What makes a good leader? That’s hard to say. Certainly, Community association Board presidents need to be organized. They have to be willing to sacrifice some of their free time for Board business. But they also must be able to move others to work toward a common goal – for free, of course. For that, they need passion and vision.
One of the main causes of burnout among active HOA board members and volunteers is the fact that they’re doing too much. But that’s often a necessity, since recruiting future leaders is a perennial challenge. “The reason you need volunteers is that you don’t have the time to do everything yourself,” says James R. McCormick, Jr., a partner at Peters & Freedman LLP in Encinitas, Calif., who represents associations.
Here, we offer six tips for identifying potential leaders in your association and techniques you can use woo those residents into becoming involved.
Condo Board Special: A Lawyer Tells All About Your Governing Documents
Maybe you’ve been on a co-op board. Maybe you’ve never been a board at all. And maybe you just need a refresher. Because one thing’s or sure: Being a condo board member, under condominium governing documents, is way different than being a co-op- board member working under a proprietary lease. What do condo board members need to know? Glad you asked….
When our new HOA was looking for a management company, several places that we contacted wouldn’t even give us the time of day because our community is so small that we weren’t worth their time and effort. In contrast, KDK Property Management (now part of Community Association Management) has provided our HOA with over a year of great service at an unbeatable price! The employees have frequently gone above and beyond the terms of our contract to protect the best interests of our neighborhood. F…

I would like to thank Community Association Management for the fine job this past year. We had our annual meeting and our Property Manager did an excellent job covering the meeting.

Thank you again for making my second year as president easier and more rewarding.

“In the past, we felt like we did not get much support due to our size or the lack of effort from the person handling our account. I do not feel that way with Community Association Management. Our Property Manager has been very active in what we are trying to accomplish in our community and providing us with a variety of options.

I wanted to thank you for doing such a good job taking care of the property. I just wish I had the time to promote your company but due to my work load I haven’t been able to (but will when time permits) because you do such a great job. I can’t tell you how much this has meant to us for you to handle yourself so professional way with our owners.

“Community Association Management is extremely thorough and knowledgeable in their approach to business. They are also very timely in their communications. They have saved our community a lot of money. When they first approached us and told us how much we could save by working with them, we thought the promise was ‘too good to be true’. They have more than delivered on that promise and more.”
