Hi, I have a question regarding the BOD and some new issues with them. They are appointing a new BOD as of June 1st. However, they sent the owners of the clinic the BOD minutes from the meeting. In it they stated that they want to be paid $300.00 each for their time, mileage, etc for the time they were on the board. They said in the minutes that is was to be paid by May 30th. Don't they need to have some kind of invoice or something? My understanding is these are just minutes of the meeting and not a formal request for payment. This is a 501c3 corp and I would think that it is inappropiate to think she would just send them checks without some kind of bill. Should she just ask for an invoice or wait until the new board takes over. Please advise. Thank, Diane Mork
If the bylaws state that they are in charge of all monies that come into the clinic, and have the right to disperse such funds.Does this count? Or do the bylaws have to specifically say that the board can be compensated for their time and effort. Does it have to be stated either in AOI or the Bylaws. Thanks, diane
If the clinic does not pay them on the 30th of May, is their any trouble that she (the clinic) can get into? If the current BOD refuses to give her an updated copy of the bylaws, can she withold payment until she gets an updated copy of AOI and Bylaws? Would she be better off just waiting the two days until the new board takes over on the 1st of June, at that ime the new board will have the updated copies of all current business.
