Making a few changes in your HOA can have a big impact on your community. If you’re looking to improve your neighborhood year after year, setting goals for your HOA in the new year is a great place to start. Check out some of the resolutions your HOA board can make in 2021.
Be More Efficient
Take a look at the procedures your HOA has in place and look for ways to streamline processes and make the most of your time. Are there repetitive steps you can simplify? Can you automate notices and consolidate notes?
Miscommunications can be common in HOAs, especially for those communities where the HOA board only communicates when it’s time for a meeting. Make sure that your communication with your residents is quick and thoughtful. Your residents should be informed on what is going on in the neighborhood, any updates to the bylaws, and any community events. Your HOA should be working on how to communicate with residents as well as working on improving how easy it is for residents to interact and communicate with the HOA board.
Recruit More Volunteers
Your HOA board can be maximizing their time by outsourcing some of their duties to committees and volunteers in your association. Spend time recruiting residents to join your finance committee, community outreach committee, and any other committees you’d like to create. It’s a great way to get more people involved in your community and to recruit people to fill any HOA board positions.
Have a filing system in place that makes it easy to reference important documents. This is a crucial task in order to have an informed HOA board and be able to answer questions from residents quickly and easily. You can get organized throughout the year by making monthly checklists and goals to get through, so you can set yourself up for success.
