Prior to selling a planned community, a developer forms a Homeowner Association (HOA). Articles of Incorporation for the HOA are filed with the Secretary of State in the state where the association is located.

Once an association is formed, a set of bylaws is developed and adopted. Requirements for the association’s board of directors are outlined in the bylaws, and may include the number of board members necessary to run the association and their terms of office.

The most common board positions for a HOA are President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Member at Large. We’ve created a free guide with descriptions of each of these board positions. We hope this helps define your role as a board member of a Homeowner Association.
