2. An executive board may not meet in executive session to open or consider bids for an association project as defined in NRS 116.31086, or to enter into, renew, modify, terminate or take any other action regarding a contract.

3. An executive board may meet in executive session only to:

(a) Consult with the attorney for the association on matters relating to proposed or pending litigation if the contents of the discussion would otherwise be governed by the privilege set forth in NRS 49.035 to 49.115, inclusive.

(b) Discuss the character, alleged misconduct, professional competence, or physical or mental health of a community manager or an employee of the association.

4. An executive board shall meet in executive session to hold a hearing on an alleged violation of the governing documents unless the person who may be sanctioned for the alleged violation requests in writing that an open hearing be conducted by the executive board. If the person who may be sanctioned for the alleged violation requests in writing that an open hearing be conducted, the person:

(a) Is entitled to attend all portions of the hearing related to the alleged violation, including, without limitation, the presentation of evidence and the testimony of witnesses;

(b) Is entitled to due process, as set forth in the standards adopted by regulation by the Commission, which must include, without limitation, the right to counsel, the right to present witnesses and the right to present information relating to any conflict of interest of any member of the hearing panel; and

6. Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, any matter discussed by the executive board when it meets in executive session must be generally noted in the minutes of the meeting of the executive board. If the executive board holds a meeting limited exclusively to an executive session pursuant to paragraph (c) or (d) of subsection 3, at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the executive board, the executive board shall acknowledge that the executive board met in accordance with paragraph (c) or (d) of subsection 3, as applicable, and include such an acknowledgment in the minutes of the meeting at which the acknowledgment was made. The executive board shall maintain minutes of any decision made pursuant to subsection 4 concerning an alleged violation and, upon request, provide a copy of the decision to the person who was subject to being sanctioned at the hearing or to the person’s designated representative.

7. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 4, a unit’s owner is not entitled to attend or speak at a meeting of the executive board held in executive session.
