Calling for HOA Directors
Posted By ngonzalez on February 6, 2021
Sitting on the Board of Directors of your homeowners association is a rewarding way to get involved in your community, get to know your neighbors, and personally ensure that your property values and the community lifestyle are preserved and protected–for the immediate future and in the long run. As an Owner and member of Barker Block, you have the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors where you can bring fresh ideas and strategies to the table! Do you have what it takes?
So what makes a great HOA board member…
Enjoy volunteering: Every board member in a homeowners association is a volunteer. Therefore, they must have the time, patience and enthusiasm to dedicate themselves to community issues, even though they receive no monetary compensation.
Being civic-minded: The best board members want to get to know their neighbors, enjoy building community, and take pride in the place they live. They put their community’s best interests first and seek to build long-term value for their community, both socially and financially.
Positive and Optimistic: Managing a community comes with many challenges. Great HOA board members bring positive expectations to their role and refuse to get discouraged, even when faced with tough decisions.
Exercise fairness: Board members are there to serve their communities, not their own personal interests. Great board members understand this and demonstrate respect to all community members, regardless of how they feel about an issue personally. Their friends receive no special benefits; they know that HOA rules must be evenly applied to all community members.
Authority comes as a board, not a board member: Great HOA board members know that they possess no individual authority; rather, in their role as a unified board, they make group decisions that positively impact their communities. Therefore, they quickly support group decisions, even if they are counter to their own personal opinion.
