Yes, in fact, this was done at a closed board meeting.
"These By-Laws may be altered, amended or repealed by the affirmative vote of 75% of the full membership at any annual or regular meeting, or at any special meeting if notice of proposed amendment be contained in the notice of said special meeting."
That tells me that they can only be amended by a vote a 75% of the full membership at a regular or special meeting that is noticed and placed on the agenda properly. This is pretty standard language in most associations. If the meeting was not noticed properly and there was not an affirmative vote of 75% of the full membership the amendment is not valid. Who voted if this was a closed meeting?
This is not helpful. The late fee was not an amendment.
I am sorry maybe I misunderstood you. I thought you stated that a late fee was added without an open or special meeting and the late was not recorded?
Is a late fee valid that is not in the recorded by-laws or recorded declaration of covenants of a home owners association in texas. This is not your question?
