Lack of communication is one of the biggest problems in every aspect of life. In that respect, it’s no wonder that HOA management’s lack of communication can lead to all sorts of trouble in an HOA, the board, and the community. The most effective way to avoid misunderstandings has everything to do with being open and communicating your thoughts and feelings to others. In case you’ve noticed the following issues within your own HOA, you may want to take matters into your own hands, and encourage everyone to act. It’s also important to be aware of the main reasons for poor communication in your HOA so that you can efficiently fix this problem.
You don’t have a special committee
When you constantly witness HOA management’s lack of communication and the way it affects the board members, you may find yourself in a tricky situation with no one to turn to for help. This is where a special committee that will deal precisely with these issues can be essential. For instance, this special committee can be responsible for sending newsletters and online updates to all the members and send the necessary info back to the HOA manager. In that respect, you will have a proper communication that goes both ways without the members and the management actually having to discuss things face-to-face. Not only are you saving time but you’re also boosting the efficiency of HOA’s work by catering to people who may not find it that easy to speak openly otherwise.
Important issues are not communicated
One of the biggest issues that stem from HOA management’s lack of communication has everything to do with the matter of importance in regards to the HOA agenda. Basically, failing to notify the members and residents of very big and impactful changes in the community can only worsen your relationship. Everyone in your community has to receive a proper notice about any update that will directly affect their lives, especially if those updates have something to do with finances and general board operations.
The lack of proper assistance
HOA management’s lack of communication can lead to a lack of proper assistance when necessary as well. Essentially, you can’t do everything on your own. HOA management companies as well as contractors, lawyers, and others are all there to help you make your community a better place because this is not a one-man operation. Open communication is an absolute must if your goal is the general betterment and happiness of every member of your community. And if you fail to communicate your needs and actually try to deal with all the different HOA aspects on your own, you’ll only have to deal with much bigger damage later on.
