FREE Town Hall Webinar Series: Managing Through COVID-19 (Part 1)

FREE Virtual Town Hall Series: Managing Through COVID-19 (Part 1) Now On-Demand!

Thursday, April 9, 2020 @ 12-1 pm

What’s the difference between essential and non-essential services? The answer to this question has become critical to community managers and board members during these days of uncertainty as the public health crisis created by the highly contagious Coronavirus continues. With stay at home orders in place, communities are struggling with how to provide services to residents in a safe and efficient manner. Open or close common area facilities? Have meetings or postpone? How and when to communicate information? Keep onsite staff? Mail and packages? Common area maintenance and cleaning? Accommodating guests? Rules enforcement? Assessment collection? Quarantine for those who may become ill? These are just a few of the issues where discussion and guidance is much needed, so please join us for a virtual town hall with a panel of top industry experts and leaders.

FREE Virtual Town Hall Series: Managing Through COVID-19 (Part 1) Now On-Demand!

Thursday, April 23, 2020 @ 12-1 pm

Our inaugural Town Hall was a smashing success! Over 150 people tuned in to get some information and guidance on managing our communities through the COVID-19 crisis. With only an hour, there was not enough time to cover all of the important topics and answer all of the questions received. So, we bring you PART 2! The focus of this session will be: association financial solvency, business continuity, honoring existing contracts and the feasibility of moving forward with scheduled work. What is the best strategy and approach for these issues, given CDC guidelines and the Stay at Home orders that remain in place? Please join us for a second virtual town hall, featuring the same panel of top industry experts and leaders.
