Call to Duty: Whose Duty Is It?February 28, 2023 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM - Virtual
It’s the perfect storm: water is cascading through your building, you aren’t sure where it starts or stops. Eventually, the waterfall stops (whether on its own or due to intervention), and the cleanup begins!
During these types of trying events, emergency action is needed, and repairs will, no doubt be required afterwards.
Whose duty is it to arrange the emergency action, clean up disasters, repair units or common elements… and who pays for it? What key governing documents are going to guide your decision making?
Join our expert panel as our keynote Director puts these tough questions to the panel, and adds her own tips based on practical experience. Participants will leave with a checklist of key items to consider for such events.

Together, they have worked at understanding complex issues.
