Members owning 5% or more of the separate interests may call a special meeting of the members to reverse a rule change. (Civ. Code §4365.) The written request may not be delivered more than 30 days after the members of the association are notified of the rule change. (Civ. Code §4365(b).) The rule change may be reversed by the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes represented and voting at a duly held meeting at which a quorum is present. (Civ. Code §4365(d).)
Notice of Meeting. The association (through its board of directors) must give notice of a special meeting and send out ballots.
Notice of Voting Results. The results of the membership vote must be provided to the membership within 15 days of the vote. (Civ. Code §4365(g).) If an operating rule is reversed, it cannot be re-adopted by the board for at least one year. However, the board may vote on other operating rules covering the same subject. (Civ. Code §4365(f).)
