Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

I am sorry to hear that it sounds like you are in a difficult situation.

Is this a private corporation?

What are the basic facts?

What is your specific question?


Customer: replied 2 months ago.
This private not for profit
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
My baseball club agreed to merge with another both not for profit. It was announced publicly however new information has come to light and my board would like to reverse it. The other club agrees to not merge but we need to know procedural how to reverse it and avoid possible legal recourse
Expert:  Debra replied 2 months ago.

Was this voted on by the membership or just the board.

And could you say the other club refuses to merge or is that not really true?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The vote was just the board. We both came to a mutual agreement that it would be best to not proceed with the merger at this time.
Expert:  Debra replied 2 months ago.

Then the board can just take another vote based on the agreement.

Someone can make a motion and in the motion in a few sentences and explain why the merger is not in the best interests of the club and mention that the other club also agrees and then you just vote on it.

Does that make sense?
