This is an interesting story we picked up via the San Diego Daily Transcript. It has some interesting ideas as to how a non-profit Board might make servant leadership a “must have” characteristic of each board member.
Every developer wants to design a great community, build it to that design with some flexibility, meet all the statutory requirements, sell to people who love living there, make a profit, and move on to the next project. So, how can the developer ensure that those to follow in the leadership of the community will work to enrich the community and uphold their fiduciary duty to maintain and enhance the common areas? The answer lies in finding responsible and trustworthy board members.
