Meeting Remotely Can Continue With Board Authorization

remote board of directors

remote board of directorsOn January 10, 2022, Governor Murphy signed a new law, NJ-A5449. This bill permits nonprofit corporations to hold members’ meetings in part or solely by means of remote communication. Pursuant to current law, adopted during the pandemic, remote communication of members was permitted but only during a state of emergency declared by the Governor. This bill clarifies that these meetings may be held by means of remote communication so long as and to the extent the board authorizes and adopts guidelines and procedures governing such a meeting without the necessity of there being a state of emergency. Adoption of this bill serves to remove the requirement of a state of emergency.  Virtual meetings may be conducted as a matter of course so long as guidelines and procedures are adopted by the board to govern such meetings.
