What Does Our Management Company Do?
We receive non-compliance notices from the management company. We send our assessment checks to the management company. We report common area maintenance problems to the management company. So, the management company makes all of the important decisions regarding our community, right?
The management function of the association is administrative in nature. The board is the principal policy-making body which sets policies, standards, procedures, programs, and budgets. Management's function is to carry out these board decisions. The board has the authority and the power to set policies and standards to carry these policies out. It may delegate its authority to implement its decisions, but it cannot delegate its responsibility to see that they are implemented and implemented properly. Management implements decisions of the board and administers the programs, services, and activities of the association within the policies and guidelines set by the board. When communicating with the management company, please keep in mind that although the board has given them the authority to make many of the day-to-day operational decisions, some requests are going to need the approval of the board of directors.
Here are some tips to help facilitate your communication with the board:
* Place your request in writing to the association management.
* Attend the Open Forum portion of the Board of Directors meeting.
* If your request is "non-emergency" in nature, please be patient.
In most cases, management will research the issue for the board and seek what professional expertise may necessary so that the board can make the best educated, business decision possible.
