The South Shore Harbour Community Association is governed by a board of directors, which consists of persons democratically elected by the membership. The board has a fiduciary duty to use good business judgment and to put the best interests of the entire community ahead of personal interests.
The board is responsible for the oversight of the community association. Although the board may retain and delegate some of its duties to volunteers, contractors and professionals, the board is ultimately responsible for the duties it may have assigned to others.
The board is empowered to make all of the operational decisions affecting the community association, with the exception of certain powers which are specified in the governing documents and reserved exclusively for the membership. Operational decisions may include actions such as approval of special assessments or increases to annual assessments above a particular amount or election and removal of directors.
The board is required to comply with all of the mandates cited within the governing documents and represent the collective needs and desires of the membership. The board has the authority to determine the broad range of quality and quantity of services provided by or for the association.
