Thank you for using JustAnswer. The president can act when the actions are within his powers and discretion. Hiring and firing employees, for example, or other day to day situations. These things don't require a vote from the board. But "big picture" matters would. Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable. Please note that I don't get any credit for my answer unless and until you rate it a 3, 4, 5 (good or better). Thank you, ***** ***** luck to you!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
