Maryland Homeowners' Association's Mission
The mission of Maryland Homeowners' Association (MHA) is to advance good governance, civil discourse, best practices and informed citizen participation in the organization and administration of condominium associations, homeowner associations and housing cooperatives. MHA is a non-profit, non-partisan, volunteer organization committed to the protection of homeowner rights through education and public policy initiatives that promote greater accountability, transparency and communication between the leadership of common ownership communities and their members.
MHA welcomes homeowners interest and participation in our organization through volunteering and assisting us in our endeavors. MHA welcomes like-minded friends who want to enhance and expand our ability to assist other owners in understanding their rights and responsibilities as owners in a common-ownership community. If you can help, attend a MHA meeting and speak to one of the Board Members. Thank you in advance.

Maryland Homeowners’ Association Meeting of October 3
We were pleased to host Mary Jo Rogers, a supervisor in the Maryland Insurance Administration. Ms. Rogers provided valuable information about the kinds of homeowner insurance with special attention to condo insurance, which requires an individual homeowner purchased policy and the master association policy providing complementary coverage. Ms. Rogers also told us about the efforts her office makes to guarantee insurers are fiscally sufficient to provide creditable coverage to their insured by enlisting special coverage by more substantial companies when a problematic insurer may pose problems to an insured. Ms. Rogers provided valuable help to specific questions posed by members who 'Zoomed' in for our meeting. Attendance was 26 members, which makes this one of our best-attended meetings.
