Bill 45-14, Common Ownership CommWlities - Governing Body - Training, sponsored
by COWlcil Vice President Leventhal, was introduced on September 23, 2014. A Planning,
Housing and Economic Development Committee worksession will be scheduled at a later date.
Bill 45-14 would require the Commission on Common Ownership Communities to
develop an educational curriculum to train a member of the governing body of a common
ownership community on the responsibilities of directors.
would also require a member of the
governing body of a common ownership commWlity to complete this training or similar training
approved by the CCOC within 90 days of their election or appointment.
Individuals are often appointed or elected to the governing body of a common ownership
community without receiving appropriate training on the responsibilities of this volWlteer
position. Although it is important to avoid discouraging individuals from volWlteering to serve
their commWlity, it is equally important to ensure that those individuals who volWlteer to serve
are prepared to carry out their responsibilities as a board member.
