Thank you for using our service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you today.
To accomplish this you will need to revise your CC&Rs. This will require you to get the necessary votes under the terms of your existing CC&Rs to pass an amendment, the new documents will have to be recorded with the County Recorder's Office, and you can then add as many Board Members as you wish.
To do this, I recommend that you find a good HOA attorney to assist you in drafting the documents, revised CC&Rs or Governing Documents should be carefully drafted, unfortunately I cannot assist you with the specific document drafting through this website forum, but I can give you a couple of websites to help you locate local attorneys that can assist you with this type of document.
You can find attorneys on your State Bar Association’s website; Martindale Hubble: (http://www.martindale.com/); or, on AVVO: (http://www.avvo.com/find-a-lawyer).
To keep costs down, I recommend finding an attorney that is working in a small firm or as a solo practitioner. A newer attorney usually charges slightly less than a more experienced attorney, while the more experienced attorneys are usually a little more efficient. In the end, you need to find an attorney that you feel comfortable with, and it is okay to speak with more than one before retaining one.
I hope the above is helpful, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to let me know and I will follow up quickly.

I don't think you understand my need. We're not changing condo docs. Simply want to create a petition and garner the signature of Owners. If a majority of the Owners agree to increase the board by signing the petition we only have to submit it to the board whom must accept it and increase up to the number already allowed by our docs. That number is XXXXX
