There are a lot of ways to be involved in your home owners association. One of the most important is to serve on the Board. Serving on the Board will allow you to be involved with the decisions of the community as well as give you the chance to meet your fellow homeowners. Being on the Board will allow you to hear and understand other people’s perspectives on topics affecting your neighborhood and will “broaden your horizons”, giving you exposure to many new concepts, ideas and challenges. Another benefit of being on the Board of your HOA is that you have the ability to provide input first hand on how to keep your community beautiful and a great place to live.
Often communities are looking for people to help out, if you have any interest contact your current Board and ask them for more information.
