Technically, you’re already involved. When you purchased your home within a planned community, you are a member of that community. You have the ability to vote on new rules, regulations, etc. Your community may assign a property management company, but the HOA board always controls the rules in your community. If you want to get more involved, joining the HOA Board may be the natural place for you.

We always encourage homeowners to get involved in their community, whether it’s through social events or lending a hand. For those who want to make a yearly commitment by joining their HOA Board, don’t be afraid to jump in, it can be a fun and educational experience.
