Beginning January 1, 2020, all associations must adopt new election rules to conform with changes in the law imposed by SB 323. Any election conducted without compliant election rules could result in voided elections, fines, and an award of attorneys' fees. We can prepare them at an affordable fixed fee. Contact Us.
