how many years in a row can a president control the board?

Hi Frank,
The answer is zero, zip, none, nada, never. A president does not control. He presides. The bylaws give the president specific duties to perform and that is all he can do. He conducts board meetings but the board members make motions, discuss them and vote on them. According to the bylaws, the president may discuss or not discuss, vote or only vote to break a tie. In any case all board members are equal with him and he has only one vote like the rest. If the board is allowing a president to control them, then shame on them. Get a copy of our book "Robert's Rules of Order Simplified and Applied." It tells what powers he has in parliamentary law and what powers the board has in parliamentary law. You can order this book by going to our bookstore are parli.com.

Cheerio!

Little Ben
