Sometimes spouses both take an active part in how their community functions. There is no prohibition on them serving on committees, but can they both serve on the board? They can, but only under certain circumstances. The first is if the condominium has less than 10 units. If that is the case, then regardless of anything else — so long as each spouse is eligible — they can both be elected or appointed to the board. However, should the condominium have more than 10 units then, while still possible, a few extra caveats must be considered. First, the condominium cannot have any timeshare units or interests. Second, the spouses must own more than one unit or there must not be sufficient eligible candidates to fill vacancies on the board. If these conditions exist and there is no other bar to eligibility, they can serve jointly on the board.
