  1. Thank you all. Josh; by "included in the call" you mean included in the notice stating the purpose of the meeting?
  2. Our Bylaws distinguish between Annual Meetings and Special meetings. Both need to be noticed with time and place but for a special meeting the purpose need to be stated? A. What is meant by "purpose"? B. Does this mean that only motiosn related to the purpose can be discussed and voted? C. Can an extraneous motion such as asking to remove a director be made? (The bylaws only specify a voting percentage but no notice requirements). At a general meeting: D. Is there any motion that cannot be advanced or voted on because it is "not on the agenda" or "has not been noticed"?
  3. Thanks all. At this point, perhaps the most effective interpretation from the point of view of being able to hold our annual meeting soon (as opposed to a special meeting ) would be the following: - The quorum manifestly being present, the meeting was not called to order; - We shall send out a revised time for the annual meeting complying with the notices. In general, which (is supposed to) happen first? The establishment of a quorum or the call to order?
  4. There seems to have been a concentrated number of violations to the rules at the last (aborted) annual meeting of our association (HOA). Here's what happened. The Annual Meeting of our association had been properly noticed (10 days). However, at the time the meeting was supposed to start, it became obvious that a quorum would not be established. The Chair never called the meeting to order (no words to that effect were pronounced by anyone siting at the presiding desk). The President of the Association simply called off the meeting indicating that a new date would be decided upon shortly. Nobody objected and everybody left. Questions: 1. Did the meeting/ session even start? (no call to order) 2. If the meeting is called to order and a lack of quorum is established, can the Chair simply decide to adjourn? 3. If the Assembly had voted to fix the time for the adjournment, would there have been notices requirements? (The Bylaws require 10 days to notice a meeting but nothing is said about noticing an adjournment). 4. Did adjourning the meeting sine die close the session? This was supposed to be our Annual session at which elections were to take place. If the session is closed, what do we call the next meeting (Annual meeting or special meeting) and does it need to be noticed? How do we get out of this mess?
