Dear Mister Condo,
What are Executive Session rules?
Mister Condo replies:
R.J., Condo and HOA Boards use Executive Sessions to discuss matters that are typically of a private or privileged to the Board. Most common are legal issues and disciplinary actions against vendors or members. There are some personnel matters – employee reviews or performance discussions. And there are times when action against a specific unit owner in arrears with the association may be discussed in Executive Session, especially if the association is preparing to take legal action against the owner. For the most part, typical Board business does not require Executive Session for most matters. When an Executive Session is called, Minutes still need to be kept and those Minutes, once approved by the Board at their next meeting, become association records which any unit owner may access. I hope that helps. All the best!
