Session will discuss association liability, business judgment rule, future legislation, mandatory reserve funding, property insurance and planning. 

NAVIGATING FAIR HOUSING

A growing challenge for managers and boards of directors is to consistently pursue rules enforcement without triggering a claim of discrimination. Learn how to avoid a claim, process a claim should you receive one, and how to educate your board regarding Fair Housing Laws.

NUANCES OF NUISANCES

Living in multifamily units presents challenges including noise, smoking, parking, etc. What is a nuisance and when does the HOA need to get involved? Find out how they can be avoided and resolved. 

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ADUs

A new California law designed to help alleviate the affordable housing crisis authorizes owners to convert their garage or even add a small accessory dwelling unit to their yard – even if their HOA prohibits such changes. However, HOAs aren’t powerless, and there are proactive steps that can be taken to mitigate some of the adverse effects. Here’s what managers in California need to know. 

PLAYING REF IN CIDs

Knowing how to handle conflict without taking it personally is crucial for long-term success in this industry. Whether it is conflict between neighbors or within the board of directors, there are tips you can use to succeed with getting to the “win-win” outcome. 

AVOID CATASTROPHE AND PLAN PROPERLY

To reserve or not to reserve? Learn Civil Code requirements for reserves along with strategies to educate your board on the reserve study and what to do if components are not listed (i.e., balconies). 

TIPS AND TRICKS OF TIME MANAGEMENT

Do you find there is not enough time to complete the ever-demanding tasks of this industry? Learn from experts tips they use to stay on track with minimal stress. 

COVER YOUR ASSETS

Poorly drafted contracts can present significant legal and financial issues for community associations. Contracts drafted by vendors will often protect their own best interests, and the boilerplate language they include could expose the association to liability or limit its right to recover in the event of unsatisfactory work. This session will explore the proactive steps an association should take prior to executing their next contract in an effort to mitigate its risk exposure. 

BALCONY 101 

SB 326, otherwise known as the Balcony Bill, has presented a lot of questions. Learn what steps you should take to protect the communities you manage.
