A group of homeowners in my development are calling for a special emergency meeting to "discuss" several issues. They have presented the board with their request, saying that they received 22 signatures (adequate #) and a proposed list of subjects to be addressed. Problem is, they did not include the names of those signing. I know the people who signed filled out a form stating the issue each would like discussed. I want to require them to present those forms with signatures to verify the intent of the members. Is that appropriate? What if they refuse?

ValerieC - yes, it's appropriate. Those calling for a special meeting should comply to the letter of the by-law requirements. Doing so protects the board in case any owners that are not in agreement with this group of homeowners' "issues" feels they are adversely affected by their purpose and the result of the special meeting. The board should not have egg on it's face. GeraldT1

Are they calling for a special meeting from a petition? If so, then they are required to give you the petition. If there are any members who have not paid assessments, etc., this reduces the eligible vote and their signature doesn't count.

If they want to have a meeting to ask questions and be informed, then I would request the information so that you can be prepared for the meeting and have answers to their questions.
