Keep Residents Informed With A Community Association Monthly Newsletter
As a community association, it is essential that you keep your residents informed of everything going on in the community from events to maintenance, and whether you just have a few tenants or you have hundreds, the most simple way to do this is through a community association monthly newsletter. Whether you create a print newsletter that is put under people's doors or a digital newsletter which has become increasingly popular over the past couple years, it is up to you to make sure that your residents have all the information they need to happily reside in your community.
We've put together a list of 3 reasons you should have a community association monthly newsletter:
- Share Important Updates: If the pool is going to be closed over the weekend or if there is going to be maintenance done on the elevator, residents need to know ahead of time. Use your monthly newsletter as a way to share everything going on in the community to ensure that residents are kept in the loop and that you won't have to deal with tenants who are unhappy because they planned a BBQ on a day that the grills were being replaced.
- Show the Voice Behind the Association: You want your tenants to think of you as more than just the “association” that makes the rules. Show them the person behind the association, and interact on a more personal level. Sign monthly newsletters with a name and invite readers to contact you if they have any more questions. Residents are more likely to be good tenants if they feel like you're on their side, not against it.
- Build a Sense of Community: Use your monthly newsletter to invite residents to community events, share photos and stories from past events, and generally just build a sense of community. Some residents would probably jump at the chance to be featured in a newsletter, so that take to your advantage and give tenants some insight into the lives of their neighbors.
Having a monthly newsletter is important for every business, but it is especially important for community associations. It's up to you to make sure that your residents are happy and informed, and a community association monthly newsletter is one of the easiest ways to do this. It keeps residents in the loop and helps reassure them that the association is there to make their community experience better and safer, which makes your job easier and keeps your pockets full.
