HOW UNTRAINED, POWER SEEKING VOLUNTEERS ABUSE THE HOA SYSTEM
“If you don’t like my using my personal email and the Royden email list to email a personal solicitation announcement, CALL THE POLICE!!!-Jon Nance Royden President!!!! 10-14-16
The following stream of emails, displays the abuse of HOA power when an HOA President, attempts to use his personal email account for a mailing to all Royden HOA members, to advance a personal solicitation request of a “cookie” sale in the neighborhood.
What the stream displays is the individuals’ total lack of understanding of Roberts’ Rules of Order related to the Board of Directors and Presidents’ role in a non-profit organization, the fundamental purpose of the HOA (Common Area Maintenance and Architectural Control), his personal anger at being challenged and lack of sensitivity and consideration of another members concerns about miss-use of the office of president (albeit it is noted that a strong adversary relationship does exist).
While the President is venturing into a personal need for “power of influence” to assist (like his call for a Time Warner Cable initiative he would lead) an obvious personal relationship, disregards that there are 138 other members that have causes that they would want equal time, in the use of the HOA email list. The so called “President is untrained, does not understand his duties and doesn’t know that the HOA does not exist for this personal endeavor or purpose.
The President was out of order, did not understand his role and did not understand that the complainer, also a member, has rights that a “president” should address.
Note the issue of email use was not addressed nor was the statement of the correct Board process addressed. Also, Royden does not have an operative email to address to the Board,,,email@example.com is not operational and should be the ONLY email shown on the website or used!!!!!
What resulted was a curt reply, indicating that the complaining member should “contact the police”. Incompetence confirmed…Recall, this same “President” lied in an affidavit about knowing the covenants and the existence of annual financial reports.
Immaturity, power tripping and a lack of understanding of what HOA responsibility entails and the professional conduct it demands.
Most HOA reform lobbying efforts by HEARNC4U.org and other States have Board of Director training as a fundamental reform….
In this case “PRESIDENT NANCE (he likes the title) would be well served in obtaining this training….Here’s the email stream including the one to the RHA attorney:
