Our HOA has been under legal attacks from a very narcissistic owner who wants to be the General Manager of the property. This owner is not qualified but thinks that just because he has some property management experience with wholly owned condos, this would qualify him to manage 435 Timeshare owners sharing 12 units, and 8 whole unit owners. He also shows horrible people skills and no knowledge of financial management and especially no timeshare knowledge or experience.
Is there a rule or bylaw that I could use as a template to define and rule against any owner becoming an employee of the HOA? We have also had a manager in the past who owned several timeshare weeks, abused the privilege, and not only traded-up fixed weeks without oversight, but hired his buddies to do many contracted jobs. We need to stop this activity and state that the HOA will not allow this form of conflict of interest. Our current manager is highly ethical and will not hire owners for any reason, but we need this spelled out clearly for our protection from this highly volatile and litigious owner.
Sounds awful! I would recommend asking a lawyer to help you draft that provision for your bylaws. A lawyer can look over all of your governing documents and write a rule that addresses this issue without coming into conflict with existing rules.
