Hello!

Do special meetings require a separate agenda?  Thanks in advance.

In calling a special meeting, the call must include a specific description of the items of business to be taken up during the meeting, and no items other than those so described may be taken up.

I'm not sure that such a description rises to the level of being called an agenda, or needs to.  But it must be given.

If nothing is established in the CC&R's, only that they follow Robert's Rules of Order. How many days in advance does a special meeting notice need to be?

If what you mean by “nothing is established” is that there is nothing regarding special meetings whatsoever, then special meetings cannot be called.

If you mean that special meetings are provided for but the rules are silent regarding the amount of notice required, that is unfortunate. RONR merely states that such notice must be sent a reasonable number of days in advance and suggests that each society should specify for itself the amount of notice required. In the absence of such a specification, I suppose the society will need to interpret what constitutes a reasonable number of days in advance for its purposes, until the bylaws can be amended to specify a certain number of days.

For future reference, please post a new question as a new topic, even if there is an existing topic on a similar subject.
