As a vendor, we email our reports to the manager and copy the entire
board. The manager told us to stop because it violated the
Davis-Stirling Act. Is that true?
No, it's not true. Sending information to the board does not violate
the Open Meeting Act. It is perfectly acceptable for community managers,
consultants, vendors, and attorneys to report to the board by email on
projects or litigation so the board can monitor their progress.
. It would, however, be a violation if the board discussed the information and made decisions by email
. Unless it is an emergency
, the board must hold properly noticed meetings to discuss and make decisions related to board business
