Customer Question

I am a director, founder and trustee of a none profit charity.
There are 3 directors who are trustees including myself and a trustee.
One of the directors is also treasurer.

I suspect due to some recent developments that I am being gradually pushed out of the organisation.
Something I do not want as I have worked hard to build and wish to remain.

Can I be voted out of the charity ?
I am not aware of any governing document. At least it has never been sent to me.
We do however have articles of incorporation under the charities act as one would expect.

Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return.

Alex Watts :

What does your constitution say about voting out a Director or Trustee please?
