This committee shall serve as the SIPOA’s liaison with its legal counsel, and shall coordinate with Directors, officers and other committees upon questions of law, rules and regulations, and Bylaws that may be referred to it by the Directors, officers and other committees. This committee shall monitor all pending or threatened litigation in which the SIPOA is involved or in which it has an interest, and keep the Board apprised of any legal developments of significance or as otherwise requested by the Board. The committee may develop and recommend to the Board policies for review of contracts and for internal audit of all aspects of SIPOA operations. This committee shall also monitor such federal, state, county and town matters, proceedings or legislation that it deems appropriate that may affect the interests of SIPOA or Property Owners.
The Legal Committee meets for approximately two hours per month. In addition, and depending on the projects the committee has been assigned, the committee may hold special meetings throughout the year. The attorneys on the committee may be asked to work on contractual matters or rewrites of governing documents, such as Bylaws, Protective Covenants and Rules & Regulations, and as appropriate seek advice from South Carolina counsel.
