Question: member in good standing

Is it proper to request a ban of individual(s) from PTO activities for a period of time if they have falsely made accusations against the PTO board because they have a personal vendetta against one of the members. The accusations made are very serious and could potentially ruin the reputations of individuals even though the accusations were proven false. We have a meeting this afternoon and wanted to clarify the definition of member in good standing that are in our by laws at this meeting....NEED ADVICE ASAP...Thank you

Your bylaws will give you guidance on this issue. It's a bold step to make and one that could sometimes only escalate a situation. Not knowing the nature of the comments, I can't say what you should or shouldn't do. Sometimes, if nasty remarks are made and it's all talk (no threats), it can be best to just move on. But, again, rely on your bylaws for guidance.

Good luck!
