Do Visitors to an HOA meeting have to sign in with name and address

Are there rules to follow when visitors attend meetings? Do they need to sign in with their name, address, phone, etc., especially when it is anticipated they are going to speak?

There very well could be. They would be customized by and for the local organization, and not contained in RONR.

Since an organization is free to prohibit visitors entirely, it is also free to set rules under which visitors will be permitted to attend, or to speak.

But if it has not set any rules, then it may decide these issues by majority vote of the body that is meeting.

No rules in RONR require visitors to sign in. The closest rule you'll find in RONR is that visitors do not have the right to attend meetings. The group that's meeting might extent the privilege to visit as a guest but that privilege may be suspended or revoked at any time without notice.

Perhaps that means that visitors, if they wish to stay, must comply with the rules of the assembly pertaining to visitors.

Thank you. You have cleared this up. Our board does require those visitors attending to sign in with their name and address so we can know who people are and where they live as they relate to our HOA. Thank you for your help. Sounds like we have been doing everything correctly.

There also may be state laws that govern the conduct of HOAs that give rights to homeowners that would go beyond those of pure "visitors". But they wouldn't be in RONR either.
