We use the quarterly newsletter, bulletin board and then email as needed. We like to periodically remind people of certain rules and how not to block the pipes, but avoid creating any electronic communications channels. Too many people are insane.

I'm the board president in a smaller California HOA. Board members consistently email with the entire board and/or a handful of homeowners copied, about business before the board.

I've lectured them in the past, told them to stop. They always start back up. Does anyone have tips for successfully stopping this practice?

Email Meetings Disallowed. Starting January 1, 2012, boards of directors "shall not conduct a meeting via a series of electronic transmissions, including, but not limited to, electronic mail" except for emergencies. (Civ. Code § 4910(b).) A "meeting" is defined as:

A congregation of a majority of the members of the board at the same time and place to hear, discuss, or deliberate upon any item of business that is within the authority of the board. (Civ. Code § 4090(a).)

An "item of business" is defined to mean:

any action within the authority of the board, except those actions that the board has validly delegated to any other person or persons, managing agent, officer of the association, or committee of the board comprising less than a majority of the directors. (Civ. Code § 4155.)

Summary. Except for emergencies (described below), a majority of directors may not use email to discuss, deliberate and make decisions on HOA business items.

Thanks.

On our board we have four do-nothings and one active person. So whatever role has the active person is the most important.

The best plan is to simply follow the rules. That’s the first question: “Were you breaking the rules?” Because unfortunately the people getting in trouble at the hoa often lie and make threats, or decide to harass the board members until they get their way.

The rule wasn’t enforced before and I wasn’t doing it!

Carbonara waits for no one! Serve it fast in a warm bowl.

Hire professional property management. It is simply too much work that nobody will be qualified to do or have time for. Property manager will also help you when residents or board members become problematic.

Sugo semplice or sugo di pomodoro fresco al basilico might be what you’re after.
