Coping with an Inflation Crisis in Reserve Funds

Construction Cost Index inflation is far outpacing the already hot Consumer Price Index Inflation. As condominium boards look 30-years ahead for their work plans, what strategies can be implemented now to accommodate shortfalls in the reserve fund and mitigate the impact going forward. What inflation rates should be carried in the short term? What steps need to be taken to implement special assessments and loans? How can boards truly be confident in the plan laid out for them? Join our panel as we explore these issues and more.
