Transcript

  1. Standing Room Only !Encouraging Participation and Attendance with Home Owner Associations<br />Presented by:<br />Tom Jonez, CMCA®<br />President<br />Plumbline Management Corporation<br />For <br />
  2. The Challenge<br />For many HOA’s, getting people to attend meetings is challenging, if not daunting. Often, despite the Board’s concerted efforts, people simply do not come, and the level of effort seems unjustified by the results. How can Association Managers and HOA Board's summon their resources to get more people meaningfully involved in the process of the HOA Community? <br />
  3. It has been said…<br />"If you lead a parade and no one follows…<br />you are just taking a walk." <br />
  4. A first step is to understand why people do not participate <br /><ul><li>they are not aware a meeting is taking place;
  5. they receive inadequate notice;
  6. they have other commitments;
  7. they have a negative perception of the HOA and/or its Board of Directors</li></li></ul><li>Reasons for low Involvement<br /><ul><li>They believe their input is not taken seriously;
  8. They perceive that decisions have already been made behind closed doors;
  9. They think that the meetings are too time-consuming or boring; and
  10. In some cases, meeting sites are too far away, inconvenient, or inaccessible. </li></li></ul><li>Behind it all…<br />Underneath these very real and very valid reasons lies a deep-seated cynicism: generally, people today do not believe their input makes a difference. <br />..and yet research proves that people tend to support what they help to create<br />
  11. The Real Solution is Believing that individual People have Value<br /><ul><li>A Manager or HOA Board’s fundamental weapon in developing participation is to make people’s input count in actual decision-making.
  12. The Highest and Best solution is to believe in the value of community which boils down to believing and expressing that people are valuable – and actually caring about them</li></li></ul><li>The Solution – Build Communities<br />If I owned a management company…<br />…the company culture would be similar to Morris Management … the goal would be the same:<br />“We Build Communities…”<br />
  13. “We build Communities…<br />Communities consist of people…<br />
  14. Insights from a popular Blog…<br />www.Postsecret.com<br />
  15. I go to a fast food restaurant in another part of town <br />So members of my organic food co-op won’t see me<br />
  16. We accept the love we think we deserve<br />
  17. I only jumped so I’d have a reason to call him<br />
  18. “Our nation is spoiled, corrupt, & ignorant…<br />But I would die to protect it.”<br />
  19. This one is my favorite !<br />
  20. What we can observe from this…<br />People want to be involved…<br />…to be known<br />…to be understood<br />…to be part of something meaningful<br />…to be safe<br />
  21. The Long Term Solution<br /><ul><li>Focus is on Building Community; Building People
  22. Getting to really know people makes all the difference
  23. What do you know about the people around you?
  24. Group Exercise…</li></li></ul><li>Medium-term solutions…<br />Start and end meetings on time. <br />Feed your members. If you provide food for your members, they are more likely to show up!<br />Arrange interesting topics that benefit members. <br />Schedule meetings at a convenient time and place.<br />Greet members as they arrive. Nobody likes to feel left out, and members will not attend if they do not feel welcome. <br />Be enthusiastic.<br />Give away a prize at the end of the meeting<br />
  25. Other Creative Quick-fix Ideas…<br />The best ideas come from the pros…<br />You<br />You<br />You<br />You<br />You<br />
