A board resolution is a motion that follows a set format and is formally adopted by the board.
Resolutions may enact rules and regulations or formalize other types of board decisions. There are four types of resolutions for a community association:
- Policy Resolutions affect owners’ rights and obligations such as rules for the use of common areas and recreational facilities, architectural guidelines and enforcement procedures.
- Administrative Resolutions address the internal operations of the community association. Examples include operating procedures, collection procedures and where board meetings will be held.
- Special Resolutions document board decisions that apply a policy or rule to an individual situation, such as a decision about an alleged rule violation.
- General Resolutions involve routine events, such as adopting the annual budget and approving a contract.
The manager maintains all adopted resolutions. They are available to association members for review on the association’s website.
