Florida Governing Laws
Want to have a direct impact on your community? Serve on your Home Owner Association or Condo Association as a Board Member (BOD)! Your valuable input can help to create policies and establish best practices for your fellow residents. The BOD needs members to help and not just give their opinions or cause havoc. Board Members can fill different roles including, President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer covering a multitude of important areas of interest. You must have at least a President, Treasure, and Secretary. In some instances, one BOD may hold two positions (refer to your COA/ByLaw Docs).
Per FL 718.112, In the absence of such a provision, the board of administration shall be composed of five members, unless the condominium has five or fewer units. The board shall consist of not fewer than three members in condominiums with five or fewer units that are not-for-profit corporations. In the absence of provisions to the contrary in the bylaws, the board of administration shall have a president, a secretary, and a treasurer, who shall perform the duties of such officers customarily performed by officers of corporations. Unless prohibited in the bylaws, the board of administration may appoint other officers and grant them the duties it deems appropriate. Unless otherwise provided in the bylaws, the officers shall serve without compensation and at the pleasure of the board of administration. Unless otherwise provided in the bylaws, the members of the board shall serve without compensation.
At Kinetic, we provide the BOD and unit owners with an amplitude of knowledge information. Learn more about Boards and how they function by reviewing the information provided below, as a reference and not as legal advice
