VAGUE AGENDAS

QUESTION: If there are multiple items to be discussed under a category on our agenda (e.g., the Monitoring Committee), do we have to list each individual item or can the agenda just show "Monitoring Committee"?

ANSWER: All items scheduled for discussion should be listed. If you plan to discuss and vote on particular issues, the membership needs to be alerted so they can attend. By itself, "Monitoring Committee" has no meaning. If the board plans to vote on the installation of security cameras in the common areas, listing that as an agenda item is much more meaningful.

RECOMMENDATION: Open meeting agendas need to be sufficiently specific to alert members to the nature of the business that will be discussed and voted upon to they can attend and observe the discussion if they so wish.
