THIS IS AN INVITATION TO JOIN MHOA!!

My Fellow Residents,

  As concerned residents in many of your communities we would like you to join the MHOA homeowners association.  Please read this letter over and see the attached Membership Brochure.  If you decide to join and already have a MHOA Chapter, just give your membership application to your President who will ensure it gets to the MHOA State Office or you may mail it to the MHOA State Office as shown on the membership form.
  You can make a difference with your membership.  The sheer number of members show strength to the community managers, owners, and legislators.  MHOA is YOUR Homeowners association and we are here to protect your rights and settle any disputes between you and management.
  Dues are only $20.00 a year.  That is only $1.67 a month, a bargain for all the volunteers that fight for your rights.  The Legislation Action Team (LAT), State MHOA Board, The Attorney General's Office (AG) and your very own Chapter are all volunteers (except for the AG's Office).
  NOTE:  Membership Renewals - Remember, when a MHOA member gets a renewal notice it is one month before your anniversary date (The date you joined MHOA). If paid on the anniversary month, a subsequent notice will not be sent out, unless they wait for over a month to renew and send in their $20 dues. If you are not sure of your anniversary date for renewal of your memership, contact MHOA office at (360) 373-2436 Monday-Wednesday 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., or e-mail us at mhoaoffice@mhoa.net.
  By supporting MHOA you will continue to have someone fighting for your rights as homeowners.  The State MHOA Executive Board's presence may not be felt personally in your community (unless you have a problem), but they are always working for you in the background.  Below are just a few of the free help and advice services available you, thanks to MHOA.
