The only Negro on the panel
Folks just need to know that when the local chapter of the NAACP goes out in the community and starts advocating for stuff they must follow a National protocol. As members, it is up to us to hold the leadership accountable.
So as you can see in the Bylaws (page 7), leadership must get approval from the national office before they run up in front of the cameras and start making speeches and pontificating. That’s a good check on egotistic leaders. This is particularly true when they try to endorse or infer support for a politician.
Secondly, all major actions should be approved by the general membership as referred by the Executive Committee. This might be a less effective check since the President will most likely select a rubber stamp Executive Committee.
I can provide the complete Constitution and Bylaws if you send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
