- A congregation of a quorum of the board, at the same time and place, to “hear, discuss, or deliberate upon any item of business that is within the authority of the board.” (Civ. Code § 4090(a).) or
- A teleconference where a quorum of the board, in different locations, “are connected by electronic means, through audio or video, or both.” (Civ. Code § 4090(b).)
“Items of Business” & Delegation
The Davis-Stirling Act defines an “item of business” to mean “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 quorum of the board.” (Civ. Code § 4155 (Emphasis added).) Thus, a board may delegate some of its responsibilities to a manager or committee in order for certain actions to be taken between board meetings (i.e., the review/approval of architectural applications is often delegated to an “architectural committee”).
- The notice and agenda requirements the association must satisfy prior to the meeting being held.
- The matters which may be discussed or acted upon by the board at the meeting. (See “Executive Session.”)
- Whether the meeting may take place via email. (See “Email Meetings” and “Emergency Meetings.”)
- Whether the members have the right to attend, observe and speak at the meeting. (See “Board Meeting Attendance Rights” and “Open Forum.”)
