Our documents state our annual meeting be in a place where all the members can be present and for 20 years it has to be in the month of February, can it be changed prohibiting owners present? and a different month? Is this legal?
While the HOA can change its bylaws to move the annual meeting to a different month, it cannot prohibit members from attending. As per Florida law, “Members and parcel owners have the right to attend all membership meetings and to speak at any meeting with reference to all items opened for discussion or included on the agenda.” That said, nothing in the Florida Homeowners Association Act requires annual meetings to be held in a place where all members can be present. It only requires meetings of members to be “held at a location that is accessible to a physically handicapped person if requested by a physically handicapped person who has a right to attend the meeting.”
