What are the duties of homeowner association board members?
February 13, 2014 8:21PM
The association is (usually) a non-profit corporation, so board members are volunteer corporate officers.
Their duties are spelled out in your governing documents. In addition, the state law defines the duties of the individual offices of corporations. State law may also define the legal responsibilities of board members.
For example, in Washington State, the duties include the preservation, protection and maintenance of the real estate assets owned in common by the association's owners.
The Community Association Institute publishes a series of best practices reports, which outline options for board members. These offer ideas for governance, community, and finance, all of which are the responsibility of the board.
