1. 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. Homeowner participation is Key. No one has more power to get things done than you.
2. 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:
A. Pay your association assessment on time.
B. Be cooperative, follow the rules and help where you can.
C. Participate in a meaningful way.
3. 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.
