Virtual Meeting Statute

Nevada law allows nonprofit corporations, such as community associations, to conduct meetings via electronic means, per Nevada Revised Statute 82.271(3. If an association is a non-profit, as is the case with most Nevada associations, it will be governed by the Nevada Nonprofit Corporation Act, specifically regarding corporate structure and procedure. Contact your association’s attorney to see what your community’s options are for virtual meetings based upon your governing documents.
