The role of the association vice president can be wide in scope, but can also be narrow in scope depending on the particular vice president or the board of directors. The vice–president may assume additional duties as defined by the board of directors and the association’s governing documents.

Overview of Vice President’s Role:
The vice–president is charged with all of the powers which are required to perform the duties of the association president in the absence of the president. The vice president does not possess innate powers or authority to act in the capacity of the association president. Generally the vice president may only act for the president when the president is physically absent or otherwise unable to act.
Establishing Goals and Priorities:
The vice president works very closely with the president in establishing association goals for the future. As the second position in the association leadership chain-of-command the vice president many times helps the president prioritize the association’s goals.
Council to the President:
The vice president, in many cases, works very closely with the president of the association and provides needed input. In this role, the vice president provides a “sounding board” for the president and thus helps define issues.
The vice president many times will take additional leadership roles and will chair committees. Because of the large time commitments on the Architectural Control Committee and the Landscaping Committee, the vice president will chair one of these committees. Chairing these committees is a great way to prepare for greater leadership roles.
The vice president along with the president finds and develops potential volunteers and future association leaders. WDMI
