We have been told that the President of our Board has no vote. Says who?
Some presidents refrain from voting so that they can stay “above the fray” and appear to conduct meetings evenhandedly. But there is no statute preventing them from voting and a bylaw provision limiting their vote would improperly and imprudently disenfranchise them. They should never be prevented from breaking a tie, or creating a tie so that a motion they oppose does not get enough votes to pass.
