How many days required to "warn" a nonprofit annual meeting?

Recommended Posts

Is there a rule about the length of time needed previous to the annual meeting of a non-profit organization?
Thank you,

Gina L.

Your bylaws probably contain a definition of what constitutes sufficient prior notice of a meeting.   If the date of the annual meeting is specified in the bylaws, it may be that notice is not required at all, 

In general, if a particular number of days is not specified, RONR states that when prior notice is required it must be a "reasonable" time in advance. Yes, that's open to interpretation, and the membership has the power to interpret it.

Also, many states have adopted a "Non-Profit Act" that establishes minimum notice, quorums, etc. for organizations whose bylaws are silent. You can usually access your state's code from its Secretary of State's website.

Thank you for your replies.
I will bring it up at our meeting and make sure we have something more specific than what we have now, which is nothing.

I would say about one year is right.
