About the Book

All over the country people are thrust into positions of authority with little or no preparation. They are responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars worth of real estate, make decisions affecting the lives of hundreds of people and are responsible for spending hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. Who are these people? Why they are newly elected directors on the board of a condominium or homeowners association. Whether they are serving because of their own self-interest or for the greater good of the entire community, most people are ill prepared for this task and there is very little written on the subject. This book is an overview of the most significant and frequent issues, which board members and property managers deal with on a day-to-day basis. This handy reference is written in plain English and provides practical, no-nonsense advice on dealing with both the routine and complex problems arising out of homeowner association governance.
