Kuester Management Group highlights ways that HOA board members can better serve homeowners and their community.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - eTradeWire -- Homeowners associations (HOAs) are run by a board of directors that are appointed by members. The board is entrusted with managing funds and making decisions that are in the best interest of the community and members as a whole. Kuester Management Group has released a statement to the press regarding how board members can be proactive about thriving in their role and effectively leading the association.

"One of the easiest ways to become a better board member is to take advantage of professional development opportunities," says Bryan Kuester, President of Kuester Management Group. "Always be learning and enhancing your knowledge. While you may not become an expert or know everything, building a strong foundation provides a strong start. Take courses in areas where you feel you could improve."

Another way to improve board service is to understand the rules and expectations, says Kuester. Periodically review the association's governing documents and any changes that have been made in recent years. Know where to turn for answers when members ask questions rather than guessing, and uphold the standards of fair, ethical board service.

Also, make it easy for members to share their ideas and opinions – and actually listen to their feedback. It is their dues that keep the HOA funded and able to make changes, repairs, and upgrades. Give them a voice and encourage them to get involved. Board members should let homeowners know that they are valued and respected.

"Whenever board members are making decisions for the association, they should take the time to consider all options and look at the big picture," says Kuester. "What will benefit the greatest number of people and have a positive impact not just now, but in the future as well? Prioritize projects and work with professionals, vendors, and members to develop the most effective solutions."
