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:
- Pay your common charges on time.
- Follow the rules. Be cooperative and help where you can.
- 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.
