30 years ago I began my professional career in the Portland area as a successful engineer in the steel industry. At the same time I also dealt in real estate investing for my own wealth building.

And even though HOA elections are not typically barraged with candidates, the membership does care what the board does. When the board doesn't do it right, some members simmer at a slow boil, some bellow and others beat the tar and feather drums. The picture isn't pretty for well intentioned boards.

A truly effective and perceptive board understands the need to keep business transparent. This "glass house" style of management is difficult for some directors to deal with since it seems…
