Confidentiality and Committee MembersSep 22, 2019

I understand that Board members must keep confidential much of their information.
But if there is a voluntary committee - say on laundry room and vendor issues - with a Board Liaison - are the committee members required to keep information they have confidential?

I think that confidentiality applies here. Seems that the voluntary committee is acting as an extension of the Board because they are gathering information on issues affecting the co-op, and the Board will later use that info to make decisions.

Here's a good rule of thumb to keep in mind - When in doubt, keep it confidential.

So much of the Board's time is now taken up with legal issues that a judgment error could result in a lawsuit. Better safe than sorry.

My niece and nephew came to spend the summer with me. My downstairs neighbor complain to management. Can I be evicted for this.

No you can not be evicted. I would have carpeting covering 80% of your floors. Next time go to your neighbor and say you have guest staying with legs and feet so you may hear some noise.

Do you reside in a coop? If so, are there rules about overnight guests? There may be a procedure to follow.
