PRIVACY OF DIRECTORS

QUESTION: When, as an owner, I ask for a list of directors' names with addresses and phone numbers, the board answers that this cannot be done because of "privacy." Is this the long and short answer? Is there something that is not being said?

ANSWER
: Directors are volunteers and have legitimate privacy concerns. There are always dysfunctional members of associations who harass members of the board. Sometimes the harassment is so intense that restraining orders are sought (and granted). Directors have a right to feel secure in their own homes and not be subjected to late night phone calls and knocks at the door. If owners want to contact the board, they can do so by (i) attending board meetings, (ii) writing the board or (iii) contacting the management company.
