Our Board has just denied a S/H the right to have a proxy represent him at the S/H meeting. This right of a S/H is covered in our By-laws, and in our 20 year history -- we have always alowed proxy's.
This S/H cannot attend, and has been very vocal on a position strongly opposed by four board members. Two B/M objected and pointed out the law and legal def of a proxy --but they have been ignored.
The By-Laws are a Coops Constitution and is set in place to protect the S/H, and can only be altered by a vote from the S/H.
We know about getting the S/H to vote, but we need more backing. Any advice as to where to turn? A/Gs office? Any contact names.
Thank you,,, Alice
