At our recent meeting we noted how many new board members & officers were attending. LACA is excited to offer a class for new board members. It is a session we have been considering offering yearly. We were thinking about a title like “So you have been elected to the board…now what?”
We reached out to Thomas Engblom who spoke at our June meeting and he has agreed to put on an abbreviated version of a Condo Board Leadership Class he has done many times. He is highly qualified. His bio is below.
Presidents, newer board members and anyone else interested are encourage to attend. Thanks to our co-sponsors here is no charge but we are requiring you to go to wmlaca.com to register. You will find a sub tab for registering under the meetings tab. Seating is limited to 160.
Condo Board Leadership Class
Community association board members and volunteer leaders step up to take on positions of service and responsibility. They’re expected to anticipate issues, solve problems, meet the expectations of their residents and protect property values.
This Board Leadership Class will help you become a more successful board member. You’ll learn the role of the board, the president, and other leadership positions, how to recruit and support new volunteers, and effective ways to work with professional managers and service providers.
This class consists of five modules:
Module 1: Governing Documents and Roles & Responsibilities
Module 2: Communications, Meetings and Volunteerism
Module 3: Fundamentals of Financial Management
Module 4: Professional Advisors and Service Providers
Module 5: Association Rules & Conflict Resolution
