other officers and chairs are subordinate to her and that if we disagree or don't do as we say we are being insubordinate. What authority does a chapter president/presiding officer have over members, officers, and chairs?

 

Thanks!

Not 100% sure what's behind this, but she probably doesn't even have that authority. Ensure that the procedures are followed? Yes. But (arbitrarily/unilaterally) set them? Probably not.
