    Running a club, need info

    A local club rarely has enough show up to form a quorum yet it continues to make decisions. According to Robert's Rules, the only legal authority the president has when this happens is to adjourn the meeting. I'm hoping someone more knowledgeable than me will pipe up.

    You are correct. Without a quorum, no business can actually take place, and any decisions are not binding. The only thing that can be done is to change the requirements for aforum. If that is to be done, all members must be notified well in advance as to the time and date of the meeting where that will be decided.

    Another question. If the club should go financially bust, can anyone be held liable for outstanding debt?

    Of course. Debts aren't forgiven just because the club may be financially insolvent. Whoever signed the contracts will be liable as the club representative.

    Hoping the club is registered as an LLC, as that will protect the responsible parties from having their personal assets taken to repay the debts. Unless they signed a personal guarantee, then all bets are off.
