When you volunteered to serve your community association as a board member, did you realize you were agreeing to set aside your own interests and act as a fiduciary on behalf of the entire association? Are you confident you know every scenario where you might trip up and expose yourself to personal liability by failing to live up to this important duty?

Set aside an hour of your time to learn what you need to know and ensure you’re not risking your own financial security by making common—but easily avoidable—mistakes while volunteering as an HOA board member.

Join us for in an in-depth webinar on November 13 led by two community association experts who will explain in layperson’s terms what it means to act as a fiduciary for your association.

You’ll learn:

  • The specific responsibilities you carry because of your fiduciary duties, including:
    • What it means to act in a “representative capacity”
    • Understanding the “business judgment rule”
    • How to meet confidentiality requirements
  • Tips to help you understand potential conflicts of interest and how they can trigger a breach of your fiduciary duty
  • Best practices to help you avoid the most common conflicts of interest board members face
  • Information to help you identify when providing full disclosure will diffuse conflicts of interest, along with practical suggestions for doing that properly
