4 Ways to Recruit New HOA Board Members

Being an HOA board member is no easy job. You represent the entire community and often have to do the hard things that no one else wants to do. Yet, there are rewards that come along with it. Board members have the opportunity to build lasting relationships, they have decision- making power, and they impact the community in a positive way. So how do you find and convince homeowners to assist in community endeavors?

Our Tampa HOA property management company understands what it takes to run an HOA board effectively and efficiently—It begins with the recruiting process. Following are four ways to recruit HOA board members.


If you don’t already, a fantastic way to recruit board members is through a newsletter. Publishing a regular newsletter helps to keep the community informed about important happenings in the community. This is also your opportunity to educate everyone about the different board positions and responsibilities.


Find a reason to get social. Hosting meetings and various events like yard sales and holiday events throughout the year is a proactive way to interact with the community. This gives you a chance to introduce yourself and to learn about your neighbors and what interests them.


As a Tampa homeowners association management company, we know dealing with homeowner complaints can be unpleasant, but looking to the complaints file is a strategic way to recruit board members.Instead of looking at complainers in a negative light, think of them as those who care enough about the community to voice their concerns. Let them know that their concerns are opportunities for solutions and ask if they’d like to help change the community for the better. To change the community one has to become a part of it.


To effectively run an HOA board you need team players that are enthusiastic about the community. Outside of that, to run a board effectively, you need the help of those who possess an expertise in targeted areas such as legal matters, accountants, and handymen. Create a brief questionnaire to get an idea every homeowner’s strengths and interest. With this information, you can approach homeowners individually to convince them to share their knowledge and help their community.
