Do you find yourself frustrated with some community issues that seem to go nowhere? Maybe Mr. Johnson down the hallway doesn’t pick up the Shih Zhu his dog Rufus drops around the property? Or perhaps you think community funds can be better spent on improvements that will have a greater impact on property values? Whatever the case, every resident has a vested interest in the management of their property. As a member of your HOA community, you want to ensure the things that matter most to you are addressed. The best way for you to get what you want is to get involved.
Here are three ways you can make an impact on your HOA:
Vote to influence who will represent your interests on the board;
Attend board meetings to voice your opinions, impact decisions and ask questions; and
Volunteer as a board member, on a committee, or at an event to personally affect the success of the community.
