Association Members and Business Partners - It's not all in the contract
Instructors: Thomas L. Willis, AMS, PCAM, Association Bridge, LLC
Identifying and dealing with all the stakeholders involved in the management of community associations can be a challenging task. Covenants enforcement, administration of contracts and compliance with the requirements of law are fundamental management tasks. But is understanding those obligations enough? Conflict is inevitable. To be successful long term, professional managers need go deeper. They must develop the ability to go beyond the letter of the law and covenants, manage conflict, and gain consensus, support and cooperation. They must understand the viewpoints and perspectives of others and operate based on those understandings.
