Seriously dude, how boring is your life that you're "excited" to pay dues, voluntarily went through a contract and want to join an HOA board?
ETA: Side note: if you're that interested in writing a check, I'll PM you my address. It will go to maintiaing your property values too as I will promise not to move in your 'hood.
Mr. Ed-itorial, not sure why you have "excited" as I did not use that word.
I also might have been tweaking the h8ers a bit.
As to voluntarily going through a contract...you don't read them before you sign? For realz, that's stupid. Not only did I go through the HOA CC&Rs, consult an attorney friend that also lives under the same HOA, but I gave the financials an initial look to satisfy myself they had a proper reserve study done and were funding the depreciation. I went over them again just to make sure all this hot air was for naught...and it was. As to why join the board...well, has not everyone spent much bandwidth telling me how HOA boards screw the homeowners? So which would you rather be, the pitcher or the catcher?
As to my boring life...Ed, in all reality, I've spent great efforts to make my life boring. It's much underrated, IMO, and is also my goal at work.
