As part of our article series on Tips on Recruiting Future HOA Leaders, we wanted to take a closer look at how homeowner’s associations can supplement their dwindling volunteers by scouting new members. Whether your HOA’s leader is stepping down or you just want a fresh outlook, recruiting new and future leaders can have a positive impact on your association. While we explore some of the precautions to take during this process, secure your operation with an LA HOA Insurance policy, crafted specifically to match the unique risks that HOAs face.
While it may be ideal to have board members with relevant experience, it can be a challenge for them to commit the necessary time to the HOA. A CPA or someone else with financial acumen, a lawyer, and even a property manager can provide the necessary guidance and assistance to the board. However, how much time can they contribute? When scouting new members, inquire politely about their schedules and ask if joining the board is something they would have interest in. Oftentimes, homeowners want to be involved to resolve issues they have personally experienced.
For example, “If you have people coming to you and complaining, keep a list. I’d go to people in that group and say, ‘You’ve called me three times with concerns this year, and the election is coming up. Why don’t you run?’” says James Donnelly, president and CEO of Castle Group explains to HOA Leader. While they might have limited free time, they could be inspired to join the board in hopes of improving their community.
