Section 2.11 – Quorum

Thank you @Jerry Roberts. On:May 05/01/16 9:59 PM

The original Articles of Incorporation, dtd April 1973 set a quorum as 5% of the total lots (set at 3,372) or a minimum of 169 lots. I’ve cut-n-pasted that portion below.

Then in April 1973 there were amendments made to the original Articles (1973 version) one of which changed the quorum requirement to 10% of the membership or a minimum of 125 members who are current in their dues and assessments. I’ve also cut-n-pasted that portion below

A by-law cannot supersede WV Code and/or the Articles of Incorporation. Therefore, if we find a by-law which does it becomes null and void and must be amended to fit the WV Code and/or Articles of Incorporation. Changes of this type do not require a vote of the membership for approval for that very matter and can merely be changed to fit. Such was the case with the notice of the amendment to Section 2.11 – Quorum.

Additionally, just in case you were wondering, that minimum of 125 can be either actual eligible members in attendance or a combination of members in attendance combined with the number of eligible proxies.

Clear as mud now?
