E-mails Are No Substitute For Board Meetings

Posted by on Jun 12, 2013 in Board Meetings

E-mail has become a convenient and quick means of communication, allowing people to converse regardless of where they are.

Unfortunately, some community association governing boards have become so dependent on the ease of e-mail that they use it in place of board meetings. That is a mistake. As discussed in more detail in our client alert, e-mail cannot replace board meetings.
