This amendment amends Section 18 of the Condominium Property Act, by allowing the governing documents, through newly submitted declarations or amendment to declaration, to provide that the majority of the Board of Directors is comprised of unit owners who occupy their units as their primary residence. It further provides that the governing documents may not require that more than a majority is comprised of unit owners who occupy their units as their primary residence. The main issue raised by this new legislation is the part that states, “… may provide that a majority of the board of managers, or such lesser number as may be specified in the declaration, must be comprised of unit owners occupying their unit as their primary residence …” If this section is made applicable to the Association through an amendment, the same amendment can also remove the lesser amount specified in the Declaration. (a)(1) The election from among the unit owners of a board of managers, the number of persons constituting such board, and that the terms of at least one-third of the members of the board shall expire annually and that all members of the board shall be elected at large; if there are multiple owners of a single unit, only one of the multiple owners shall be eligible to serve as a member of the board at any one time. A declaration first submitting property to the provisions of this Act, in accordance with Section 3 after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly, or an amendment to the condominium instruments adopted in accordance with Section 27 after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly, may provide that a majority of the board of managers, or such lesser number as may be specified in the declaration, must be comprised of unit owners occupying their unit as their primary residence; provided that the condominium instruments may not require that more than a majority of the board shall be comprised of unit owners who occupy their unit as their principal residence;
