New York's Cooperative and Condominium Community
No quorum for 15 years and had our first electronic and virtual meeting two weeks ago which resulted in no quorum again. This time our new management company sent out the results which showed 267 shareholders did not vote. 213 shareholders voted and 45 appeared on Zoom. My question is can shareholders get a copy of the shareholders that didn't attend our meeting so we can reach out to them? We need to find out what is wrong that; that large number of shareholders didn't vote or care to attend the meeting after a ballot box was placed on site? We have 115 sublets out of 480 units could that be the reason why we cannot obtain a quorum? Can we get our quorum lower to reach a quorum at a later date. When asked for an adjournment our lawyer said the board has to vote on it and the same for lowering the quorum. What can we do to move forward as I tried rallying the shareholders and only got 6 who want action? Thank you !Join the Conversation Comments (0)
