Sounds like somebody needs to give the Chairperson the answers, even if s/he doesnt really want to hear it.

You´re not going to get back the person who left, but you need to ensure that this doesn´t keep happening. Somebody definitely needs to speak to the Chairperson, probably away from the formal meeting. Be prepared for the possibility that the Chairperson will resign in a huff too!

Then sit down and agree a simple code of conduct for how you are going to operate. Write down some principles about respect for other people. The school probably has a good code for your children, but sometimes the adults need reminders too!

Think you may have hit the nail on the head. Thanks for your views.

Many thanks. A second member has gone now and you have the problem that the Chairperson does not understand why and is seeking answers for them leaving! Effectively committee is dead but Chair wants to run alone. Interesting times.

Our secretary has resigned after a heated exchange with the chairperson. No-one is happy with how the chairperson spoke and dealt with the secretary who is a serious loss to the association. What do we do now?

A little power is a very dangerous thing. Sounds like the chairperson of the P.A. may be on a power trip. I may be wrong, as I don´t know the circumstances fully but that´s what it sounds like.
