3 Benefits of Hosting Holiday Events in Your HOA
Holiday events can be used as a tool to build a sense of community in your homeowners association. If you’re debating whether hosting a holiday event is right for your association, it is important to know that there are many benefits of doing so and, with a great management team, a minimal effort required from the board.
Bringing Everyone Together
The holidays are all about bringing everyone together, which is why hosting a holiday event is the perfect occasion for residents to build a sense of community. It is a great opportunity for homeowners to gather in one place and get to know a new friendly face or build lasting relationships. Providing an occasion for homeowners to meet one another, can make homeowners feel included and united as a group. This is ultimately to the benefit of the entire association.
Getting to Know the Board
Holiday events also open the door for homeowners to become familiar with their board members. Let’s face it, many homeowners are either too busy or feel disconnected and don’t feel motivated to attend board meetings. A holiday event focusing on positive aspects of the community is the perfect environment to create a personal connection with homeowners.
Organizing and inviting homeowners to an event facilitates communication between homeowners and the association. While many might skim past an email regarding regular HOA business, most will want to find out more about the festivities. This provides an excellent way to open a line of communication and establish the best means of communicating with homeowners which can translate to more interaction in the future.
