CAN A CHAIRMAN DISREGARD THE MEMBERS WHEN ALL THE MEMBERS DECIDED TO GO WITH A CERTAIN COMPANY TO HELP THEM SET UP A MASTER PLAN USE MAP AND CHAIRMAN GOES WITH WHOM HE WANTS

Dear Ken,

I think you know the answer--it is no. Emphatically, absolutely no. The majority rules. The chairman, unless this is an business corporation where the CEO decides what to do, is to carry out he decision of the members. The chairman of a voluntary organization is just to preside and see that the members are able to make motions, discuss them and then vote on them. He is duty bound to carry out their wishes. Why have a meeting and a vote if the chairman can than do whatever he wants. It is time for you to bring this chairman into line with the democratic process.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
