- Budgeting and Community Association Financing
Stephen Parker, of PIE-CSC, discussed Budgeting and Community Association Financing. The firm has created a
financial simulation model of a community association's operating and capital reserve accounts that analyzes cash flow,
income expenses and reserves. A community association must program expected community repairs or improvements in
future years with expected impact of inflation into its reserve budget. The association must have a strategy to both know
where it wants to be and how to get there.
Associations should review both long term (30 years) and near term (5 years) budgeting. Trends in the out years should
be positive, while the focus stays on the near term. They should also perform engineering studies on a recurring basis
to ensure that projections of long-term expenditures stay on track. The association must maintain a relationship of trust
between the board and the home owners. In addition, by law, the homeowners association board members have a legal
fiduciary relationship to maintain and care for the association's commonly owned assets.
