Children are often taught there are two answers to certain questions: yes or no. That’s not the case for elected officials, who have the ability to abstain from a vote on any given topic for any number of reasons. Often, the reason for an abstention vote is given; just as often, it is not.
In 2016, the New Hampshire Legislature amended many sections of the Condominium Act.
One passage in particular now dictates that, ”(e)xcept as otherwise provided in the bylaws, meetings of the association shall be conducted in accordance with the most recent edition of Roberts’ Rules of Order Newly Revised.”
If your condominium association was created prior to Sept. 9, 1977, you’ve received a pass as it only and automatically applies to associations created after that date. Lucky you.
