The key to a successful association is the support and enthusiasm of the membership — and since you’re a member, that means you.  Again and again, association leaders say that member apathy is the plague of the association — This is true.  Without the involvement of its members, the association cannot operate successfully.

Be actively involved in the association … serve on the Board, head up a committee, lend your talent where it will be the most useful.  You can also help the association by doing these three things:

  1. Pay your common charges on time.
  2. Follow the rules.  Be cooperative and help where you can.
  3. Participate in a meaningful way.

Again, the value of your home investment and the quality of your community depend on your community association … and the success of the association depends on you.  Give it all you can.
