RONR states that nonmembers may be appointed to a committee, "even to the position of committee chairman" (pp., 492-493), but I cannot find any discussion regarding the rights of those members in committee. I understand that nonmembers do not have the right to speak or vote in assembly meetings, but it would seem difficult for a nonmember committee chair to break a vote in committee if he or she does not have the right to vote in committee, even if not in assembly. So, my question is this: if an assembly nonmember is appointed to a committee, to any or no particular position, does that assembly nonmember have the same rights, as a member of that committee, as assembly members who are also members on that committee?
Our Condo Board of Managers meets monthly. The meeting is attended by all board members and also the Board's attorney. The attorney occasionally speaks on issues, legal and non-legal. She does not have voting rights. The by-laws do not specifically provide that the attorney has a right to be there and we have never voted on the matter. I am wondering if RONR provides limitations on this attorney to speak at the meeting. Have we waived any right to exclude or prevent the attorney from speaking? Could they be classified as an Ex Officio member since they are technically appointed by the board? Also, if they could be an Ex Officio member, do they enjoy full speaking rights? Thanks for your Consideration, Pat
