Our board just recently changed the time of the annual meeting from January 15 to "anytime between January 1 and June 30". I for one am not going to sit around and wait for them to call a meeting. This was done at the annual association meeting. I have no idea what the members were thinking when they voted for this--ignorance I assume. Is this normal?

Because of serious inconsistencies in notes and agendas, I have begun taping condo association meetings I attend here in California. The board insists that is illegal and goes into closed session. I have been sworn at and threatened (on tape), and told whole meetings will become executive sessions. I'm under the impression that as a paying member and Californian, I am allowed to tape what is essentially a public meeting. Is that wrong?

Our Board is reviewing a budget for 2012 with our Annual meeting set for Jan 2012. FS 718.112 Bylaws Section 8,(e). Budget meeting states that "Any meeting at which a proposed annual budget of an association will be considered by the board or owners..." has to be conducted with 14 days notice and a copy of the proposed budget needs to be supplied. Our President refused to provide a copy of the proposed budget to any owner before or even after the meeting. He claims the Board has the right to "not" provide the proposed budget for owners to review before the Board is ready for it to be released. Is this a correct interpretation of the Statute?

Are meetings of officers separate from the entire board allowed? I am a homeowner as well as a board member in a HOA of 1500 homes. We have a board of 12 members with 4 officers. The 4 officers have taken it upon themselves to call themselves the "Executive Committee" They meet privately with no notices of the meetings posted and set the agenda items as well as promulgate rules of conduct for the meetings and take up other matters without notice to even the other board members. They have turned down such requests as having an open forum and even allowing anyone to see or have presented a Manager's report. We are in Florida and have a monthly BoD meeting with severely limited discussion allowed on even the agenda items. They are absolutely united in their determination to have no changes made. Is any of this in violation of any Florida statutes or laws, and what remedies can any of you suggest? Thank you in advance.

We are a 24 unit condo in Iowa with a 5 member board. In 2010 the State of Iowa passed a law regarding condo board meetings stating that meetings be open to all members, with a 7 day notice , minutes to be available to all members, and that any action taken during a meeting not meeting these requirements would be invalid or enforceable. Our board is well aware of this state law, and in fact one member of the board has on occasion refused to attend a meeting that was held secretly without notice. The other 4 members of the board continue to hold meetings with no or improper notice to the members. What procedure is available to force this board to follow state laws?

A group of owners has asked that we e-mail unedited minutes of each condominium board meeting to all owners. Is this a common practice? We are wondering what the experience of other associations is in this regard. Has it been a favorable experience? What sort of unintended consequences have come from the practice. Are there any legal prohibitions from doing so? Our documents call for the minutes to be available for inspection at reasonable times at our business office (we are essentially self-managed and do not hav a central office). Is this sufficent and the only access we should provide?
