Our Condo Association was formed four years ago with 36 units and another 36 units to be added. Our condo association bylaws call for 5 directors until the other units were built. The other 36 units were just built and the condo association bylaws say there sha'll be 7 directors now. 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?

We recently had our first homeowner's association meeting. Our HOA was first enacted last March. The Board was nominated and voted upon by all members of the association. I specifically asked at the meeting before the association meeting if we were having a nominating committee. The president said we were not, which surprised me. At the homeowner's meeting, the president announced the nominations for the board which he stated were nominated by the "nominating committee" Come to find out, the nominating committee consisted of the president and the vice president. Can I have any comments on this. I was under the impression that the board has nothing to do with the nominating committee and it would be the responsibility of the members of the association. Please advise.
