"I am curious about the experience of "associate members" - people who live outside the community but who have a special relationship, and who participate in some meals and activities." Our experience has been somewhat similar to that of Sharon. We had associate members before occupancy and a few continued afterwards. All have since "faded away." While there are friends of members in the larger community and they are always welcome at meals or events, their association is primarily with the member rather than the community. We did sell 5 lots and we could have sold more. All the purchasers built on them almost immediately. However, these are not associates, they are full members. Their dues are less because they are not responsible for maintaining the condos, just the common areas. Their requested work contribution is also slightly less for the same reason. In all other respects, they have the same rights and obligations as any other member and their community participation is about the same as for the other members. Lot ownership was built into the CC&Rs and Bylaws. I recommend that you not worry about how associates will be handled after move in. If you wish to sell lots, it's completely viable, but consider treating lot owners as full members, not associates. Larry Miller Oak Creek Commons
