My friend is a secretary on a non-profit board of directors.

My friend is a secretary on a non-profit board of directors. In the last two years she has had three strokes and although she still has mental capacity, she is slower and has lost partial physical capacity. Due to her disability, she is no longer able to transcribe meeting minutes in the timely fashion she used to. I was advised by a nonprofit advocacy group that she is entitled to have an assistant, not only to help her transcribe recordings of meetings, but also to attend meetings with her in a non-participatory strictly assistive capacity. The current president of the board is in the midst of trying to remove several board members, and he has told my friend that if she cannot transcribe the minutes herself she needs to be replaced as secretary. She was also told that she could not select her assistant - that the board had to approve that selection. Can you shed any light on any of this? I feel she is being discriminated against because of her disability and her age.

I am the former CEO of a nonprofit corporation. The

I am the former CEO of a nonprofit corporation. The corporation is involved in a lawsuit where I am personally named as a defendant as well in a separate docket number. Fast forwarding to post-trial and entering of the judgement, the board chairman somehow talked to a personal acquaintance of his that practices family law in a state different from the state where the aforementioned case was adjudicated.This lawyer told the board member that the case could be dismissed because she believed the notices had not been properly delivered, but she never talked to me, the person to whom the notices were actually delivered. Never mind that we were well past the deadline for appeal as stated in both states' rules of civil procedure, and never mind that this lawyer is not licensed in the state where the case was heard, and that this particular area of law is outside of her normal practice area.In short this lawyer was able to collect some fees by telling the board chair that she could do something that she knew she could not do, i.e., she preyed upon the board chair's desperation and naivete. She admitted to me that the only reason she took the case was that she was able to bill the corporation for a trip to the city where here grand kids are located, thus she used the corporation for pecuniary gain.Is this grounds for a complaint to the state bar ethics commission.

I recently started my own social science research company.

I recently started my own social science research company. So far, it is just me. I have recently been registered with SAM and have a CAGE number, so I can bid on contracts, apply for grants, and do business with the federal government. This process takes awhile, and most researchers either work for an agency with this access, or if they are alone, they are very limited to individual grant postings. My proposed business model is to invite other research scientists to work with me, and use my SAM and Grants.gov access. I add them as authorized users to my SAM and Grants.gov accounts, and they in turn share a percentage of their grants with my company.My question is, is this legal? Can I contract with other researchers, allow them to use my access, and contract for a percentage of their awarded funds? What would such a legal contract look like? Would I need a business lawyer to write such contracts?

Looking advise. I was the treasurer of our non-profit land

hi - looking for some advise. I was the treasurer of our non-profit land association from 9/2009 to 4/2013. I admit that my concentration was lax here and I didn't do all the things that people seemed to want from this voluntary position. There were a few times where I accidentally cut a check against this account for personal reasons and then when I saw it on next statement, I immediately returned the funds. This was a 0% interest checking account. For some reason, the current Board is making a big deal of these things in the Board meetings with the residents (I have since moved out of development) and I told them if there were any funds missing, then it was a mistake and I'll return any funds - but they refuse to discuss matter with me. They have yearly meetings and keep saying that there are issues, but I have never heard anything directly. I would like to move back into area, but others say that my name is ***** ***** now. I guess the question is "how long can they keep smearing my name and how long until they can bring up things from over 3 years ago - which is when I resigned"? Thanks
