Moving into a new home is exciting. Meeting new neighbors, strolling through the neighborhood, and organizing a new space all contribute to that tingly-inside feeling. With a clean slate, new residents of a homeowners’ association (HOA) are eager to start fresh. And as community leaders, it’s the board of directors’ job to foster and nourish that positivity with a warm welcome.
To make a good first impression on behalf of the board and the community at large, it’s best practice to promptly deliver a welcome packet, or a homeowner’s manual, when a new resident first moves in. A keepsake residents will likely reference again and again, a welcome packet should include all the information, resources, and tools needed to make HOA life enjoyable.
