The Board Meeting Agenda

“Back in the day”, there was no requirement that a board adopt or post an agenda for meetings. Any item introduced for action could be acted on even if notice had not been given the members. This changed with the Open Meeting Act. It requires an association to post or distribute agendas two days (for executive session matters) or four days (“open” meetings) prior to a meeting; if the agenda does not include a proposed action item, no action can be taken on it at the meeting. It is wiser to schedule “more” than “less”. There are nuances (including who actually sets the agenda) and exceptions and some “work arounds”.
