action without meeting - board

Skip to Statutes and Cases

A board may take action (vote on a decision) without a meeting.  A board meeting is a gathering of the board in a way that the board members can communicate live and in real time.

Actions may be taken without a board meeting (through email, for instance).  However, specific requirements must be followed.


Unless otherwise provided in the bylaws, a board can make a decision and take an action without a meeting if either:

  • unanimously agreed, that is, all the board members vote for the action in writing (such as by email), or
  • Members Area.  This resource is available to members.  Join us by subscribing today!
