Starting January 1, 2008, board meeting agendas must be posted along with the notice of meeting. (Civ. Code §4920.) With the following exceptions, boards are not allowed to discuss or take action on any item not on the agenda. As provided for in Civil Code §4930(a):
Board members and their agents (including managers) may briefly respond to statements or questions from association members, ask clarifying questions, make brief announcements, or make brief reports on their own activities.
Boards may refer certain informational matters and administrative tasks to its managers, agents and staff--even if these items were not listed on the agenda.
- Any subject may be discussed and acted upon if there is an emergency, if immediate action is needed on a matter which arose after the agenda was distributed, or if the item was on a recent agenda and was continued to the current meeting.
