Dear Mister Condo,
Mister Condo replies:
A.V., I can’t imagine what has made you and your neighbors so upset that you feel you need to force an election to replace your entire Board but suffice it to say that if there has been wrongdoing by the Board, there are steps to take to call for their removal and hold new elections. A far simpler route would be to simply vote them out of office at your next Annual Meeting. Of course, that means having a roster of willing and able volunteers to replace the Board members voted out. Are you and your neighbors ready for that challenge?
If you consult your condo’s governing documents, you will find the process for removing officers from the Board of Directors. It can vary from condo to condo but it usually involves a special meeting called by the Association Secretary giving all unit owners reasonable notice (usually 2 weeks) to attend the meeting. Your condo’s governing documents should describe the exact procedure for recalling Board members and electing new ones. Again, this is not a common practice as most communities would simply remove the Board member at their next election. That is the common democratic practice and the easiest to accomplish. Best wishes.
