Our manager attends meetings and whenever the President us under the weather the manager conducts the meeting instead of the VP.As far as I have been able to ascertain this isn't legal. Managers shouldn't be at the meetings according to my research. Anyone know the answer?

Maybe the VP doesn't want to do the job? Is someone going to go to jail over it? Just sounds like maybe the VP isn't comfortable with doing the meeting. Everything else procedural is being followed right?

Posters from CA will reply, I'm sure. I predict their responses will be:

1. There's nothing inherently illegal about your PM chairing the meetings. It is up to your board who will run the meetings in the absence of the president.

2. Your research is faulty since many managers attend board meetings on a regular basis. You can definitely have meetings without the PM president, but his or her attendance is up to the board.

Can you cite what you have researched that says this is not legal.

Thanks

Joyce,

You fell into the usual property owner trap of saying things that might not be accurate, but that are based on what you think is true.

Do your research, then come back and let us know what the facts are.

Everyone else is correct, Joyce. Property Managers typically attend HOA board meetings. In our HOA and I'm sure many others, the PM takes the meeting notes and that's in our contract with the Management Company, which also specifies the PM may attend up to two meetings a month, Mon-Th. after her work hours, i.e., after 5pm. In an exhibit or something in the back of the contract, we must pay her extra if the meetings last past 8pm. But the MC has never shared us when that sometimes happens.

Read your HOA's contract.

Even if your bylaws state the president must chair the meetings, and that the VP fills in when the prez is absent, if no other director is comfortable in the chair, it's OK that the PM do the job.

What is your concern about this, Joyce?
