PRO’S AND CON’S OF TERM LIMITS
Published October 7, 2020
I first heard of the law's change, I wondered if this is the right
thing for our communities? Like anything I'm uncertain of, I created
a Pro's and Con's list, which I've listed below.
Because of the term limits, you may have more openness or get
more people involved.
If you have a dictator sitting on a board, you now have a tool
to replace them.
If you've had the same board that doesn't progress the
association, you now have the means to replace them.
The loss of knowledge from a board member on projects that have
occurred, why certain decisions were made, etc.
Losing someone honest, trustworthy, and that truly cares about
the association and its business.
Having term limits, in my opinion, is an excellent thing because it
keeps things honest. While it comes with its challenges, the change
in guard allows for fresh ideas and strategies to be applied, no
different than our government. Fortunately, the law does allow great
Board Members to remain in their seats. It does take a large vote or
not interest of running; however, the possibility does exist.
would like to see a similar law for HOA's because in certain HOA's
the quorum requirement to have a valid election is too high,
allowing many boards never to change.
