For this week’s speedcast, Alexander and Peter cover an important topic in nonprofit governance—unanimous consent of board members and electronic notice. When nonprofits plan programs or take action of any sort, it all starts with the board. Usually such actions are decided through a voting process during board meetings.
Giving notice to board members of such meetings is crucial for the validity of each action because even if only one board member does not receive notice, the entire decision is invalid. You can send electronic notice, but board members must consent to this prior.
Can board members vote on actions electronically (i.e. email, video chat)? At what point is unanimous consent required? Tune in to learn more.
