Often times we are asked as Community Association lawyers how to encourage co-owners to attend annual meetings. Sometimes I facetiously indicate that the best way to get co-owners to an annual meeting is to levy an additional or special assessment. Perhaps another way to get them is to have it at an “open bar in a restaurant,” but a less expensive idea is to offer refreshments such as pizza, etc. and/or to have a grab bag or lottery where someone wins a prize who registers at the meeting, assuming that the State law does not prohibit it. Your attorney should be able to provide you with some suggestions which may help you in dealing with apathy and stressing the importance of community involvement.
