Can Family Members Serve on the HOA Board Together in Wisconsin?

Question:

Is it legal for family members to serve on a board together? We have a 5 person board, and three of them are family. When one of those family members has an issue, it gets priority consideration and always gets voted their way, so there is constant bias.

Answer:

Hi Teresa,

There is currently no law in Wisconsin that addresses this situation. However, your association’s governing documents may be able to shed some light on this. If your bylaws or CC&Rs state that board members can’t be relatives or come from the same household, then they cannot serve on the board together.
