If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, it's time for you to seriously consider being on the HOA board.
Being an HOA member isn't like what you see in the movies. The HOA is a great way to network while making changes for the betterment of your community.
To learn more about the reasons why you need to join an HOA board, keep reading.
1. You Can Share Your Opinion With the Homeowners Association
A lot of people living under an HOA have opinions about how the HOA board runs things. But, many of them don't bother to bring their concerns to the HOA.
By joining the homeowners association as an HOA board member, you can share your opinion with the board directly. And, as a member, your opinion has weight.
So, you can forget all of those years that you sat in silence about bush trimming regulations and brick color enforcements. You get to go straight to the source.
2. You Can Make More Friends as an HOA Board Member
There are people on the HOA board that are waiting to network with you. Whether they become friends or colleagues, the HOA is a great place to meet people.
And, since you're both in the same HOA, you know they live close. You could go out to dinner or catch one another at the gym.
If you've been waiting to meet more people in your area, the HOA board is a great place to do just that.
3. You Can Be in the Know With the HOA Board
The HOA board gets to know a lot about what's going on in the community. As an HOA board member, you would get the same treatment.
You may get a notice about construction that's coming. So, you can make the necessary changes ahead of time. No more worrying about your car being towed if it stays on the street for too long.
4. You Can Use Your HOA Skills in Other Areas
The communication skills that you use in the HOA are transferrable just about anywhere. No matter what job you have, you could use the HOA skills you build as a board member.
And, these individuals can become references for future positions.
5. You Can Direct the Future of Your Community on the HOA Board
All in all, your position on the HOA board would give you direct access to your community's future. You wouldn't be single-handedly taking on the community, but your place on the board gives you a lot of influence.
So, use it.
Tell the board what you think is important. Share your thoughts and communicate with your community to see what you can change for the better.
