Concerning the new HOA law regarding certification of newly elected board members, it is stated that the members will certify in writing, to the “secretary of the association,” that they had fulfilled all of said requirements of this particular law. However, in our HOA it has always been that our association secretary is also a “board member.” Who does he or she certify their writing to? Also, to whom and how do all board members “finalize” their respective “certifications.” Are they required to go before the association’s registered agent or a notary public, and swear to the fact that they have, or will fulfill, the respective requirements of this law? Does this new law provided some method or means to assure that a board member swear to an oath that they have, in fact, fulfilled this law to its intended regulation? I ask this because I am fully apprised of the fact that some, not all, of these re-elected board members will sign anything to retain their board status if in fact they feel they never really will be challenged in reference to same. Signed, R.P.
