Email communications between directors are not part of the books and records of the association. The kinds of records subject to inspection
are broad but not universal. The Davis-Stirling Act does not define emails or letters between directors as part of the association's books and records. An exception would be unanimous written consent
done by email. Such consents must be made part of the minutes of a subsequent meeting.
Even though email communications are not part of the association's books and records, they may be subject to discovery in litigation.
