In an active HOA board, it seems there is never enough time to get everything done you’d like to. This is especially true based on the current economy and the need to accomplish goals of the association. The goals may be set by the week, month, or year, not to mention daily tasks, so it’s important to find the most efficient ways to get as much done as possible in the hours given and for little cost.
Organizing and setting priorities in board meetings is the best way to make sure important jobs are completed first. Make a list of all projects needing to be completed and rank them in order of importance. Looking at your to-do list as a whole can cut back on time wasted on smaller projects that could be spent furthering larger goals. Obviously you want it all to get done eventually, but highlighting and agreeing on the top priorities is most efficient.
Break Up Large Jobs
As a member of an HOA board, you likely often face large tasks or projects to complete that are overwhelming. The key is to agree on how to break these into smaller sections to better manage the workload. This simplifies the project and keeps everyone confident and on track. Also, using experts in certain fields can help take away some stress and answer any questions about the details.
