REAL Leadership Protects Homeowners

The board may not … consider …
— explicit rule in the Texas Residential Property Owners Protection Act
prohibiting the Board from any non-compliant meetings held
to consider amendment of bylaws

I think ‘we’ should consider …
— repeated direction given by property management representative
at the 6/27/2017 CPMCA Board “workshop” convened
to consider amendment of bylaws

No need to mince words. The property management representative who led the June 27 “workshop” continually directed and cajoled – even arguing with CPMCA directors who disagreed on various points – specifically urging the Board to “consider” amendments to CPMCA bylaws, based on drafts not yet disclosed to homeowners and previous secret “workshops” in which the bylaws have been considered.

And no need to mince words. Texas very clearly protects homeowners against such activities, specifically stating that the Board may not consider amendment of bylaws without full compliance with Open Board Meeting rules.

There can be no greater controversy than protection of homeowners’ rights as expressed in our bylaws and other dedicatory instruments. Whenever the management agent calls the Board to consider amendment of bylaws without full compliance with those protections, the only announcement that should be published in any of the community newsletters should be homeowners’ protests against violation of their rights.

There can be no greater fiduciary duty required of CPMCA directors than compliance with protection of homeowners’ interests. Whenever the management agent calls the Board to consider amendment of bylaws without full compliance with those protections, every director owes a duty to homeowners to abstain from participation in such non-compliant “workshops.”

And there can be no greater responsibility required of each and every homeowner than to demand the protections that have been guaranteed to us. Whenever the management agent calls the Board to consider amendment of bylaws without full compliance with those protections, homeowners must reject any conclusions reached through such non-compliant “workshops” and demand restitution of any expenses wasted on attempts to circumvent our most basic rights.
