Is there a code of ethics for condo association board behavior?

Members of the condo association are also condo owners; thereby, there are times when conflict of interest between private and what is best for the group of owners arises. Is there a code of ethical behavior for board members that outlines a professional direction?

I have never heard of a formal code of ethics for board members. However, all meetings should be run in accordance to Roberts Rules of Order. Board members should also place association priorities above there own. Conflicts of interest are sometimes addressed in the declaration and/or rules and regs. If not, they can always be added.

You can always run for a board position yourself or vote the bums out.

I have been invloved with several HOA boards and I have yet to see any type of a code of ethics.  I think it is probably not a bad idea.

Not that I am aware of. Isn't there a vote for each owner? Mob rules!
