Our Association has not been able to reach a quorum in

Customer Question

Our Association has not been able to reach a quorum in annual meeting for many years, so that no Director has been elected with a quorum present or by proxy. Legally, how can we function? Can we elect our officers?

It sounds like you are going to have to continue doing what you have been doing until there are enough owners who wish to take an interest in the Association. Until that occurs, you are operating legally, but you might consider an amendment to the bylaws permitting a lesser number to be a quorum. Again though, that would require a majority vote of a legally constituted board of directors. This is commonplace in HOAs, many of which have operated for decades, and will continue to do so unless and until a disgruntled member shows up with a complaint of some kind. I hope that this information is helpful and that you will assign it a positive rating at this time.
