JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I believe this statute applies to government and public agencies not your HOA. However, your HOA by-laws most likely provide for similar requirements about meetings held monthly open to the members. I serve on my HOA and we have a monthly meeting open to community members to discuss issues they have.
