After a fashion:  To participate in a plenary decision-making or consensus, one 
must be “in the room” and in the moment.  No mail-in objections, no votes by 
proxy.  However, “in the room” includes remote video participation.  And we 
recognize that an absentee owner can delegate the exercise of his/her rights to 
someone bearing power of attorney.

We’ve also had situations where where a unit was owned by multiple independent 
parties — some members, and some not.  But we never experienced conflicts or 
controversies about who speaks for a unit.
