Q: Is a condominium association permitted to pay the members of the board of directors? Board members spend a lot of time and energy in a thankless job. It only seems fair that they should get some benefit for all the effort. (M.S., via e-mail)

A: Section 718.112(2)(a)1 of the Florida Condominium Act states that directors and officers shall serve without compensation unless otherwise provided in the bylaws. In my experience, it is uncommon for the bylaws of a condominium association to authorize compensating board members, although many bylaws permit reimbursement of expenses reasonably incurred on behalf of the association.

Chapter 720 of the Florida Statutes, the Florida Homeowners’ Association Act, and Chapter 719 of the Florida Statutes, the Florida Cooperative Act, contain the same basic rules.
