After a long day at work, it’s sometimes nice to sit down with a lovely glass of red wine or a cocktail. However, at the risk of sounding like an old fuddy duddy, I have to say that alcohol and HOA board meetings are just not a good mix.
Directors attend board meetings to conduct the business of their HOAs. It is not unusual for directors to consider complex or controversial issues which require their focused attention. While I have luckily never witnessed an intoxicated director at a meeting, directors are required to fulfill their fiduciary duty to the associations they serve and to exercise their sound business judgment. It’s no secret that the consumption of alcohol can interfere with an individual’s judgment.
