Thank you so much for answering. Lots of oddities with HOAs, I'm sure you've found. I was on the board, did various training through CAI (http://www.caionline.org/), worked for a friend in her small HOA management company (single-family homes), then took it over from her after she no longer wanted it. I don't require that I do all of the management work - only the portions that a self-managed HOA don't want to do themselves.
I hadn't noticed the Q was in chat so don't mind at all. Should I look to see if there is other information that could help me from what was said?
I had one HOA that has written some of this stupidity into their Bylaws - actually, they ended our contract because they don't have the funds & can't raise the dues without a vote by everyone. Their bright idea is usually to rope more volunteers into doing the work. I've done only covenant enforcement for them, which is something that shouldn't be done neighbor against neighbor. When they started with Jeanne, my friend, I hear they had 20 volunteers doing cov enf & had it into all kinds of a dog's breakfast. Guess they're headed back to that. I'm seeing if I can help them extricate themselves, eventually, so they're running things better.
The two board members who came to pick up the records did give me a hug before they left.
I need to look more thoroughly through CCIOA & the more recent revisions on these points (Colo Common Interest Ownership Act). I also need to look over exactly how they've structured their votes to involve the members rather than having the board be leaders & lead them out of this morass. Hoping I can see a way through to get the board to be leaders again - then hire me back to do their cov enf again.
Anyway, I'm not going to hit the ACCEPT button yet as there might be some more that you'd want to add.
Maybe I should copy some of their revisions into a next question (I'm out of time now for my free month - not sure how you guys get paid, though). Is reviewing text from Bylaws something you guys can do or is that beyond the scope for the attorneys on this web site?
Thank you for all your help, your laughs, and understanding!
