Appealing a Board decision.

I believe that our Board of Directors has misinterpreted our Bylaws.

Though it's not really up to the board to interpret the bylaws in the first place. That responsibility usually falls first to the presiding officer when he rules on a point of order. His ruling can be appealed and, in the end, it's the membership who gets to say what the bylaws mean.

Needless to say, once you resolve the ambiguity, you should amend the bylaws to clear it up once and for all.

I believe that our Board of Directors has misinterpreted our Bylaws. (The issue is whether or not the Bylaws allow our President to run again - for a second consecutive term.) How and where do I take the issue up on appeal?

The controversy must be settled in the body that has the power to elect the president. If the general membership assembly has the power to elect the president, the executive board exceeds the scope of its authority when it judges the acts of its superior body.
