I just read an article out of Florida about board member education. While we do not have mandatory board member education, CCIOA does encourage board members to obtain education and the expenses of that education can and should be covered by the association. Serving on a board is a big responsibility. Oftentimes, a board is responsible for a million dollar or more budget. And, even if the budget is substantially less than that, the board is responsible for protecting, preserving and enhancing the community as a whole. Not a small feat in today’s world. Attending educational events can help board members understand their fiduciary duties, learn their governing documents and network with other board members to share resources and support.
Altitude Community Law’ 2015 educational programs for board members may be secret to your success as a board member!
