Hello – i am enjoying your website. And i have a question. At a membership annual meeting, can a member make a motion for the membership to vote on and accept as an order of business? Or, is this something that only a BOD can do? Hope I am making myself clear. In other words – for example – at an annual meeting of the membership, can a successful membership vote cause a rule to be adopted by the Association and followed through with enforcement by the BOD? Thanks for the help!
Votes generally require sufficient notice, so new business can’t be brought up and voted on during the meeting itself. Property owners must be given no less than 10 days notice and no more than 60 days notice in writing of an upcoming vote to be taken at an association meeting. For votes not taken at a meeting, the association must provide notice no less than 20 days before the last day a ballot can be submitted. This is according to Texas Property Code Sec. 209.0056.
