The following topics have been proposed as issues of substance for the National HOA Member Citizens League Study Committees,
- Have homeowners given their consent to agree to the governing documents and to the waiver or surrender of their rights and freedoms as citizens?
- Are fair elections procedures needed to protect the democratic right to vote for HOA directors and/or officers?
- Are HOA members being denied due process protections as are provided public government?
- Is the right for HOAs to foreclose on homeowners an effective and legitimate method to collect assessment debts?
- Are HOAs being given special consideration by state legislatures by not subjecting the boards of directors to punishments and monetary penalties for violations of state laws and the governing documents?
- Are HOAs state actors?
- Are HOAs de facto but unrecognized political governments?
- Should HOAs be made subject to municipality statutes rather than corporation statutes?
- Should directors be required to take courses in government and nonprofit management?
