Given that the fiscal health of the association has a direct impact on every member of the community, proper management of financial operations is an important element of building better communities. This Best Practices Report, published by the Foundation for Community Association Research, includes performance benchmarks for how to establish financially healthy communities as well as case studies that illustrate the implementation of those benchmarks in real communities.
