The President and Vice President tell me our HOA is exempt from the Arizona Open Meeting Laws while other in the HOA believe we are. If the HOA is in fact exempt, can you explain that for me? There is one issue in particular that I am concerned about and that is recording of the meeting by the HOA Board of Directors. Currently an audio recording is made of the meetings supposedly for the sole purpose of being able to transcribing the recording for written minutes. Once that is done they are deleting the recording. This doesn’t seem to be legal. Isn’t the recorded meeting part of a permanent record that should be made available to all members of the HOA?
