Webinar: “Not All Rules are Golden… The Drafting, Changing and Enforcement of HOA Rules”

Webinar: “Not All Rules are Golden… The Drafting, Changing and Enforcement of HOA Rules”

In this presentation, Kelly Richardson will discuss the basic as well as advanced concepts in rule creation, amendment and enforcement. Creating, amending and enforcing HOA rules are the bane of the manager (and volunteer director’s) existence. Rules can be a great help to a community and build community spirit, or they can create more problems and foster divisiveness and negativity… and even litigation. The very fast-paced presentation will be 60 minutes in length, including 10 minutes for questions at the end of the prepared remarks. This course has been approved for 1 Continuing Education Credit for Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) by CAMICB.  Registration link at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1598374741632408065....
