HOA 101

Number 1 of a 5-Part Series

On Tuesday, May 6, the Council of Stewards conducted a Town Hall meeting and training session on “Homeowner Association 101” for those interested in better understanding the North Carolina laws regarding HOAs and how the St. Alban’s Square Neighborhood Association works. This is all part of a goal to improve communication and understanding between owners, residents, and COS and committee members.

Unfortunately, this meeting was not well attended. Kelly Hawkins of Main Street Management Group had prepared an excellent detailed outline of key issues surrounding our community. In order to make sure this information reaches a bigger audience, the newsletter will include this material in a series of five articles, one in each of the next five newsletter issues. These topics will be as follows:

Look for Article Number 2 in the series of 5 articles on HOAs in your September-October newsletter. The articles will be archived in this area of the web site.

The Association wishes to thank Kelly Hawkins, our Association Manager at Main Street Management Group in Cornelius, for this outstanding and informative program.
