Many HOAs have board members who are also attorneys. Attorney board members can provide valuable input as board members but have to be careful not to provide legal advice. The attorney board member’s experience and training help with identifying legal issues, framing those issues for the board, and presenting the questions with clarity to the HOA’s counsel. The attorney board member’s legal experience likewise aids attorney board members in helping the board understand the import and implications of legal advice received, and in the board’s adoption and implementation of appropriate actions in light of that counsel.
