What is the best way to keep HOA properties up to date? Having meetings to discuss the important aspects that need discussion of course. Open lines of communication are the way most things continue to work in a viable fashion.
The question that this poses is how do you get members to attend HOA meetings? With everyone's busy lives, is there a way to pull members into meetings? Productive meetings only happen when members are there to discuss and have conversations.
If you're looking to boost the attendance of your HOA meetings, we have some suggestions for you. Start next month off right with an elevated attendance.
Long Meetings Deter
Your homeowners have enough going on in their busy lives. To have productive meetings you need to keep it short. Of course, fit in everything that needs discussion, but don't allow it to linger too long.
To have more homeowners attending meetings, discuss how to keep it simple. Figure out the best way to get your point across while maintaining the integrity of the meeting.
Carrying on too long will make your attendees bored or take up too much of their time.
Include Refreshments for Attendees
Something as simple as snack catering will go a long way. By providing refreshments, your attendees have something to do with their hands while you all discuss your options. It gives them something to snack on while they consider the changes that need to be made.
Refreshments have been a long-standing aid to encourage more individuals to stay in places longer. The last thing you want to hear through your meeting is the sound of growling stomachs. Plan accordingly and keep the attendees refreshed.
Topics of Interest
Of course, there is business that needs to be tended to within these meetings, but, keeping the subject matter engaging is a great way to keep the focus. Try to maintain topical situations that fit your entire audience, not just the business aspect. Leave business talk that can be done behind closed doors alone.
Engage with your members and find out which areas they find to be important. Plan your meeting to include those topics that your homeowners want to be a part of. HOA attendance will balance greatly on what gets spoken of within the standard meetings you hold.
HOA Meetings Should Include Maximum Attendance
For your HOA properties to flourish and continue to be maintained and grown, your HOA meetings need to be attended. It is the responsibility of the board to make sure that the community is being heard and getting their chance to speak. Run your HOA meetings to benefit the community as a whole and listen to each of your members and their concerns.
