The Roles and Responsibilities of an HOA
Tampa HOA management companies and the homeowners association (HOA) Board members have both shared and individual responsibilities. Because these roles can interlace, it can be confusing to understand where one position starts and another one finishes. At Wise Property Management, we’ve had years of experience as an HOA management company, and can attest to these difficulties. That’s why we’ve prepared a brief overview with the different positions and their responsibilities.

The role of the HOA Board President is to construct meeting agendas and lead all HOA Board meetings. Typically, the president has the control to organize all day-to-day operations within the HOA association, such as entering into agreements or contracts for the sake of the HOA association. The president is also the liaison between the HOA Board and the Tampa HOA management company.
