Therefore: In order to hold a board meeting, do we need a majority of FOUR or a majority of SEVEN? If four board members are present at a meeting of the board, how many "yes" votes are needed to pass a motion? There's nothing else on this subject in either our documents or the Florida statutes.

“Therefore, a majority for quorum purposes would require three members (out of the four) to be present and any issue being voted on by such board would also require three out of four to agree in order to achieve a majority decision. Where the confusion may be coming in is in regards to the provision in the by-laws that states that if there is not a quorum, the majority of those (minority members) present can vote to adjourn (which is somewhat of a moot point, since the meeting presumably may not continue without such quorum anyway); however, the same is a limited instance of such minority being able to vote to adjourn simply as a formality and is not, in my view, an indicator that such minority can vote on any other issues without a majority present as required by the bylaws.
