Being a HOA board member can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, but it is not without its challenges.

 Often many board members don’t realize exactly what they have volunteered for. It’s often said that being an association board member is the only job that you’ll ever have that has no formal education requirements for obtaining a position and has no built-in training program to help you learn as you go!


Southern States offers quarterly training sessions for HOA board education. Our training sessions will increase board members’ knowledge base so that they can make vital, informed decisions for the betterment of the community. 

A senior property manager will be assigned to your community to conduct HOA property management education. We also invite professionals from other fields, including attorneys and CPAs, to help lead the training sessions.

To be an effective board member, it's crucial to understand the concept and structure of a homeowners' association (HOA). In general, an HOA is a nonprofit organization set up to help run, manage, and maintain a neighborhood, building, or another collective of homes. People who belong to an HOA pay annual or monthly dues, which the HOA uses to maintain shared spaces and carry out other association duties, like rules enforcement, meeting management, and financial planning. An elected board of volunteers runs the HOA on behalf of all homeowners.


Our board education sessions cover the following areas:

Basics of a Homeowner’s Association

Role and Duties of the Board

Role and Duties of the Management Company

Basic Financial Management for Associations

Fiduciary Responsibility and the Business Judgment Rule

Legislative Updates


We check all the boxes while thinking outside them!
