Requirements for giving notice to board members are normally found in the association's articles or bylaws. If the governing documents do not contain notice provisions, Corporations Code § 7211(a) provides for the following:
Regular Meetings. Regular meetings of the board may be held without notice to the directors if the time and place of the meetings are fixed by the bylaws or by decision of the board, such as "6:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month."
Special Meetings. Special meetings of the board require four days' notice to directors by first-class mail or 48 hours' notice delivered personally or by telephone, including a voice messaging system or other system or technology designed to record and communicate messages, telegraph, facsimile, electronic mail, or other electronic means.
Emergency Meetings. Emergency meetings may be held with whatever notice as may be practicable under the circumstances.
Any required notice may be waived by individual directors. (Corp. Code § 7211(a)(3).) See membership notice requirements.
