This Isn’t Why You Volunteered to Serve on your HOA or Condominium Association Board!

Serving on the Board of your HOA or condominium association can be a challenging and rewarding experience as well as an opportunity for you to apply your skills and talents to the benefit of yourself and your fellow association members. Whether your association is self-managed, professionally managed, or a hybrid of self and professionally managed, your service on the Board of Directors guides the community to success or failure. You very likely got your start as a Community Association Volunteer Leader for one of the following reasons:

  • You wanted to make a difference in your HOA or condominium association.
  • You wanted to lend your expertise in leadership or business.
  • You wanted to protect your investment in the association and keep a closer eye on the association’s finances.

All of these are great reasons to get involved! A calling to serve and support your community is an incredibly admirable choice. But no good deeds go unpunished, as they say.

When home and unit owners pay their common fees and assessments in a timely fashion you can spend your time pursuing the business of the association. But what happens when fellow home or unit owners fail to meet their financial obligations? Business eventually grinds to a halt. Non-payers cost your association money, cost you and your fellow board members their time, and can eventually cost other residents even more than they’re already paying to keep the community running. What is a board member to do when that happens? Are you going to take on HOA bill collection? Are you deal with the uncomfortable situation of pursuing your neighbors for payment for their delinquent association dues and fees? 

This isn’t why you volunteered to serve on your HOA or condo association board!
