This is controlled by the CCR and By-laws, not by the law more generally: the law does not determine elibility to serve on the Board. Rather, each condominium may set its own rules. If the CCR or By-laws do not address this specific issue but allow any unit owner to serve on the board, then as a unit owner (on the title), she may do so.
