  A. Continuing Remote BOD Meetings Vote David Gidlow 1 m

California’s Ralph M. Brown Act has been amended to allow fully virtual board meetings during a state of emergency after the Governor signed Assembly Bill 361 into law on September 16, 2021 with some provisions. Since the guidance from local authorities regarding the safety precautions for COVID-19 is dynamic, the CNCA board must evaluate the need to meet virtually on a regular basis. At each meeting, the CNCA board will:

  1. Reconsider the circumstances of the state of emergency and
  2. Determine if the state of emergency continues to directly impact the ability of the member to meet safely in person or state or local    officials continue to impose or recommend measures to promote social distancing.
