§ 14–3–601

There is a lot of confusion about why a Bent Tree property owner has to apply to become a member of Bent Tree Community, Inc., before they can vote in Board elections. I’ll give some related history next week, but the short answer is spelled out in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A), under the chapter about nonprofit corporations“No person shall be admitted as a member without his or her consent.”

It can be pretty confusing.  Click here for a related post from last year.
