The Manager's Role at your HOA or Condo Association
Karel Costa-Armas, LCAM, CMCA, AMS, PCAM

The role of a community association manager is to implement the decisions of the board of directors; administer the services, programs, and operations of the association within the policies and guidelines set by the board; fulfill the terms of his or her contract or agreement; and provide information, training, and, often, advice and assistance to the board as it sets policies and makes decisions.

A manager’s authority and responsibility are defined and limited by:

• Governing documents that define the authority of the board to enter into a contract (some governing documents also require the board to retain a community association manager).

• The manager’s management contract or employment agreement with the board.

• Actions of the board that delegate specific authority and duties to the manager
