I have a question concerning following our governing documents. Can we as the Board of Directors ignore our governing documents and apply new rules to our community on our own if we feel they work better than our governing documents? Like for instance: our bylaws say we are supposed to elect a committee of 5 resident members to design rules for the recreational facilities (pool and clubhouse) and they submit them to the Board for approval. The problem is, the committee we feel, isn’t strict enough with the rules they have come up with and won’t submit rules we want them to submit. Here’s one example: the committee wants to allow Bible studies and Christian Socials in our clubhouse but the Board doesn’t. Our bylaws do not exclude these types of activities, but we would like to but the committee is not budging. Can we adopt the rules we want without a committee? Thank you, Mrs. Barb – Anonymous Secretary
