Can the President set meeting dates without a committee vote?
Can the President give orders to members without a vote being taken for it's approval?

Hi Anthony,

Here's a question for you: Can a President be a tyrant without a committee vote? Sounds to me you have a President who thinks he is the ruler of the universal (well, maybe not the entire universal, but certainly your organization!) A President is supposed to do only what the bylaws state he can do. And a President does what the members allow him to do. So it sounds like your members better stand up for their rights.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
