As 2016 comes to an end, I want to thank all of you for following Independent American Communities (IAC). Special thanks to those who pass along interesting articles on important issues affecting housing consumers in Association Governed, Common Interest Communities.
You’ve inspired me to publish hundreds of blogs in the past year. There’s no shortage of consumer information, HOA politics and news, and HOA horror stories. It’s my personal goal to “connect the dots” so that readers can begin to see the Big Picture, and gain a deeper understanding of why there is so much dysfunction, corruption, and interpersonal conflict in residential common interest developments.
When we understand how to identify HOA problems, and why they occur over and over again, we’re in a better position to formulate solutions and alternatives, and ways to prevent dysfunction.
Looking back over the year, here are some highlights of IAC blogs you’ve been reading and sharing with your family, friends, and colleagues.
Happy New Year. May 2017 be a year that brings common sense change and restoration of rights for Americans, no matter where they happen to live.
