The board has even placed part of this surplus into certificates of deposit attached to the operating account.
My thought is this money should not have been allowed to accumulate. It should be spent on what it was originally budgeted for. The money should not be allowed to just sit and collect dust, or to grow into an even-larger amount. The board rejects this, and again insists the surplus is evidence of their wise financial management. Can you tell me who is correct?
Many of us are struggling with his leadership, because almost immediately he went into a dictatorial mode. micromanaging every decision made by the subcommittees. He also has strong personal animosity towards certain volunteer members. Sadly, the property manager is no help in mediating this matter.
Can a volunteer committee member be ordered to resign by the president acting alone without the board of directors? Does a decision to oust a volunteer committee member require a quorum vote from the directors? This new president thinks he can order anyone he wants off any committee for whatever minor infraction he fabricates.
It seems impossible that the Florida statutes would allow one person to have this much discretionary power, as this would lend itself to misuse and allow for personal vendettas. If this happens, is there recourse? Where can I get help with this matter?
If the president is taking actions with which the other directors do not agree, the directors can replace him at any board meeting. The president has the authority to manage committees at his will as long as the other directors agree. If you’re not happy with the way that the president is acting, send letter to the board of directors and express your feelings.
