Board Meeting Definition

The board of directors of a common interest development shall not take action on any item of business outside of a board meeting.

Board meetings are defined by the Davis-Stirling Act as a gathering of a quorum of directors at the same time and place to hear, discuss, or deliberate upon any item of business that is within the authority of the board.

An item of business means any action within the authority of the board, except those actions the board has validly delegated to any other person or persons, managing agent, officer of the association, or committee of the board comprising less than a majority of the directors.

With proper notice, the following meeting forms are permitted:

  • Board members can meet in person at a physical location.
  • Board members can meet by telephone or by video conference such as Zoom.

Disallowed Meetings

  • Email meetings are not permitted except for conducting emergency meetings.
  • Unanimous written consents can no longer be used for actions without a meeting.
