A Message from the President





While the demand for Community Association Housing is increasing, the participation and involvement in Community Association's business and activities by the association's homeowners is rapidly declining. Therefore, homeowners are encouraged to be active and participate in the business of their association.

Over the past 15 years I have served the Community Association Industry in a unique, supportive and satisfying position. I have talked to hundreds of Boards of Directors. I have counseled with countless numbers of Homeowners. I have advised and given my opinion to many professionals while serving the Community Association Industry. I have enjoyed and appreciated the experience. And, while I have endeavored to be objective, I have strived to give fact-based information to all with whom I communicate; I do this in an objective, unbiased and factual manner. In most occurrences (but not all) I feel this has been very well received.

However, over the past few years, it is noteworthy to mention, that I have observed a sizable increase in the quantity of disputes, apathies and disinterests occurring among the residents living within the industry. There also appears to be a rising volume of conflict between Members of the Board of Directors and individual homeowners, as well as disagreements among the members of the Board of Directors. It is also not uncommon to find a single Board Member asserting unsolicited and unwanted control over the other Board Members and Homeowners.

This discord, in my opinion, is fostered by the decline in homeowner's participation in the governing and decision making process of the association. The participation in the election process, for example, is a case in point. Frequently, Board members are placed into office because there are not a sufficient number of homeowners willing to place their name into nomination. And, when the election is held, gathering the requisite number of homeowners to qualify for a quorum, and therefore a valid election, is frequently unattained. Therefore, the Board, as constituted, defaults to another term of office, and the business of the association continues as usual. In most instances Homeowners Associations are directed by competent, capable Board Members; but, in far too many situations this is not the state of affairs. Therefore, Homeowners are encouraged to be active and involved in their associations.

When Homeowners are engaged in the activities and administration of their associations the strength and unity of their Boards of Directors is realized and the value and enjoyment of their property is affected in a very positive and significant way.
