A Board Member (singularly) can be removed from the HOA Board for the following reasons:
- Removing Themselves: They can simply demote themselves at any time for any reason.
- Governing Document Rules/Laws: Due to the governing documents or state Laws there may be rules such as an HoA Board Member is Removed automatically if: Convicted of a felony, charged with embezzlement of HOA funds, or is delinquent in paying HOA dues, failing to attend Board Meetings, etc.
- HOA Board Member’s Term Expires: Typically Board Member Terms are 2-3 years. This is the easiest way to remove a Board Member.
- Vote the HOA Board Member Out: This is the hardest way to remove a Board Member and the procedures required will depend on your state laws and governing documents.
Many Governing Documents have it set so that a 3 person Board has a rolling Board Member Term (3-year term) so that they only lose and gain 1 Board Member each year. However, sometimes a full Board turnover is simply unavoidable.
Your inexperienced and new Board Members have a massive responsibility and can be held responsible for the mismanagement of the HOA funds. We would highly recommend that either 1) an experienced homeowner in the community step in to help the Board Members manage your community or 2) the Board Members reach out to a professional HOA management company to help your Board Members (and community) succeed.
