In the June 2011 edition of The New Jersey Cooperator, Ronald L. Perl, Esq., the partner-in-charge of Hill Wallack LLP’s Community Associations Group, responded to a reader question regarding an association’s options when none of its members come forward to run for open positions on the association’s board during its annual election.

“Whenever there is an apparent lack of interest in serving on the board, the first step is for the current board members to attempt to recruit candidates, including: (a) personal contacts with current committee members and other members who have been vocal or demonstrated interests in association affairs; and (b) perhaps an association meeting to urge people to run.”
