About Us

If you are on the board of your homeowner association (HOA), we have a lot in common. The HOA Leadership Network was founded in 2018 by Lakeville resident Lynn Boergerhoff, who was an active HOA leader at the time, as a way to connect and support HOA board leaders through education, collaboration, and research. In 2023, Lakeville resident Mark Luis Foster, also an active HOA leader, joined the team as a business partner to help govern this rapidly growing organization.

As HOA leaders, what we do is important. We govern our HOAs, administer our HOAs finances, and build a tight community comprised of HOA homeowners. While our HOAs may be different, we have much in common, which means we can learn a lot from each other’s experiences.

We encourage you to attend our monthly meetings to meet other HOA board leaders and learn from local experts. Please subscribe (it’s free!) to receive our weekly newsletter, filled with information about HOA issues, and content about our upcoming events.

Benefits for HOA Board Leaders:

  • Educational content presented at monthly meetings
  • Networking with other board leaders
  • Access to specialized educational resources, including podcasts, training material and more
  • Weekly updates via email on common or complex HOA issues and topics
  • Invitations to special events
  • Opportunity to share experiences with other leaders and brainstorm solutions to complex issues like infrastructure, maintenance and environmental issues
