Policies Bridge the Gap for POAs

By Sipra Boyd and Eric Tonsul

As a result of the 87th Texas Legislative Session, property owners associations (POA) should be considering consulting with their attorneys about ways to address the impact of the new laws on their governing documents and the potential need to modify existing, or adopt new, policies. This begs the question, what is a policy and how can it be used to assist in the governance of the POA with the other governing documents?



The State of Annual Meetings

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to bring questions on the safety of conducting in-person meetings, and if they cannot be held virtually how they can effectively be conducted.


Join Shareholder Brady Ortego of our San Antonio Office and Associate Noelle Hicks of our Houston Office as they walk you through the Annual Meeting process. During the webinar, Brady and Noelle will discuss the procedures for conducting both in-person and virtual annual meetings, what the statutes require for the notice to the members and the roles everyone plays during the meeting.
