This episode of the Common Interest Podcast features a story from Nicholas Bartzen, Founder of Altus Legal. His story involves the important topic of compensation for volunteer Board Members. While the Acts governing community associations in Illinois specifically determine some forms of compensation as unlawful, others are left to the determination of individual community associations’ governing documents. Nick recalls one Board President whose board caught wind of the perks he was securing for himself, and this story is about how the situation was identified and resolved.
