Procedures for Board and Committee Members to Request Remote Participation – NTCA

Procedures for Board and Committee Members to Request Remote Participation

Background  

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Legislature passed AB 361 to streamline the requirements for teleconference/virtual meetings in compliance with the Brown Act during times of State emergency. To meet under AB 361 and its relaxed remote requirements, there must be a state of emergency in effect that has been declared by the Governor. There is currently no state of emergency, Therefore, the NTCA is moving forward with Gov. Code section 54953(b) (“the old telephone rule”) to provide board or committee members a way to participate in committee meetings remotely.  


Procedure

Procedures for if a board or committee member wishes to attend a board or committee meeting remotely are as follows:

  1. If a committee member is unable to attend an upcoming board or committee meeting in person and wishes to participate remotely, they must notify the administrator at NTCA before the meeting packet is posted. The meeting packet is posted 72 hours in advance.  
  2. Committee members wishing to attend remotely will need to notify the NTCA of the address of the location they are joining from. This address will be listed on the agenda. It will become an access point for any member of the public to attend and participate in the meeting either in-person or virtually.  
  3. Committee members will need to post the agenda to their teleconference location 72 hours before regular meetings and 24 hours before special meetings).  
  4. The agenda will be emailed to you three (3) days before the meeting, and you will need to post this by the address’s front door.
