Chemistry and communication among board members is critical. 

Here are 5 things to remember to maintain effective and enjoyable board member relationships:

Respect each other

Mutual respect among board members allows for open discussions, different perspectives, and insight on issues that impact the entire community. 

Listen to each other

While debates can be productive, it is important to listen to, consider, understand, and appreciate countering opinions.

Follow directions

The board should look out for the best interest of everyone within the community and never act in individual self-interest.

Be Honest

Clear communication and transparency creates trust and cultivates an environment where community members are more likely to be honest and participate. 

Have fun

Board members should try to have fun while handling association business. This will improve collaboration and communication.
