The president of our 501(c)(3) nonprofit is violating by-laws by attempting to treat the organization as his own. He is spending dues and members' money indiscriminately and he has shut down the website where donors and sponsors advertise. He is a founding member and feels it's his club so he can do what he wants. Legal advice: don't report to attorney general, but go to mediation. And use court system as last resort. Is this a good strategy?

I agree that going to court is a last resort, but mediation requires consent of both parties and the president may not be willing. It is certainly worth recommending, however, and may have a better chance if you have others working with you.  —Don Kramer
