Consultant's Emails
Adams Stirling PLC


QUESTION: 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?

ANSWER: 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.

Noticed Meetings. 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.
