Sometimes your condo association president can become a dictator. They can bully and intimidate fellow board members, the manager, and association members. Behind the scenes, they can be just as disruptive and stubborn.

However, you don’t have to put up with it.

Boards and owners have the power to remove an association president who behaves this way. Legal experts say that under most state laws and association governing documents, the board president has few powers beyond those held by other board members. Additionally, most laws and documents give association boards the power to remove the dictator from the presidency by vote at any time.

There are 5 basic steps that can be taken to remove a president, starting with the most basic procedure and escalating to the most extreme.

  1. Talk to the president and ask them to change their behavior
  2. Look into your association’s governing documents and laws to determine how to schedule and conduct a vote to remove the president from office
  3. Vote to remove the president as an officer of the board
  4. Vote to remove the president from the board entirely
  5. File a lawsuit
