Stargate Governance 101:
When can the Board hold a closed meeting? All meetings of the Board are open meetings. However, there are a few legal reasons when the Board may need to move into an executive session (such as for legal advice for negotiations or personnel discussion of the Executive Director's performance review). They must follow the Colorado Sunshine Laws and will always post notice of such sessions on the agenda of the meeting.
