I agree with Eris's points -- just wanted to clarify that we set quorum on financial decisions based on a majority of units represented by at least one member because it is a commitment to pay money.

If non-owners are present, they must also consent.

In my last message I said:

a meeting has to have a quorum
and there has to be a consensus of everyone at that meeting

That should read

"a meeting has to have a quorum
and everyone at that meeting must consent."

In Roberts Rules of Order, which is the default in many bylaws, a decision-making meeting is defined as one having a quorum. Without a quorum it is not a "legal"meeting.
