Hmm.. in California, at least, it would be hard to do this, since the 
board meetings must be open to the public with minutes published 
etc.  If two board members happened to discuss it on the side, they'd 
be required to publish a summary of their discussions.  Mind you, not 
all boards are good about complying with the Davis-Stirling Act 
(which is what governs the sunshine and open meetings for Common 
Interest Developments).
