When Distributed

The annual policy statement must be distributed to the members within thirty (30) to ninety (90) days before the end of the association’s fiscal year. (Civ. Code § 5310(a).)  In addition to making this information available via this Internet LOG (as noted above), the POA also distributes this information in the printed version of the LOG, typically in the FALL.



How Distributed

The annual policy statement must be distributed to all members by individual delivery. (Civ. Code §§ 5310(b), 5320(a).)  An association is permitted to distribute the annual policy statement in one of the following forms: (Civ. Code § 5320(a)(1)-(2).)


  1.  The full annual policy statement; or
  2. A summary of the annual policy statement. The summary must include a general description of the content of the annual policy statement, as well as instructions on how the member may request a complete copy of the annual policy statement at no cost to the member. Those instructions must be printed in at least 10-point boldface type on the first page of the summary.

Notwithstanding the above, if a member has requested to receive association reports in full, the association must deliver the full annual policy statement to that member, rather than the summary referenced above. (Civ. Code § 5320(b).)
