Roberts Rules of Order

If you are in a HOA and you need to know more about Robert's Rules of Order, click here. There is a chapter in the book just for HOA's.

Over the years Robert McConnell Productions has written articles about various problems that arise in organizations and how to solve them.  Since more and more people, about 64 million, live in covenanted communities—Condos, HOA’s, and other types—we have decided to include more about this important trend that is happening in our country.  In the new edition of our book, Robert’s Rules of Order Simplified and Applied, 3rd edition, we have included a chapter especially for those who live in homeowner associations.  We are also adding articles by blogger, Deborah Goonan, who learned by the school of hard knocks, how difficult it can be to live in corporate America’s version of “home sweet home.”  We hope that you find these blogs and our suggestions at the end of the blogs helpful to you as you navigate through your homeowner association experience.  If you need to contact us with your questions and concerns, please e-mail us at

Can an HOA board limit an owner's rights to practice his religion, put out campaign literature for running for a board position or political signs? Does this corporate entity have the right to deny anyone of his constitutional rights? This article cites three court cases where the courts upheld the First Amendment and reversed a board's decision that denied it.

In your HOA, what do you value most: security, compliance, or personal privacy?

Can homeowners get rid of their HOA?
If you are in an HOA and want to dissolve it, this article explains the process. If you have property is common it tells the steps that you can take to dispose of it. However, unless the covenants are also rescinded they will continue for they go with the land. In dissolving an association you are just dissolving the corporate structure not the covenants. That is a separate process.

Who says that all new construction must have HOA governance?
A common myth in those who build developments is that it must be built as an Homeowners Association. Although this is what is happening, individuals can have power if they will choose to use it. Don't buy in these developments. If enough people would stop buying a very clear message would be sent. This article addresses this very important issue.

HOA Voting Representatives: the Undelegates
HOA's often have a system of delegates instead of homeowners who go to the meetings and vote. These delegates may not be chosen by the homeowners. This is representation without consent of the governed. These delegates make decisions that are binding on all often without input from the owners. Watch out! You could end up paying for things never thought were possible.
