    Without recognized rules of procedure for general and board meetings, chaos and anarchy could prevail. Every condo must have an agreed upon set of rules of procedure that should be set forth in the bylaws or as an approved “rule” (CPA section 32.1). Todd makes a very good case for that to be Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised. Its simplified set of rules is adequate for most condominium corporations meetings but when things get complicated there are provisions to fall back on that have stood the test of time. This is the reason that RONR is by far and away the most commonly used parliamentary procedure authority. RONR In Brief is inexpensive and readily available as a reference authority for the chair of a meeting.
