All Should be considered board members

Recommended Posts

We have a community asso. And it's directed by 15 members. We have a resident that wants all 700 homes to have the right to make motions and vote on issues. It seems this would not be practical. How would we ever get people to volunteer to do all the work if any one can make motions and vote? Does this seem practical to anyone?

At a meeting of the members of the association, all members have the right to make motions and vote. This does not make all members board members.

Don't let the tail (the board) wag the dog (the association).

What's the fundamental problem with all members being the board? For argument's sake.

 

If the board consists of all the members (of the association) there's no reason to have a board.

 

An association creates a board so it (the board) can act on behalf of the association between meetings (sometimes only once a year) of the general membership.

 

An association with 700 members will probably benefit from having a board.

 

An association with 7 members will probably have no need for a board.
