    2. Click the owner's name when it appears in the list.
    3. Under Contact information, you'll see a button to Send Message.

      If the the association owner has already opted-in, you can send a message here. If the owner hasn’t yet opted-in, you can also send them an opt-in request here.
    4. Click the button, and you will be brought to the Messaging inbox. Type in the message, and hit Send. The message will appear on your owner’s phone as a text message.
