We are an HOA community of 23 townhomes in New Hampshire. There are five members on the board of directors, and members serve two-year terms once elected. There are three open seats this year, and yesterday was the cutoff date for owners to announce if they were going to run. The only candidates running are those current board members whose terms are expiring. Are we required to hold an election? Thanks in advance.

Our condo association was formed four years ago, with an initial 36 units and another 36 units to be added. Our condo association bylaws call for a total of 5 directors for the first 36 units, and a total of 7 directors once the additional 36 units are added.
The other 36 units were just built, requiring that the two board vacancies be filled. Does the condo association board appoint the two vacancies until the next association meeting in May when a nominating committee nominates the board members to be elected at the annual meeting, or do we just stick with the board members that the board appoints until their term is up? I can't seem to find anything on this in Robert's Rules.

Since last October, I've been trying to persuade our BOD's to amend our bylaws pertaining to our officers, length of term, number of officers, removal & replacement, etc.. Recently, the statement below was sent to me by our President. "As of today (December 18, 2001) the elected members of the board have replaced the developer, John Doe (developer representative) has a seat on the board as discussed during this transition. The board has determined that the annual meetings will be in November. Board seats are for three year terms. In the case where a member resigns, the board may appoint a member to fill that seat until the next election Elections will be held at the annual meeting. Qualifications for board seats will be determined at a later date". Sincerely, Larry, Moe and Curly Homeowners Association. Recently, I requested from our President a copy of the above statement for examination, he emailed me a copy of the statement and added the following remark. "This was per bylaws for "original board". To date, this has worked well and has never been changed". The copy that was emailed to me shows no ones signature other than the Association name in place of a signature. Because, it has no signatures and not been notarized or recorded within our Master Deed, is it fair for me to assume, this is a worthless piece of paper. I'm open for any suggestions that would give me more basis to get my point across to the BOD's. The President is a very difficult person to deal with.
I am in a condo association of 36 condo owners. Last week we had our association meeting which elected three new board members. I asked the president of the association at the last meeting if there would be a nominating committee. He informed me there would not. When I got to the association meeting I find out that the president and vice-president were the nominating committee. Can someone please comment on the ethics of this?
Our condo association needs to vote. To pass the vote, we need "at least 2/3 (66.67%) of the owners". We are 11 owners. At first, the board and homeowners agreed on 8 owners (8/11=72%) but now, the lawyer says 7 (7/11=63.63%) is fine too (or 8 is fine too). Real number is 7.33. It is a critical number for a critical vote and 2 numbers seem fine. Any comments?
