The Brown Act is a series of statutes under Government Code §§ 54950-54962 regulating the meetings of public legislative bodies at the local government level. The Bagley-Keene Act applies at the state government level. Neither Act applies to community associations.
Community associations are regulated by the "Open Meeting Act" found in Civil Code § 4900. Even so, the Brown and Bagley-Keene Acts can provide some useful guidelines concerning board meetings. For more information see:
