Welcome to 2020! Doesn’t it feel strange to be on the other side of a decade? While it may feel a little weird, now is the perfect time to set goals—New Year’s Resolutions, of sorts—for the upcoming year for your HOA, be them long or short-term.

While we stand by the importance of this topic, it’s not the only thing your HOA will need to prepare for in the coming months.

Homeowners associations (HOAs) are run for the benefit of those who live there; that’s an indisputable fact.
