Purpose of a meeting agenda

Posted by Andreas Holder on Sunday, November 22nd, 2015 at 3:51pm.

Condominium Boards typically prepare an agenda for their meetings. The purpose of the agenda is to keep the meeting focused and to make sure that the topics typically discussed at a Board meeting are covered. The agenda typically includes a president's report, a treasurer's report, several committee reports, a management report, old business and new business. In addition, there may be special presentations from service providers or vendors. Even though many boards like to list the new business items separately, this is technically not necessary. Boards are allowed to discuss and vote on items that are not specifically listed, as long as they are being discussed under new business. 

Association members are invited to attend all Board meetings, even though they are not allowed to participate. To accommodate home owners comments and questions, it is a good practice for Boards to allow an open session before or after the formal meeting. It is important for board members to listen to the home owners and take their opinions into account when voting on issues.
