Most condos now conduct business through electronic meetings, which can be recorded by the host. Meeting recordings are not a novel concept but our recent dependence on electronic meetings has given them new life. Minute takers have historically recorded in-person meetings to aid in accurate minutes and to best recall the details of important discussions. Similarly, an electronic meeting recording can serve the same purpose – ensuring accuracy and transparency in meetings where there is a broad interest to owners but owners can’t attend in the traditional sense. We are never against something that promotes but also clearly memorializes (hopefully) fair process.
The electronic condo meeting and recording should be for the benefit of the condo and its owners. To ensure that, we’ve developed best practices for electronic meeting recordings, which can translate to in-person meetings too.
