The appointment of general meeting officers is a necessity for holding any general meeting of co-owners. The range of titles and offices of general meeting officers is diversified: president, vice-president, meeting secretary, and possibly scrutineer. Like any other person, general meeting officers may engage their personal liability if they do not observe a duty of care and diligence in the performance of their duties. They are - whether remunerated or not- therefore exposed to legal proceedings in the event of a breach of their obligations. Depending on the circumstances, this could be the case, for example, if the president of the meeting takes a wrongful decision during the course of the meeting, and that his decision causes a prejudice to one or more co-owners.
