February 2014 Eblast
Welcome – NMHOA is very pleased to welcome nine home owners’ associations who have joined NMHOA this month. We welcome seven HOAs from Oregon: Bella Vista Estates Cooperative, Horizon Homeowners’ Cooperative, Green Pastures Senior Cooperative, Saunders Creek Homeowners’ Cooperative, Via-Lea Community Cooperative, and West-Side Pines Cooperative; as well as Rockvale MHC Tenant Union from Wisconsin, and Park Plaza Cooperative from Minnesota.
NMHOA also welcomes 18 new or renewing individual members from California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, and Nevada who have subscribed to NMHOA since the beginning of the year.
Your continued support allows NMHOA to continue its important work providing resources and services to manufactured home owners throughout the United States.
Thank You for Supporting NMHOA – NMHOA is only as strong as its membership. Thank you for all you do to keep NMHOA growing from strength to strength. If you want your state or HOA to be highlighted in a future Eblast be sure to contact Ishbel Dickens (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know of the great work that is happening in your state. She cannot share your successes if she does not know about them! Your success stories inspire others so please share.
Policy initiatives – During this month’s Legislative Committee call we learned of several bills that, if passed, would make a significant difference in the lives of manufactured home owners. In Oregon, an opportunity to purchase bill has passed the House and is now on the Senate floor for further consideration. When enacted this would allow home owners in Oregon an opportunity to make an offer when their community is up for sale. A bill circulating in New Jersey’s Assembly would limit the amount rent could be raised for seniors on fixed/limited incomes. This bill would protect seniors in all rental situations, not just those in manufactured housing communities. If you would like to know more about these bills or would like to participate in NMHOA’s Legislative Committee, please contact Leg. Comm. Chair Tim Sheahan (email@example.com) for more information.
Last words for February – Congratulations to Frank Pojman on being elected President of AMHRO the statewide home owners’ association in Ohio.
Look elsewhere on this site for contact information for all NMHOA state association members.
Congratulations are also in order for two NMHOA Board members – at its February meeting the NMHOA Board voted to have Jesse Martinez fill the President position for the remainder of that term, and voted for Tim Sheahan to become First Vice President.
