Serving as a homeowner association (HOA) board member is a rewarding and meaningful way to give back to your community. You can engage with your neighbors at a deeper level and to get to know people you may otherwise have never met.
It’s also a consequential role that presents its share of challenges. HOA boards are responsible for enforcing their governing documents, protecting property values, and maintaining common property. They are charged with financial stewardship and with executing service agreements and contracts for the HOA. In addition, the priorities and actions of a board directly contribute to a community’s well-being and appeal. As a result, board members must sometimes make difficult decisions or be subject to complaints from neighbors and friends.
Understanding the role and responsibilities of a board member is crucial to serving in your new role with confidence.
