Thank you, this is the applicable law no removal of board members of a NY non-profit:
§ 706. Removal of directors. (a) Except as limited in paragraph (c), any or all of the directors may be removed for cause by vote of the members, or by vote of the directors provided there is a quorum of not less than a majority present at the meeting of directors at which such action is taken. (b) Except as limited in paragraph (c), if the certificate of incorporation or the by-laws so provide, any or all of the directors may be removed without cause by vote of the members. (c) The removal of directors, with or without cause, as provided in paragraphs (a) and (b) is subject to the following: (1) In the case of a corporation
having cumulative voting, no director may be removed when the votes cast against his removal would be sufficient to elect him if voted cumulatively at an election at which the same total number of votes were cast and the entire board, or the entire class of directors of which he is a member, were then being elected; and (2) When by the provisions of the certificate of incorporation or the by-laws the members of any class or group, or the holders of bonds, voting as a class, are entitled to elect one or more directors, any director so elected may be removed only by the applicable vote of the members of that class or group, or the holders of such bonds, voting as a class. (d) An action to procure a judgment removing a director for cause may be brought by the attorney-general or by ten percent of the members whether or not entitled to vote. The court may bar
from re-election any director so removed for a period fixed by the court.
As the law does not afford an applicable remedy for the immediate removal of the board, you have
1. show that unlawful acts have been committed by the board members in question, then have counsel for the board file suit on behalf of the membership in court to have the board members removed by order of the court based upon criminal or unlawful behavior; or
2. an to appeal to the membership at large to recall the board (at large).
Please let me know if this does not answer your questions, or if you have any follow up questions.
