Board Meetings May Be Held Via Fully Electronic Methods


During the 2021 Special Session I of the General Assembly, the legislature passed a new law to allow for meetings conducted by electronic means—both association board and member/owner meetings—and removed language that required at least two board members to be physically present for video or telephone conferences.

 

The legislature also approved language amendments proposed by Governor Northam to the budget bills to address difficulties associations faced when trying to hold board meetings during a declared State of Emergency. NOTE: The COVID-19 emergency declaration expired on June 30, 2021.
