quorum

  

Definition

Fixed minimum number of eligible members or stockholders (shareholders) who must be present (physically or by proxy) at a meeting before any official business may be transacted or a decision taken therein becomes legally binding. Usually the articles of association or bylaws of a firm specify this number, otherwise the number prescribed in corporate legislation (such as company law) is followed.
