definition of "recording"

Recommended Posts

Our State Statute has the following statement:

At its discretion, the board of directors may meet in a meeting not open to unit owners provided the meeting is recorded and the recording is made available to unit owners for up to 30 days upon request.

While not strictly a RONR question, our board is planning on having a board meeting "not open to unit owners". We are debating the terms "recorded" & "recording". Some think that simply providing the minutes would satisfy this requirement. Others think at a minimum, we'd need an audio recording or perhaps even an audio/visual recording.

Minutes would not be available to unit owners upon request within the 30 days. Even without audio or video, minutes are "recorded", are they not?

I would strongly suggest you all talk to someone who is familiar with the Statute in question (a lawyer?) before having that Board meeting because somehow I suspect the minutes alone would not satisfy the Statute's definition of "recording".

This question is beyond the scope of RONR and this forum, and I have no idea what “recorded” or “recording” means in the context of this statute. The board should seek legal counsel if it has questions regarding the meaning of the statute in question.

It is likely that the word is defined elsewhere in the statute, or failing that, a prior case may have decided the issue already.  In either event the answer will not be found within the pages of RONR, and the aid of a legal professional is probably necessary.
