Board, Committees, Volunteers

Our condo board has five directors, elected for two-year terms, alternating so that terms overlap. The board itself elects a president from among its members; it must either appoint or elect a secretary and it may appoint other officers who may be directors, also, but need not be. The board also establishes committees with specified mandates.

Directors of the Board are volunteers. Committee members are volunteers. There are also volunteers who provide less formal or regular service, including helping with a particular event. The condo depends on volunteers and many functions could not be provided without them.

There is a Volunteer Code of Ethics and a Board Policy, approved 2014, to support it.
