Prior to the Legislature's 2012 amendment to the Open Meeting Act, boards could take actions by unanimous written consent without a meeting. (Corp. Code §7211(b).) Such actions are now disallowed except for emergencies. (Civ. Code §4910(a)). See "Emergency Meetings."
In associations that are not common interest developments, boards can continue to take actions by unanimous written consent as provided in Corporations Code §7211(b).
