April Monthly Message
Dear SNHA Homeowners,

Spring has sprung! This is the time of year for new beginnings, new opportunities, and new life! 

We wish you and your families good health as we bid winter farewell.

Remember, April weather conditions are variable as winter conditions are still a potential in Vermont. Prior to traveling, please visit the VTrans Facebook page for road conditions and delays.  https://www.facebook.com/VTransontheroad/
HOA Software Partnership: AppFolio
SNHA is very excited to announce that we are moving toward a cloud-based HOA software called AppFolio. Through this one platform we will be able to manage payment collection, online maintenance requests and work orders and so much more! Later this month, you will receive an invitation, via email, to activate your new homeowners’ portal.

The following links will provide you an introduction and overview of the AppFolio software:

SNHA Homeowners Survey
The SNHA Owners Survey closed on March 15th. We had an enthusiastic response from owners who took the time to thoughtfully fill out the survey both online and a few through the mail in option. In total, 144 owners returned a completed survey! In addition to the multiple-choice answers, owners made the effort to type or write a total of 236 long response opinion answers to those questions which allowed for that. We will be presenting the survey results this July 2 at the SNHA annual meeting. As promised, a random drawing was held among the first 75 responders for the “early bird prize". The winner was Richard Miller in Mountainview 1-20. Congratulations to the Miller family! They will receive a $250 dollar Visa Gift card.
Remember that the drawings for the $500 dollar Visa Gift Card Grand Prize, and the $250 dollar Visa Gift card second prize will take place at the owners’ annual meeting in July. You do not need to be present to win.
