As most if not all our clients are aware, community association meetings are regulated by Robert’s Rules of Order. Connecticut General Statutes Section 47-250 (10)(c) requires that, “Meetings of the association shall be conducted in accordance with the most recent edition of Roberts’ Rules of Order Newly Revised”. Unless your Declaration provides otherwise or two-third of the attendees of a meeting vote to suspend the use of Robert’s Rules, it’s a good idea for Association Boards and members to familiarize themselves with the basic provisions of Robert’s Rules to better prepare them to participate in meetings. There are likely changes from the 11th Edition to the 12th Edition of the Rules and in the coming weeks we will try to point them out to you.
