Can you clarify, you are referring to a board of directors for a home owners association?
And you want to know if the board can force members into some sort of mediation?
Is that correct?
That would be possible if, and this is the key, IF the bylaws of his HOA provide for this.
That is, IF the bylaws of the HOA have language that require mediation, the BOD can use that language to force mediation.
But it is important to understand this can ONLY happy IF such language is contained in the bylaws (the rules the HOA members must follow). So if there is no such language in your bylaws? You would need to modify the bylaws to force members of the HOA to submit to mediation.
Bot***** *****ne: this is possible. But ONLY if the bylaws of the HOA provide for this...so you would have to change your bylaws, of your HOA, to force this
