"One of the first things a board member should do is familiarize themselves with the governing documents for their association,"
It can also be a good idea to join a professional organization for homeowners associations such as the Community Association Institute, says Kuester. These types of organizations often send out periodic updates about changes to state or federal laws that impact associations, offer the opportunity to network with other professionals, and host training or educational workshops.
New board members should consider their strengths and where they have areas for improvement. Local organizations or colleges may offer classes on skills such as conflict resolution, time management, accounting, software systems, management, or leadership that can be beneficial. A lot of skills are transferable even if they are not specifically targeted to HOAs.
"Work with your community management company as well," says Kuester. "They are there to help and support you and can offer a wealth of knowledge and resources. Don't be afraid to reach out with questions, ask for guidance, or inquire about training opportunities. They can either provide the answers you seek, or point you in the right direction to find them."
