Before we get started I would like to provide a brief explanation of how this system works.

In essence, when we are done you will leave a rating for my answer.
I only receive credit for assisting you if you leave a positive rating. The rating only applies to my answer. In some situations I will supply accurate legal information to customers who feel that information is "bad news." Please do not hold me accountable if the information provided was not what you were hoping to hear. We answer questions relying on an honor system with the hope that customers will do the rights thing and provide a positive rating so that we are credited for your work.

Per the site terms, I cannot provide advice. I am only permitted to provide information.

If a board member or president engages in self-dealing behaviors in which they stand to have a personal gain there is recourse available. Such recourse would be a civil suit in court. Sometimes it is possible to garner support in the organization to remove the problem person before damage is inflicted to the entity. The first step is typically to seek out legal representation. Sometimes even a well worded demand letter from an attorney is sufficient to cause the "problem" person to step down from their position.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I hope that you will be so kind as to leave a positive rating. This ensures that I receive credit for assisting you.

Thank you
