Board Member Certification

Florida Statues, Chapter 718 section 718.112(2)(d)4.b. states:

Within 90 days after being elected or appointed to the board of an association of a residential condominium, each newly elected or appointed director shall certify in writing to the secretary of the association that he or she has read the association's declaration of condominium, articles of incorporation, bylaws, and current written policies; that he or she will work to uphold such documents and policies to the best of his or her ability; and that he or she will faithfully discharge his or her fiduciary responsibility to the association's members. In lieu of this written certification, within 90 days after being elected or appointed to the board, the newly elected or appointed director may submit a certificate of having satisfactorily completed the educational curriculum administered by a division-approved condominium education provider within 1 year before or 90 days after the date of election or appointment. The written certification or educational certificate is valid and does not have to be resubmitted as long as the director serves on the board without interruption. A director of an association of a residential condominium who fails to timely file the written certification or educational certificate is suspended from service on the board until he or she complies with this sub-subparagraph. The board may temporarily fill the vacancy during the period of suspension. The secretary shall cause the association to retain a director's written certification or educational certificate for inspection by the members for 5 years after a director's election or the duration of the director's uninterrupted tenure, whichever is longer. Failure to have such written certification or educational certificate on file does not affect the validity of any board action.

A Relationship of Trust for Board Members

As officers and directors of community associations, Florida Statutes, and the association documents require that all Board members have a fiduciary relationship in their positions with and for the home owners that they represent and serve. What is a fiduciary relationship? A fiduciary relationship simply means a relationship of trust and confidence. In other words, as an owner, I elected you to represent me on the Board and I trust you to do the following:

  1. Act in good faith in all of your dealings.
  2. Put the best interests of the association first.
  3. Operate within the scope of your authority.
  4. Act prudently and responsibly in all circumstances.
  5. When dealing with fellow home owners, doing what is right.
  6. Rely on experts when making decisions for the association.
  7. Uphold the documents and state statutes for the good of all.
  8. Maintain, enhance, and repair common areas and structures.

It is real simple, use the above as a guide and you will have done your "fiduciary responsibility". Though some fellow home owners may not be happy with your tenure on the Board of Directors, you will have fulfilled your purpose and role within your volunteer position.

Without getting into specifics, there are other Florida Statutes that provide immunity from personal civil liability to directors unless they breached their fiduciary duty and the breach was criminal, self-dealing and with malicious purpose. But if a director were to follow the 8 keys listed above they could easily state that they did what they thought was in the best interest of the community association for which they served.
