Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Whether or not joint owners can both serve on the board would be up to the bylaws of the Condo unit. The FL Court in Lakewood Village v. Beracha, 07-006293 (Broward 2007), said that as both parties are joint owners they both have a right to sit on the board if the members elect them to do so in accordance with the bylaws and unless the bylaws prevent them from doing so.
