            With the exception of executive sessions of the Board (see subparagraph (b), below) and any meetings conducted by conference telephone, all meetings of the Board shall be open to Members of the Association, provided, however, that nondirector Members may participate in deliberations or discussions of the Board only when expressly authorized by a vote of a majority of the directors present at the meeting at which a quorum has been established.
            The agenda for board meetings shall include a specific time for Member questions and comments. The chair shall be authorized to impose reasonable time limitations on Member comments.
(b) Executive Sessions.
            The Board, on the affirmative vote of a majority of the Directors present at a meeting at which a quorum has been established, shall be entitled to adjourn at any time for purposes of reconvening in executive session to discuss litigation in which the Association is or may become a party, personnel matters, or business of a similar nature in which maintenance of the confidentiality of Board deliberations is consistent with the best interests of the corporation and its members.  Before adjourning into executive session, the topic(s) to be discussed in such session shall be announced, in general terms, to the Members in attendance at the meeting.

[8.6] Section 6. Quorum Requirements.
            A majority of the authorized number of Directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, except to adjourn as provided in Article VIII, Section 8. Every act or decision done or made by a majority of the Directors present at a meeting duly held at which a quorum is present shall be regarded as the act of the Board of Directors, subject to the provisions of the California Nonprofit Mutual Benefit Corporation Law, especially those provisions relating to (a) approval of contracts or transactions in which a Director has a direct or indirect material financial interest, (b) appointment of committees, and (c) indemnification of Directors. A meeting at which a quorum is initially present may continue to transact business, notwithstanding the withdrawal of Directors below a quorum, if any action taken is approved by at least a majority of the required quorum for that meeting, or such greater number as is required by these Bylaws, by the Articles, or by law.

[8.7] Section 7. Waiver of Notice.
            Any action taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors, however called and noticed or wherever held, shall be as valid as though taken at a meeting duly held after regular call and notice, if

(b) either before or after the meeting, each of the Directors not present, individually or collectively, signs a written waiver of notice, a consent to holding the meeting, or an approval of the minutes. The waiver of notice or consent need not specify the purpose of the meeting. All waivers, consents, and approvals shall be filed with the Association records or made a part of the minutes of the meeting and shall have the same force and effect as a unanimous vote of the Board. The requirement of notice of a meeting shall also be deemed to have been waived by any Director who attends the meeting without protesting the lack of proper notice either before or at the inception of the meeting.

[8.8] Section 8. Adjournment.
            A majority of the Directors present, whether or not constituting a quorum, may adjourn any meeting to another time and place. If the meeting is adjourned for more than 24 hours, notice of adjournment to any other time or place shall be given prior to the time of the adjourned meeting to the Directors who are not present at the time of the adjournment. Except as provided above, notice of adjournment need not be given.

[8.9] Section 9. Action Without a Meeting.
            Any action required or permitted to be taken by the Board of Directors may be taken without a meeting, if all members of the Board, individually or collectively, consent in writing to that action. Such action by written consent shall have the same force and effect as a unanimous vote of the Board of Directors. Such written consent or consents shall be filed with the minutes of the proceedings of the Board and shall have the same force and effect as a unanimous vote of the Board.
            If prompt or immediate action of the Board is necessary and there is insufficient time to comply with the notice requirements set forth herein, reasonable efforts shall nevertheless be made to contact all Board members regarding the proposed action in advance thereof, rather than relying on notification after the fact.

[8.10] Section 10. Compensation.
            Directors, Officers, and Members of Committees shall not be entitled to compensation for their services as such, although they may be reimbursed for such actual expenses as may be determined by resolution of the Board of Directors so be just and reasonable. Expenses for which reimbursement is sought shall be supported by a proper receipt or invoice.
