North Carolina's Virtual Meeting Executive order

Applicable Regulation: Governor’s Executive Order

Executive Order No. 185: Extending Prior Executive Orders on Remote Shareholder and Nonprofit Meetings During the COVID-19 State of Emergency through March 1, 2021.

  • A board can “in its sole discretion” determine that all or any part of a member meeting may be conducted by remote communication and remote balloting.

  • Association members may participate in the membership meeting by remote communication.

  • Although virtual, members do not vote during the meeting by voice or hand (like at an in-person meeting), but can vote on matters through “action by written ballot,” which can include electronic means, including e-mail, so long as the “electronic transmission … [sets forth or is submitted] with information from which it can be determined that the electronic transmission  was authorized by the member or the member’s proxy.”
