Communications Committee Report

Following the November 2016 Annual meeting, the Board voted to create a Communications Committee at its regular December 2016 open Board meeting.  MPHOA has three primary means of communicating with owners and residents:  the MPHOA web site, our periodic newsletters, and e-mail “blasts” to all owners and residents for single-focus issues and news items.

A fourth method has been in place for several years, but is relatively unknown and is little-used.  The method is via “Google Groups” – essentially an informal community electronic bulletin board and is not an “official” means for the Board to communicate MPHOA news and is not endorsed by, nor used by, the Board to communicate with the community.  Click on the following link and it will take you to Google Groups.  On your first visit, you will need to request/create an account:

Our intent, starting earlier this year has been to upgrade/replace the MPHOA web site with an improved appearance, more content and features, and improved timeliness and usefulness to owners and residents.  The Board hopes an enhanced website will attract more traffic and resident use than it has experienced in prior years. Board member Brian Hult, our “webmaster” is leading this initiative.

We are now pleased to announce that we have recently launched that replacement to the old website.  The new website is at:  http://www.mcleanprovincehoa.com.

Our new website gives us greater flexibility to remain up-to-date and will be a more useful, and more utilized resource going forward.  The website will have a document storage feature, a news feed, a calendar of important HOA events, an e-mail contact system to reach the Board and National Realty partners, and is mobile and tablet-friendly.  We intend to make regular updates and further improvements, so please provide us with your feedback and whether there are other features and enhancements that you would find useful.

The Newsletter, published once in 2016, will be published more frequently in 2017 – this Spring edition is our second publication for 2017.  The Newsletter is distributed electronically to all owners and residents whose e-mail address is on file with our Property Manager, Mary Lockhart of National Realty Partners (NRP).  Should your e-mail address change, please provide the new e-mail address to Mary at MLockhart@NRPartnersLLC.com .  If you know of neighbors who currently do not receive electronic correspondence from NRP, please refer them to NRP to have their contact information added to our master e-mail list.
