In the first quarter of the new year, many community associations have either just elected new Boards of Directors and appointed new association officers, or are preparing to do so. As we frequently receive questions during this time regarding the roles, responsibilities, duties and obligations of the association officers, we have prepared a series of blog posts exploring the roles of the President, Secretary and Treasurer. In our following first blog post in this series, we will discuss the role of the Board President.
The President serves as its chief executive officer and generally has all of the powers and duties of any president of any other corporation organized under the Georgia Nonprofit Corporation Code. These powers generally include, but are not limited to, appointing committees, calling special meetings of the association members, establishing agendas for all association and board meetings, and presiding over those meetings.
