Our membership and board is in dispute about Board meeting rules. Is there a site that clears this up for Virginia. Our board is 5 members, we are aware that three board members constitutes a defacto board meeting and we avoid that at all cost. Now a member has shared that having two board members meeting to have board discussions is legal but when you then have that same discussion with a separate board member, it become fuzzy. When we do this with the entire board, it's clearly illegal. How is the board to conduct business? The member quotes Sunlight as Justice Brandeis. Any thoughts? Thank you

Articles of Incorporation should have the list what is required for meetings.

SO, what are the Bylaws for?

The Bylaws typically dictate how the association is run (number of directors, who's considered an association member, duties of board officers, etc.) The Articles of Incorporation might address meetings (I've usually seen them in the Bylaws). The Articles typically establish the association as a non-profit corporation with the state (usually the secretary of State's office). It may vary a bit by state, but in my state, the Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation are filed with the secretary of state's office.
