“I am a Trustee for a condo association and a sex offender recently moved into the community.  Does the Board need to inform the residents and do we need to be concerned about privacy issues for the sex offender?”

The answer to both questions is a big “maybe.”  The laws regarding registered sex offenders vary significantly from state to state, so you will need to refer to your local laws to determine what your rights and obligations are.  You can start by inquiring with the local police department, but for an authoritative answer you’ll need to consult with the attorney for the association.
