[Read more…] about When we contact resident’s about violations we get beat up on, bullied and slandered on social media. Our approach so far has been the “high road” and not respond. We’re starting to feel like we did not give up our rights to defend our reputations when we joined the board. What is our association’s responsibility and our right as a board to use the association’s resources to defend our reputations when attacked in relationship to our volunteer positions?
[Read more…] about We have a bar in our clubhouse. It is unused, there is no bartender, no alcohol is sold. Several residents would like to start a bottle club. They would “stock” the bar with their alcohol and on weekends hire a bartender to serve their alcohol to their group. Any resident may “join” the club. The only requirement is to provide alcohol. However, some residents feel they should be entitled to “free” drinks since the club is using the bar and storing their alcohol in bar storage. Can this group residents act as an unofficial club? If the board designates this club as official, what are reasonable accommodations for all residents to participate?
[Read more…] about A fellow board member, in my opinion, has been treating one of our residents unfairly. It does not go beyond illegal activity, but it is close. This resident has reported the board member to the local authorities and management company. Expressing my opinion unofficially to the board member has not provided this resident any relief. What else can I do in my official and unofficial capacity, and am I putting the association at any risk by taking or not taking action?
