We often hear a common question: what can an HOA president do, and how much power do they have. This question is a really great one and filled with nuances that can be hard to parse if you don’t know much about how an HOA works in the first place.
The first thing to understand is that an HOA president does not have the ultimate control. An HOA board is made up is typically made up of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and often a member-at-large.
All of these positions are necessary to maintain order, proper flow, and accountability. For this reason, an HOA president must answer to the needs of the board and community, and votes must be cast for most things before approval.
The President has a multitude of responsibilities such as scheduling, attending, and running board meetings, initiating meeting agendas, signing association documents, and being the point person for all official HOA business.
However, these responsibilities work together with the standing responsibilities of the entire board and benefit the central goal.
