Condominium and Cooperative Practice Chair Mark Axinn authored an article for Cooperator News New York, "Q&A: Where's Our Meeting?" (December 2021)12/21/2021
Q. Last year for our annual co-op meeting, we walked into the meeting area to vote, and were instructed by the board to leave the space immediately afterward due to COVID. This year, the board is doing the same thing, using the same excuse—but the COVID rates aren’t that high. Also, there are many issues that shareholders want answers about. Is this allowed? The bylaws are very old and simply state that an annual meeting must be held in September. Is this “vote and leave” policy acceptable?
