"Embracing Change" - Process Management in the Association World
Change is fundamental to our lives. So is chaos. There is good and bad change, there is good and bad chaos. The changes that we encounter in the association world today are in many cases, driven by forces beyond our control and beyond our scope of responsibility - yet they fall into our laps. Process management is a methodology that brings order out of chaos, a rhythm and beat to the daily grind and provides tools to make for more effective management.
"CAM 201: I've got my CAM license, now what?
After a property manager takes the Community Association Manager ("CAM") course, passes the required test and obtains their license, there are many issues which come up in everyday management which are were not addressed in their CAM course. The purpose of this course is to address some of those fundamental issues, and provide managers with the next level of education necessary to successfully manager their associations. This course will address reviewing association governing documents, managing vendor contracts, maintaining preparing financial records for an association and executing membership and board meetings.
"I'm On My Own?" - Disaster Planning for Associations and Managers
Whether it is a hurricane, flood, severe thunderstorm, tornado, earthquake or some other catastrophe, members of community associations and the managers themselves really need to understand that they will be on their own to deal with the aftermath of of one of these events. Associations cannot rely on their managers - they will need to rely on themselves, and managers will need to rely directly on themselves. Natural disasters upset the order of things in terms of how managers react to situations on behalf of their clients and our members are sorely under prepared to deal with these disasters as well. Disaster planning takes the manager on a journey of reality through the types of disasters that can befall a community and the many elemental steps, including an aggressive, current, living emergency services and management plan to help the community through such an issue.
The Real World of Condominiums - Maintenance, Insurance and Repairs
This Course will utilize a case study of a fictional condominium association that is dealing with pervasive water intrusion issues. The case study will include a fact pattern as well as examples of condominium governing documents and applicable statutory or other legal authority. The instructors will demonstrate to participants how to analyze the fact pattern within the case study, review and interpret the condominium's governing documents, apply applicable legal authority to the facts and advise the Association's Board of Directors on the best course of action. The course will address topics such as insurance and deductibles, maintenance, identification of responsibilities for repair and maintenance, reserve studies, special assessments, loans and potential claims against developers or contractors.
