Bylaw from PROBUS:
If, in the opinion of and after due consideration by the Club’s Management Committee, a member conducts himself/herself in such a manner as to bring discredit to the organization, or he/she causes discord within the membership, he/she may be asked to resign. This request should be made only if, after discussion between the member and the Management Committee, the conflict cannot be resolved.
The discussion never took place, but I am sure the president and past president can find a twist of an explanation.
Too bad the majority got fooled this time also !
