The board of directors is the governing body which oversees the administrative, financial, and general day-to-day operations for a homeowners’ association. The board of directors is typically elected by the homeowners, or is appointed as otherwise specified within the bylaws for an association. The powers and duties of the board of directors are specified in an association’s governing documents.

In a nutshell: So, the board of directors is your tribe’s elder council. You know, those guys and gals with the fancy hats that make the important decisions. Different tribes elect their chieftains in different ways, but in modern times, we tend to stick to a majority vote. Typically, we will want to hold our leaders to some objective standard. Otherwise, we could be forced to live in a strange, tyrannical-suburb state, and no one wants that. So, we have objective rules and regulations, or the governing documents for a community, to keep our would-be tyrants in check.
