For the Common Good

Posted by Chris Kelsey on Jan 11, 2017 8:00:00 AM

As the new President takes office and the political chips fall where they may, we have an opportunity to assess what we value personally and for our communities; to focus on what common interests and goals unite us. Our political systems are imperfect and incapable of appeasing every individual, but they operate on the principles of majority rule, checks and balances, common good, and public service. While on a scale that is probably less than “micro” compared to the federal government, our HOAs can be seen as a microcosm of government, operating on these same principles. Let’s explore each of these principles of governance as they pertain to HOAs and their boards of directors:

2017 for the Win! New Year, New Property Management Software

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Jan 4, 2017 9:55:18 AM

 Technology for property management software has evolved. A growing number of managers are replacing pen and paper with tablets and smartphones on compliance rides and even HOA boards are discovering the benefits of association web portals with important functions, such as, online payments, homeowner accounts, eBlasts, and community calendars. While the industry as a whole has been slow to adopt new technologies, many property management companies are realizing the competitive edge software can provide by streamlining operations and making it easier to provide quality service to HOA clients.

The season of elections is upon us, bringing with it challenges inherent to neighborhood politics. Changes in dues, reshuffling of the HOA board, and ballot measures to amend governing documents or approve projects all carry the potential for charged emotions and political interest. On top of all that, there are the basic logistics of producing and sending out mailers to homeowners. In order to alleviate some of the headache that comes with elections, online voting is gaining popularity, and rules surrounding online election requirements are being detailed in state legislatures around the country.

Thanks for All Your Help, to the HOA Board and Happy Thanksgiving

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Nov 15, 2016 8:00:00 AM


Thanksgiving is more than shameless gluttony and frenzied shopping; it is truly a transcendent holiday, an American tradition open to all, regardless of religious and cultural backgrounds. It’s an end of season celebration of harvest and a great opportunity to take stock of what matters in life and hopefully feel a bit of gratitude for the people around us. In many families, each member takes a turn identifying something they are grateful for before digging into the turkey feast. While your HOA likely is the last thing on your mind during the holiday season (unless you’ve been cited for leaving decorations up for too long), consider this post a reminder to be thankful for the HOA Board, even if you don’t make mention of it when it’s your turn to say what you’re grateful for at the table.

3 Things You Need For Mobile Compliance

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Nov 9, 2016 7:33:00 AM

1. Must be truly mobile: 
Some compliance programs run in a mobile web-browser, which means that internet connection must be strong and uninterrupted for the program to function. An application that is “truly mobile” lives locally in the mobile device.  While true mobile applications may require internet connection to download data and synchronize captured violations, they offer the luxury of working even in rural, remote, or developing areas.  With browser-based mobile website applications, you run the risk of losing your work, or being unable to continue working when your connection is weak.  With a true mobile application, you have the stability and versatility of working offline and syncing with the main database later.
