I have become aware that my HOA in Floridia has not been able to achieve a quorum at the annual meeting for the last several years. There are 5 directors on the board serving staggered terms. These terms expire 2 in 2013, 2 in 2014 and 1 in 2016. The board has been taking the approach of with a lack of quorum they simply are taking a board vote to revote in or replace a board member. based on my reading of our by laws, the board as the right to replace a board member who leaves for the remaining term, but no right to place a board member beyond the existing term based on 5.2b. There are no provisions for placing a board member beyond a vote of the members in quorum (majority as defined in the bylaws) so i am concerned that we have 4 out of 5 board members that are not properly elected with a 5th expiring at the end of this year which will leave us with 0 properly elected... Am i reading this right?

Hmm. I am going to opt out of your question and open this up for other experts.

Your JustAnswer Account has not been charged for this conversation and your question is back in the queue. You do not have to stay online for the question to be active. Should an expert pick it up, you should be alerted via email and/or SMS (text message) unless you actively disable these features.

There is no need for you to reply at this time as this will "lock" your question back to me, thus inadvertently delaying other experts' access to it.

My apologies for any inconvenience and good luck.
