The purpose of HOA Member Services is to provide valuable information and resources to members and management personnel of homeowner associations in a fast and efficient manner that will educate and assist them in connection with the management and operation of their homeowner association, promote member involvement, enable associations to operate more efficiently and economically, and enhance enjoyment of the HOA experience.
Background to Company Formation
From his background and experience as an attorney and an owner of properties located within common interest developments, Larry Szabo, the President of HOA Member Services, has developed extensive knowledge about laws affecting common interest developments and the inner workings of homeowner associations and how they function. From this history, he has learned that the people involved in homeowner associations, from members who are bound by extensive legal documents (i.e. bylaws, declarations, CC&Rs, and rules), to officers and directors who are vested with the responsibility of prudently managing and operating their association, rarely have the educational background and experience to enable them to fully comprehend and appreciate their rights and responsibilities as association members and as officers and directors of homeowner associations. As a result, they are generally very dependent on the expertise, advice, and assistance from more educated and experienced professionals such as attorneys and property managers. Ironically, even though it is a lack of knowledge and experience that necessitates the use of property managers and attorneys, association directors have the ultimate responsibility for properly managing and operating their homeowner association.
Larry has also learned that, because the cost associated with the use of attorneys and professional management is a considerable expense, frequently individual members and associations will avoid utilizing a property manager or attorney. This may save money in the short term, but it also may result in higher cost long term problems that result from insufficient knowledge of laws, regulations and the requirements of an association's governing documents. In order to bridge this gap, Larry recognized the need for a vehicle to: (i) provide information and resources to members of homeowner associations, and their management personnel that would help them to better understand and deal with legal and operational issues pertaining to homeowner associations; (ii) create greater interest and participation in homeowner association governance; (iii) facilitate and expedite access to resources that are necessary for the proper performance of duties and responsibilities; (iv) and enhance member enjoyment of their HOA experience.
Thanks to the development of the internet, the ability to deliver valuable information and resources to homeowner association members and management personnel in a fast, efficient and economical manner has become a reality. HOA Member Services is the vehicle for the delivery of that information and those resources. Proper use of this website will enable us to fulfill our mission "to provide members and managers of homeowner associations with general information and resources that will educate and assist them in connection with the management and operation of their homeowner association, promote member involvement, enable associations to operate more efficiently and economically, and enhance enjoyment of the HOA experience."
