HOA Community Volunteerism

HOA reasons to volunteer

The importance of volunteerism can’t be overstated. It builds social bonds, reduces isolation, provides the satisfaction of accomplishment, decreases feelings of powerlessness, gives residents a sense of control, and makes community associations vibrant and thriving places to live. This is the foundation for building a sense of community. Associations would have a hard time existing without Condo and HOA resident volunteers; they’re the lifeblood of any community.

Ten reasons to volunteer for the community:

  1. Protect your self-interests. Protect your property values and maintain the quality of life in your community.
  2. Correct a problem. Has your car been towed, or do you think maybe maintenance has been neglected?
  3. Be sociable. Meet your neighbors, make friends, and exchange opinions.
  4. Give back. Repay a little of what’s been done for you.
  5. Advance your career. Build your personal resume by including your community volunteer service.
  6. Have some fun. Association work isn’t drudgery. It’s fun accomplishing good things with your neighbors.
  7. Get educated. Learn how it’s done—we’ll train you.
  8. Express yourself. Help with creative projects like community beautification.
  9. Earn recognition. If you would like a little attention or validation, your contributions will be recognized and celebrated.
  10. Try some altruism. Improve society by helping others.

Committees are the backbone of many successful associations.  Successful larger community associations also recognize the value of the partnership between volunteers and a professional manager or management company.  Get on board, volunteer to serve your condo or HOA.
