Customer Question

If there is a dispute in an association committee meeting where the wife of one of the members has had a complaint made against her because of her conduct at an "Association" event. Can the Chairman ask this member to leave the room whilst the dispute that involves her is discussed ??? Thankyou. Tony Isaacs.

Hello,

Yes, this sounds like a reasonable request but the person should be asked if he minds stepping out of the room rather than being ordered to leave the room to avoid any confrontation.

The other option is for the committee to discuss the complaint at another meeting where the member is not present.

The Association's charter/by laws should also be checked to see what they say about holding committee meetings.

Hope this helps
