GET INVOLVED
 

Being involved in any homeowners' association generally means more than participating in the financial aspects. Becoming an active member of your association isn't as difficult as you might think.  The HOA holds open meetings  annually. More often than not, the HOA board needs input and opinions from its owners.

WHY GET INVOLVED

 You reap the benefits and rewards of a well-run association; and, in the long run, this maintains or improves your property value. And it's a great way to network other owners.

 WHAT YOU CAN DO

Volunteer to handle small tasks, like coordinating newsletters or compiling directories.

Contribute by organizing a social event, researching items to be purchased or, locating new maintenance services (landscaping services, insurance, etc.)
 
Join a committee
 
Attended annual association meetings
 
Report Violations
 
Follow HOA Bylaws
 
All of these activities will be much appreciated and none require you to be at a board meeting every month

Research Your Homeowners Association (HOA)

 Ask for a copy of last year's budget, the current year's budget and the year-to-date expenses. You should also ask for a copy of the board minutes and read what's going on.

You may find that the fees are reasonable. Part of your monthly fees may go to pay for the insurance policy ,utilities and repairs and maintenance issues. Often, people think that the fees might be outrageous and don't see the benefit for the amount they pay. But you first need to see where the money is going to determine if there is anything wrong.

Once you look at the budget, you'll have a better idea about the financial matters of your association. While the common areas may not be cared for the way you would like, you may find that the association has other, bigger problems on its plate and is doing the best it can without increasing the assessments even more.

If you find the association is wasting money, you could decide to run for the board, so you can have a direct hand in running the association properly. 
 
HOA's biggest gripe of all: When voting on issues, not enough people send in their proxies, so they don't have the necessary quorum. Some by-laws have very strict guidelines concerning what needs to be approved by the board and what requires a quorum. If an HOA board can't get the quorum to vote, the board's hands are tied.
The main reason people don't send in their proxies is because they don't know who the board member candidates are. I think it's better to vote for someone you don't know than not vote at all. Again, not having a quorum can tie the board's hands.

Remember the saying: "10% of the people do 100% of the work?" A homeowners' association wouldn't be quite the burden to a few if everyone took some time to take responsibility for some of the tasks. Get involved!
