Homeowner Input at HOA Board Meetings in AL

Question:

My community does not allow us to ask questions at our board meeting . The board will not accept emails of questions we have and also the property manager if you email them they don’t respond to any of your emails. What right do I have as a Member of this community.

Answer:

Hi Rosemary,

Make sure to check your governing documents to see the procedures and requirements for board meetings. In some HOAs, the bylaws specifically require board meetings to designate an open forum portion wherein homeowners can ask questions or voice their concerns. If your governing documents contain similar requirements, then your board is obligated to hold an open forum during board meetings.

If you are dissatisfied with unresponsive board members, you might consider calling them on the phone or approaching them personally. If that doesn’t work and many homeowners feel discontent with the board’s performance, you may want to consider removing the problem board members. Your governing documents should also consist of the proper procedures for removing board members. The Alabama Nonprofit Corporation Act Section 10A-3-2.09 also tackles board member removal.
