Not unless your bylaws give him that unusual authority. RONR doesn't. But any member can raise a Point of Order if he thinks a rule has been broken.

Just one more question- if point of order was not done at the meeting becuase all information was not there, is it still valid

It depends on the particular circumstances. Most points of order must be raised at the time of the infractions. But some infractions are so serious that they constitute what's called a "continuing breach" (of the rules) and there is no time limit for those. For example, if proper notice of a special meeting was not sent to all members, any business conducted at that meeting is null and void.

Can some one interpret this passage please:

"President

Shall preside at all meetings and decide on all questions of order,"

We don't interpret bylaws here but that's pretty much what RONR says too. It's just that the decision (the ruling) of the chair can be appealed and the assembly (the members present) has the final say on what's right.

Usually not, if the board is small--not more than a dozen or so members.
