I'm in a Procomm neighborhood and currently serving on the board of my HOA. The agreement requires a certain number of months notice to discontinue the contract. I haven't checked recently how many months it is, as I'm fairly satisfied with them at the moment.

I've been on and off of my HOA board, and experienced several changes of managers at Procomm. In my experience, it matters greatly who the manager is, how satisfactory the experience is with Procomm. Even if your board is not at a time of year it can terminate its agreement with Procomm, it can ask to be assigned to a different manager. That may help.

I once served with a board member who had been on several HOA and condo boards around town over the years and those boards worked with multiple management companies. His opinion was that there are worse management companies than Procomm and none that were much better.

I have no knowledge of the subject, but why do HOA's use management companies? The HOA in my old neighborhood didn't bother with one and it was much less stressful living there. The people were much friendlier overall too but that isn't necessarily related.

There's a lot of administrative hassle with collecting fees, getting repairs done and paying bills... too much for a volunteer to do if there are dozens of members in the association.

Some HOAs, that are bigger than mine, pay employees to do all of that. I doubt that my HOA could get an employee to do what Procomm does for the few thousand dollars a year that we pay them to do it.

Bo, is your list of Board of Directors published on the association website for your HOA? It is not listed on our association website, even after logging in with a password. Instead it says, the list of Board of Directors is private and not available.

My association runs its own web site that doesn't require logging in. Anyone could see the name, address, email and phone numbers of the board of directors.

I know that Procomm offers a web site service that requires logging in. We don't use it. We've had our own longer than they've offered the service.
