Dear Mister Condo,
Can Board members utilize the association’s official unit-owner mailing list for personal communications? And if so, must they give individual unit-owners likewise access to the mailing list on-demand?
Mister Condo replies:
L.D., the short answer is that the association’s official list of unit owners should NEVER be used for anything other than association business. It is not a commercial list or a list for marketing. It is a legal record of unit owners who require notification of association business. It is to be used for serving notices, issuing newsletters, rule changes, notice of meetings, and any other official use by association governance and management folks. The list should never be offered out for sale, rental, or use to anyone outside of the association for any non-association related use. Hope that helps, L.D.. Best wishes!
