Successful Association Governance Requires Clear Communication
One of the most effective ways to help increase support of Board decisions is through communication. If the members are informed of the issues facing their community and understand why the Board makes the decisions that it does, then they are more likely to support and comply with those community decisions. In addition, effective communication also allows Members to voice their comments, requests, concerns and ideas so that the Board can make its decisions based on the best interests of the entire community.
To achieve support and adherence to the governance, WPM fosters communication through board and committee meetings, newsletters, private intranets for the board and committees, and Online Services for members to stay abreast of board and committee meeting schedules, meeting minutes, and actions taken.
Association Governance Philosophy
We believe that clearly defining association responsibilities optimizes the Board, committee and volunteer resources. Our management philosophy positions the Board of Directors as the policy making body of the Association. WPM community association managers and members of our leadership team act as advisors to the Board, overseeing governance operations that include:
- Completing regular inspections of the property
- Reporting violations of the Covenants, Rules and Regulations, and the Design Standards
- Providing notice to homeowners whose property is out of compliance
- Working with the homeowner to resolve the issue
