STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eighteen
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
356-B:37-c Meetings of the Board of Directors and Committees of the Association. The following requirements apply to all meetings of the board of directors and committees of the association authorized to act [for the association] or make recommendations to the board or the association:
I. For purposes of this section, a gathering of board members at which the board members do not conduct or discuss association business is not a meeting of the board of directors. The board of directors and its members may not use incidental or social gatherings of board members or any other method to evade the open meeting requirements of this section.
IV. If any materials are distributed to the board of directors before the meeting, the board of directors at the same time shall make copies of those materials reasonably available to unit owners, except that the board of directors [need not] shall make available copies of unapproved minutes [or matters that are to be considered in executive session] within 60 days of the date of the meeting or 15 days of the date such minutes are approved by the board. The only matters which may be excluded from the minutes are:
(a) Consultation with the association's attorney.
(b) Discussion of existing or potential litigation or mediation, arbitration, or administrative proceedings.
(c) Discussion of labor or personnel matters.
(d) Discussion of contracts, leases, and other commercial transactions to purchase or provide goods or services currently being negotiated, including the review of bids or proposals, if premature general knowledge of those matters would place the association at a disadvantage.
