The Business of Running Your Community


Do you serve on the board of your association?   Are you considering serving?   Whether you are a seasoned board member, a recently elected  board member or unit owner seeking to understand more about how an association runs, this course is for you!


Your community is your home and it is probably your biggest investment.  But did you also know it is a business?  The role of a community board is to protect and increase property value in an association.  In addition, their role is to preserve the quality of life in accordance with state & federal laws and association documents.  This is accomplished by operating the association, maintaining the common

property, and enforcing the governing documents. 


Becoming a good board member is a process; but, you can minimize the errors and the time it takes you to get up to speed by attending this seminar.   We have gathered together a group of industry professionals: legal, insurance, maintenance, financial and capital planning to share their expertise.  In addition, this course provides the opportunity to interact with fellow board members and share your challenges and your triumphs!
