Is your annual meeting just around the corner? Begin planning now because successful meetings don’t happen by themselves.
“I’ve seen associations do well, and I’ve seen them stumble with annual meetings,” says Robert M. DeNichilo, an attorney at DeNichilo & Lindsley LLP in Irvine, Calif., who specializes in representing community associations. “The key is preparation. Those who have a checklist and act on it tend to do well. Those who say, ‘Oh, my gosh, we have an annual meeting!’ tend to flounder.”
