Required Qualifications and Responsibilities for Board Membership

All board members must be at least 21 years of age and be elected by the members of the Assocation at an annual or special meeting.

General Duties. The Board shall manage and control the affairs of the Association, adopt reasonable rules of order for the conduct of the meetings of the Association, and with reference thereto, have sole determination upon procedural questions upon which no rules have been adopted, and select the officers of the Association. The Board may also establish committees of the Association and appoint members thereof. It may assign to such committees such responsibilities and duties not inconsistent with the provisions of these By-Laws or with law as it may deem appropriate. The Board may further issue and promulgate its rules and regulations as it deems necessary or proper to carry out the duties and responsibilities of itself and the Association as the same are determined and defined in the Declaration.

Because there is no longer a management company, the board shall also be responsible for the care, upkeep and supervision of the property and the property manager and the collection of annual assessments and maintenance fees from the owners.
