To the Point

Our nonprofit youth football organization has always made our Board meetings open to the public. At our last meeting, things became quite disruptive when some in attendance became angry and interrupted the flow of our meeting and made it difficult to continue. The next meeting we had was not open to the public. It was only for Board members so that we could accomplish our tasks. Some members of the Board believe that this is an illegal action. Are they right?
