Condo Living – 3 Sides to Every StorySeptember 16, 2020 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM - webinar
The recent roles of owners and directors have changed. With owners/directors working from home, looking out their windows, down the hall and being more aware of their condo community day-to-day operations, communication between owners, directors and property managers is growing at an exponential pace.
The session will cover how owners, directors and property managers each play a role in being an ally.
It will cover balancing the mental health of each role and the opportunity right now to make the community even stronger.
- Legal - Why does it need to be considered in almost every situation?
- Property Management - Why does it always seem like a form letter, and not personal?
- Director - Why aren't they "on call" every day? I want an answer now!
