Dear Mister Condo,
How often is condo board required to meet?
Mister Condo replies:
G.Y., thank you for writing. Your condo association’s governance documents very likely spell out the governance details such as who is eligible to serve on the Board, election procedures, and frequency of meetings. A quick review of these documents will likely yield your answer. Typically, condo boards are required to meet once per month as prescribed in their condo documents. However, there are plenty of times when those rules are modified or changed to reflect the actual needs of a particular association. For instance, if a community is only active for half of the year (think of a ski resort community), the Board may only meet during the active season and conduct the association’s business during that time. Similarly, smaller community associations that have been around a long time and tend not to have too much business to conduct on a monthly basis may opt to go to a quarterly meeting schedule. Regardless of how often the Board meets, Minutes of those meetings must be taken, approved by the Board at their next meeting, and made available to any association member upon request. Minutes are the official documentation of the meeting and any business transacted. Hope that helps!
