We have over a dozen accredited classes but here are our most requested. If you don’t see a topic you’d like, ask us!

Available Courses:

CONVERSIONS AND COMMUNITY ASSOCIATIONS:

In today’s real estate market condominium communities may be converted from apartments. This class will cover why this makes a difference in how the association operates, roles of the developer and community manager and how the conversion laws will impact association rights.

GETTING UNSTUCK—COMPANY, ASSOCIATION AND LIFE OPERATING SYSTEMS:

Is your company or association stuck? Do you find yourself attending meeting after meeting with no outcomes? Is there a disconnect between what is said and what happens? Do you have great ideas but find they never get implemented? If so, you may be lacking an operating system that addresses purpose, people, proof, problems, process and power. Through a self-assessment we will explore the 6Ps and learn steps that can be taken to address any weaknesses.

CREATING BOARDS THAT WORK:

Using an assessment from The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this facilitated program explores the basis of organizational politics and board failure. It helps managers identify barriers to effective, functional boards and explores tools they can use to overcome board dysfunctions.

INSURANCE DISPUTES – KNOW YOUR RIGHTS:

This course is designed to an overview of the obligations of insurance companies based on policies, state law, insurance commission rulings and case law. You will learn what to do if you encounter one of the 8 most common unfair claim settlement practices and how to protect your community association’s rights.

SITTING FOR A DEPOSITION—EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK:

During this fun, interactive class, we will cover the basics of what a deposition is, why it is taken, the parties and its importance in litigation. We also cover how to prepare and effectively answer questions.

MANAGER TESTIMONY IN COURT—HOW TO BE A STAR ON THE STAND:

This class explores the players in the courtroom and 10 rules for effective testimony in any kind of case a manager may be asked to testify in. We cover common obstacles that witnesses face and how to overcome them.

GUIDELINES FOR PROPERTY MANAGER DOCUMENTATION:

Discusses what documents constitute the “Association’s File” and steps you can take to ensure that the minutes, correspondence, and other association records protect, rather than harm, the association’s legal rights.

CONSTRUCTION DEFECT LITIGATION—THE ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE PROPERTY MANAGER:

This program discusses the roles and responsibilities of the property manager in the timely identification of construction defects, including how to protect yourself and the management company from liability. Suggestions for setting up a successful investigation by the engineers will also be discussed, along with tips for disclosure and communication during and following a construction defect lawsuit.

THE MIGHTY MILLENNIALS – LEARN HOW TO HARNESS THE SKILLS OF MILLENNIALS ON YOUR BOARDS, COMMITTEE OR IN YOUR OFFICE:

As you interact with more diverse ages on your boards (21-81) it’s likely you may become frustrated with how those outside your age group process, communicate and implement decisions. Join us for a fast-paced, hands-on walk-thru millennials’ needs, wants and how you can work best with them.
