Welcome to the American Beach Property Owners Association
The purpose of the American Beach Property Owners’ Association, Inc. is to create, enhance, improve, promote, preserve, protect and perpetuate a healthy community for property owners of American Beach socially, economically,
and aesthetically, and do such other things as are incidental to the specific and general welfare of the American Beach Community as enunciated by the membership of the Association and its Board of Trustees.
The American Beach Property Owners' Association, Inc., (ABPOA) is a 501 (c)(4) social welfare organization. Think "Homeowners Association" without all the rules and regulations. This means that while it is tax-exempt from federal income taxes on the income raised or earned donation, contributions to ABPOA are not tax-deductible.
Membership is voluntary, unlike many more structured homeowners associations, and there are no fines levied for non-participation.
