Your answer depends on who's filming and the purpose for filming or recording an association meeting.

There may or may not be a law covering filming or recording -- you can check with your local Secretary of State regarding the style of corporation your association fits within. (Associations are usually non-profit corporations.)

If you are a disgruntled owner with significant differences with board business or board actions, you may want to collect evidence. In this case, you can seek the advice of counsel in answer to your question.

If you are a board secretary and believe this is the best way to document your board meetings, please be aware that this digital document may become evidence in case of a legal situation.

(Taking notes and structuring board meetings around an agenda and taking minutes relative to board resolutions is much preferred to filming or recording board meetings.)
