Recommended Posts

There is a non-profit that has an auxiliary board. The auxiliary exist to serve the hospitality needs of the non-profit. We don’t fund raise and the income used for expenses comes from the dues the members pay. 

There has continuously been one individual who happens to be a paid staff member of the non-profit that has sat on the auxiliary board for numerous years. 
 

Is it a conflict for this paid staff member to sit on the auxiliary board?  This person has influenced and voted for things that benefit the non-profit money wise.

No rule in RONR would prevent it.

RONR suggests that members "should" (but cannot be compelled to) abstain on matters in which they have a personal or pecuniary interest not in common with other members.  Matters that benefit the entire organization in general would appear to me to be in the common interest.
