Today’s blog is about notice, quorum, the right to record meetings, handling disruptive attendees and meeting minutes.
The notice requirements for a meeting are contained in the Florida Statute. The Florida Statutes provide default notice procedures, more stringent notice requirements may be provided in governing documents. The default notice procedures are as follows:
Whenever a majority of the board meets, even if it is at a picnic, and discusses board business, it is a board meeting and must be noticed and open to all members.
For membership meetings, the quorum is the number of owners listed in the bylaws or other association documents. Florida Statutes provide a default of 30% if the documents do not provide for quorum.
Every member has the right to speak at least three minutes at a meeting on any item on the agenda. This law used to have requirements the member had to provide advanced notice, which meant the members were not given an opportunity to speak if the agenda was not published in advance.
