Conducting Elections of Condominium Board MembersThe quality of life in a condominium is determined largely by the quality of the leaders who manage it. Effective leaders of common interest communities must have a thorough knowledge of both the state statutes that govern the actions of condominium boards and their association’s bylaws and must apply these with impartiality and integrity at all times. The consequences of failure can be severe, resulting in legal and financial penalties for individuals as well as a decline in the value of association members’ most valuable assets—their homes. This course provides comprehensive explanations of the State of Florida’s laws on conducting condominium board elections in clear, everyday language. With this knowledge, learners will be able to execute their leadership roles in condominium associations wisely and professionally.
