Our recreational softball league began with an election but since then the board has become secretive. Recently we have heard that they are using League funds for food and alcohol purchases, amended by-laws that we as members have never seen, appointed themselves for three-year terms and will be appointing two persons to fill vacancies. My questions are: 1. Are financials required to be made public in a 501(c)(3)? 2. Can they fix the board positions? 3. Can they appoint directors? 4. Can League funds be used for food and alcohol?
