New HOA president acting like ‘Lone Ranger’

After the election period, there is an organizational meeting. At this meeting, the officers of an association is elected by the board members. For many associations, this is a very short meeting. Prior to the first scheduled board meeting of the newly elected board, associations should consider holding an educational workshop as to the role, responsibility and authority of the individual board members, as well as the officers. This would be the time period to explain to all of the board members that you work as a unit and not as the Lone Ranger.

HOA board helps residents during COVID-19 crisis

A number of years ago, I asked one of the hosts of a local TV show’s “HOA Wall of Shame” why the program does not feature, on a monthly basis, an association that is “doing it right.” Her response was that we expect associations to do it right. Unfortunately, the continuing negativity on this show presents a picture of association management that so often is not a realistic one. As we all know, there are two sides to any story. At times, because of the privacy issues in Nevada Revised Statute 116, an association cannot fully present its side on a television broadcast.
