    @lshone I believe the answer to your question is found in the discussion above. To summarise it, if an owner wants, or a group of owners want, to bind the corporation or the board to a certain action, notice must be given to all owners by a properly worded motion published in the agenda. A motion that arises out of a discussion in the AGM, perhaps in an ‘Any Other Business’ portion of the AGM should not be binding on the corporation or board. It should be taken as a statement of what those at the meeting would like the board or corporation to do.

    It is somewhat like the situation of a Will, where when a person dies, the Will determines what the executor is to do; a Letter of Wishes (if there is one) expresses what the deceased would like the executor to do with their belongings if they can.

    I believe Dionne was talking about procedural motions which deal with the conduct of the meeting, such as amendments to previously published motions, points of order or privilege and so forth.

    Please spread the word!
