Resignation from volunteer HOA board.

Hi,

I am currently the president of our volunteer HOA board in my building. I was volunteered for the position and I no longer am interested in acting as board president. From what I am reading, I have absolutely not obligation to continue as a board member as long as I formally resign.

Does anyone have any experience with this? ANY information is helpful. Thanks!

  • mj

    Yes, your bylaws probably stipulate what steps are required to resign, or you could wait until your term ends.

  • Jeff Photographer

    I simply announced my resignation as a HOA board member when I had had enough of repeated disrespectful behavior, rude comments and bullying tactics by our board president and her cronies.

  • You simply resign.
    I'd inform the board that the next meeting will be your last. Sooner if you wish. You're under no obligation at all.
    However if you want to be on the board in the future, a decent notice and a polite withdraw is recommended.

    The service was decent, the atmosphere was indeed conducive to being social, and the cocktails were well done. However, the few times I tried the place the food itself was underwhelming. It'll be interesting to see what comes next.

Have you switched from Comcast to RCN?

I am thinking of switching from Comcast to RCN in order to save money. Has anyone switched from one company to the other? Have you seen good savings over comparable packages? I went to RCN's website like I was going to purchase new service and put everything in my cart. I tried to make it really close to what I have now as far as Premier Digital, Phone, Internet, Tivo, extra digital box, router, modem, unpublished number, etc. Have I been paying too much this long? The monthly estimated bill (which includes estimated fees and taxes) was 30% lower than Comcast!! Trying to decide if it would really be worth it. Thanks for the feedback!!!

  • Sadly, you have to rotate now every couple years. Comcast has a better DVR feature. But them changing their name to Xfinity didn’t change their horrific customer service. Be glad you have options. If you are in an Xfinity only building, you’re in purgatory

    I switched from Comcast to RCN three months ago. Tomorrow my new Comcast boxes should arrive and I will cancel RCN immediately. I switched because I was paying Comcast $125 and RCN could keep me at $115. Not too much of a savings but I was sick of Comcast playing...

    I switched from Comcast to RCN three months ago. Tomorrow my new Comcast boxes should arrive and I will cancel RCN immediately. I switched because I was paying Comcast $125 and RCN could keep me at $115. Not too much of a savings but I was sick of Comcast playing games with my bill. Since I signed up with RCN, I have been billed $170 monthly and they really have zero interest in making it right. The best I was offered was less services still @ $120. I would have been happy with that IF they had been willing to go back and adjust my monthly bill for the past 3 months. However, they could care less. I had one rep offer me a $100 credit (thank you). However, when I called to see where that was no one had record of the promise and were not willing to do anything about it. I should have known better when the installer arrived and announced there was a $35 install fee, It's fair but was not disclosed when I arranged set up.
    Comcast is a challenge but RCN has made me run straight back to them. I have been nothing but lied to and overcharged by RCN and they have ZERO customer service or concern to make it right. I will deal with Comcast and watch their billing any day over dealing with this nightmare.

Also, I like that it's very diverse and there are people there in all ranges of fitness levels. The manager's name is Chris. If interested, go in and speak to him. He's a great guy.

  • Sarahdonis Nearly 30 years in Edgewater; love RP & A'ville

    65 was made the ‘official’ age for retirement at a time when the average life expectancy was 68 - 70. I’m not sure what the current life expectancy is, but it seems to me that I recall it being much closer to 80. In some ways, it is unfortunate that the ‘official’ age is so low (said as I near 60😕). Social Security was never intended to fund the last 20+ years of active healthy lives.

Hi. Right now i have a studio close to Broadway and on Granville. I need a 1 bedroom and saw one on Granville but I'm looking for Aug 1st and they have to rent July 1st so it may be rented by the time i can move in. I saw another 1 bedroom on Bryn Mawr a little further from the Bryn Mawr CTA and half way towards Clark St.

How does the Bryn Mawr area compare to Granville? I will be traveling in the evenings. Also how do the neighborhoods compare?

I love the stores and accessibility around Granville!

Thanks!

  • Thank you for all the information and positive comments! Looking forward to my move!

  • headsup not available

    Granville is a great place to live - you will enjoy the new buildings when they are finished - and the new restaurants are in place - you will see the art scene continues to grow. Granville is a growing street - Bryn Mawr ?? Granville is close to transportation and the lake - another plus is Granville is part of Edgewater - the place to live, work, and play. Granville and "Hip" come together.

I came from a back room and saw him walking down the front steps and I thought it may have been a delivery driver, so I opened the door (oops) and he came flying back up the steps with the whole spiel of "Just need to see your energy bill, etc." I politely told him no thanks, and he just kept talking over me. Told him "no thank you, I'm not interested", and closed the door. He then went huffing across my lawn hollering about how black men in Chicago don't get any respect...
So, that was pleasant.
He was wearing a blue polo, tan pants, lanyard around his neck and had dreads.

Just an FYI to the people in the Pratt/Wayne area.

The President of the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce has decided it would be a good idea to proclaim that "Rogers Edge [sic] was a bad marketing idea, and is not a real location in the City of Chicago!"

    There are no set inspection schedules for porches in Chicago. The inspection that was done was probably by a private company the owner hired when he purchased the building, so nothing official or legally binding. That porch was attached to the building with nails and not lag bolts as is required via Chicago city code. Also the WGN story has been amended to correct that there actually has been no lawsuit filed as of the publication date. They merely spoke with a lawyer about what the legal ramifications might be.

    http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/local/warning-you-should-check-your-deck-after-two-recent-porch-collapses

  • If I was a landlord I would write into the lease the number of people allowed on a porch. Thinking back of that porch collapse in Lakeview years back that killed many .

  • Totally agree. Chicago city codes specify that number, so by including it in the lease it transfers at least SOME of the liability onto irresponsible tenants.
