A Message from the President
KEEPING TRACK OF YOUR MONEY
Perhaps the foremost important function required and expected of the Board of Directors is securing and keeping track of the Association's Treasure – its money. Few will dispute the importance and value of good bookkeeping and accurate accounting records. In today's HOAs, homeowners expect the Board to provide accurate accounting information to them upon request. When purchasing or selling property, buyers and sellers expect to know the financial strength of the community in which they are living or buying. The importance of the function of controlling and securing the association's money cannot be over stated.
SEPARATING ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONS FROM FINANCIAL FUNCTIONS.
Boards of Directors are encouraged to discontinue the tradition of employing a single entity to administer both the "Administrative Management Functions" and the "Financial Money Functions" of the association.
Candidly, Boards of Directors are admonished to commission one company to perform routine management responsibilities and a separate company to strictly perform financial functions.
The intent is to provide checks and balances on both the managerial and the financial entities serving the associations. The results will surprise you!
THE INFORMATION PROVIDED HERE.
The information provided at this website by the "California Association of Homeowners Associations, Inc." is intended to assist "you" in the management and administration of your Homeowners Association. The information and documentation is gathered from the most reliable resources including Government Codes, Documents, reliable Attorneys and many other professionals. We welcome comments from all reputable and respectable sources.
The problems, concerns, questions and difficulties affecting community associations, in large measure, dictate the information we have provided here. We are not Attorneys and cannot give legal advice. Still we can, in most cases, assist the caller. Membership in the California Association of HOAS is requested but not required.
Our philosophy has always been to serve the Community Association Industry with distinction, and in so doing, contribute to the general welfare of the industry. When Community Associations benefit, Homeowners will also benefit. This in turn will encourage Associations and Homeowners to become members of the California Association and so we too benefit; it's a good philosophy.
Remember - You Will Never Go Wrong If You Build You’re Business on Quality, Integrity And Service.
