Business Partners Success Workshop

Business Partners Success Workshop

Attention Business Partners
This workshop is designed just for you!

Learn from a team of industry veterans on how to
maximize your WSCAI membership!

Whether you’re a seasoned community association industry veteran, new to the industry, or have others in your office that might benefit from learning more, this dynamic workshop will help you better understand the unique differences between community associations and apartments, how the role of the community association manager differs from that of a multi-family property manager, and better understand the inner structure of community associations and the process for bid approval and expenditures.

You’ll also learn how economic and other market conditions can impact the industry, how to recognize business resources and leverage other WSCAI partnerships to identify new business opportunities, best position your products and services, and maximize your WSCAI membership.

There will also be an opportunity to hear ideas from attendees and network virtually with other Business Partners.

Organizational Clarity: Building an Intentional Culture

What investment gives you a guaranteed return? What will fire up your teams and give you unparalleled performance in your organization? What’s the key to keeping your best people staying and improving your organization?

The answer Building an intentional culture.

The concept of culture, like leadership and teamwork, has been around for several decades. But we still don’t quite understand how to “do” culture. Let me show you how.

We’ll focus on the foundational element of culture, which is organizational clarity. This is where we shed light on short term, long term and everlasting points of clarity within our organization, so we’re all rowing in the same direction.

Let’s get clear!

What Is This Thing Called LAC?

The LAC or Legislative Action Committee is a group of WSCAI member volunteers who review drafts of bills, work with lobbyists, and provide testimony to ensure that laws passed in Washington state promote the interests of community associations. LAC volunteers represent different facets of community association life: homeowners, community managers, attorneys and other Business Partners.

The LAC’s Mission: To positively influence legislation that directly impacts community associations and their residents.

 

What has the LAC done for you lately?

  • Earlier this year, the LAC worked to defeat two harmful construction defect bills that would have left homeowners in small condo communities without warranty protections.
  • In July, the LAC worked with the Governor’s office to permit fines for covenant violations while still prohibiting fees and interest for late assessments.
  • Currently, the LAC is working to make remote meetings and electronic voting permanent for community associations. The LAC wants the convenience and time- and cost-savings of these online capabilities to continue after the pandemic emergency ends.

 

What can you do for the LAC?

  • Your testimony helps capture the attention of lawmakers and illustrates how proposed legislation impacts the people who live in community associations.
  • Your donations ensure the LAC retains professional lobbyists who keep the channels of communication open with policy makers and government officials.

You’ve Been Sued, Now What? The Dance Between Insurance & Litigation.

Getting sued is bound to happen eventually for every association. As your attorney will tell you, anyone can sue you for any reason. There is no prerequisite that a suit must have merit before filing, anyone can file a suit against anyone else, for any reason. This presentation will walk you through what to do when you get sued whether it’s the association, the manager, or the individual board members, and the two people you should call right away. . . your attorney and your insurance broker.

When you get sued you often have a short answer timeline and a whole bunch of things need to happen in that timeframe or you risk losing by default, so come learn what to do now, so you are prepared if and when you get sued. We will discuss the types of insurance coverage and how they come into play during litigation, the common pitfalls for associations and boards, and a few ways suits frequently play out.

Reserve Studies and Funding: Basics, Costs, Inflation and Legislation

Reserve Studies are both art and science, proceeding along defined methodologies and National Reserve Study Standards promulgated by CAI in 1998. With the goal of minimizing special assessments and financial surprises, judgment and experience also weigh heavily as the reserve study provider considers all aspects of anticipating the future maintenance, repair and replacement needs within a common interest development. What is abundantly clear is the risk of those surprises, special assessments and lower property values increases as reserves percent funded decreases.

Inflation is currently at a 40-year high near 9%, with typical reserve component projects inflating much higher. The current economic conditions will have a profound effect on associations in many ways during the foreseeable future. This program will guide your understanding of inflation resources to inform associations and their professionals how to map a strategy to deal with it in an informed manner.

Legislation in Washington has an evolving history broadly affecting community associations of all sizes and types. From the Horizontal Property Regimes Act of the 1960’s, Condo and HOA Acts of the 1990’s, 2005 law addressing construction defect legislation, 2008 reserve study requirements at the urging of the WSCAI membership, to the WUCIOA effective 2018. Our laws are complicated and will likely change again over time. As buildings and their infrastructure age and the associated risks increase – highlighted by the worst-case scenario collapse of Champlain Towers South – it is important to form a collective vision of where our laws need to evolve going forward. This program will connect the dots and provide firsthand insight into the legislative process and thought-provoking steps for consideration.

Practical Understanding of Your Financials & Annual Audit

Financial statements present the financial condition and performance for your association. As board members and managers, it is vital that you understand what you are reading. Learning how to anticipate what to expect, and how to track and understand financial trends will enable you to be well versed in understanding and interpreting financial information.

Identify relationships between balance sheet accounts and revenues and expenses. Understand what information and the importance that the other reports included in your monthly packet provide.

Learn how to ensure the audit process is efficient, effective, and timely. Learn why audited financial statements might vary from your monthly financials. Understand what is involved in the audit process and who is responsible.

From Contempt to Commitment: Repairing a Fractured HOA

Technology has connected us to more people than ever, yet our local communities continue to struggle with disharmony and back-channel conflict. Association leaders are charged with making hard decisions that reflect community input and preferences, but what happens when community members’ only contributions to meetings are cynical and derisive, if they even show up at all?

For associations struggling with a divided community paralyzed by dysfunction, all is not lost. The path to harmony is closer than you think and requires neither a large financial investment nor surrendering your community to endless petty skirmishes. Attendees will leave with practical tools you can deploy immediately to improve your association’s ability to get things done with more cooperation, greater member participation, and less conflict.

The presentation will include real-world examples from leaders throughout the CAI community, and a Q&A period for direct answers to your most pressing questions.

Collection, Enforcement, and Rules, Oh My!

Contrary to the belief of many, rules and regulations are some of the most difficult to draft and one of the most important governing documents an association has. This presentation will focus on the most common perils and pitfalls of rules, as well as recommended strategies for amending an association’s rules and regulations, including enforcement and collection policies, to meet an association’s unique characteristics and needs, to take advantage of new statutory provisions, as well as eliminate any conflicting language with applicable statutes or superseding governing documents.

Our goal is to provide a high-level overview of what to expect when an association decides it’s time to adopt new rules as well as the clues to look for to know that it’s time for new rules. Join us in a discussion of this important topic and to hear some of the craziest enforcement stories we have had and learn how we navigated those tricky waters!

Are Your Home Market Values Being Impacted By Today’s Technology Trends?

Technology advancements for buildings and services are continually improving. The explosion of new buildings in our area are incorporating the latest technologies. As condominium units in your community sell, do prospective buyers view your community as being old and behind the times? Key things buyers are looking for today are ways to power their electric vehicle; how to prevent major water losses costing thousands of dollars; security and surveillance to prevent theft, and even to the point of how you welcome guests into your building. If these are not technologically current, then buyers may be looking elsewhere, impacting the values of homes in your community.

The Association Is A “10” But They Don’t Know How To Utilize Their Management Company

The partnership between a board and their management company is often a love-hate relationship and one of the most misunderstood in the industry. Having a management company is a great benefit to the association, supplying invaluable guidance, best practices, and a helping hand. However, often a lack of understanding over what the roles of both the board and management company are and the authority and responsibilities of each have led to increasingly antagonistic relationships between the two.

Join us as we explain each party’s roles and responsibilities, where the authority for those arise from, and what tips, tricks, and skills each side can utilize to create and maintain a successful working relationship.

Whose Authority Is It Anyway? What Can Be Accomplished Through A Rule, Board Resolution, Or Amendment?

Community association boards of directors often know what they want to accomplish to better serve their community, but how it can be accomplished is generally less clear. While certain goals can be met by adopting a resolution, others may require amendments to governing documents approved by owners.

This presentation will discuss what options are available to community associations seeking to adopt a new regulation or procedure, and when it is necessary to use the amendment process as opposed to the adoption of a resolution or rule. Attendees will learn what questions need to be asked to determine when an action can be authorized by directors alone, when owner votes are required, and when to get attorneys involved.

In addition, this presentation will explain the hierarchy of governing documents so that community associations are equipped to identify conflicts and determine how to proceed in the face of conflicting provisions in their respective documents, or Washington law.

Boards: Cover Your Ass(ets) Understanding & Minimizing The Risk Of Loss Or How To Sleep Better At Night.

Recently, economic fears have driven concerns about costs and motivated some to seek illicit financial gain through the coffers of community associations. Major losses to association’s assets can often be avoided or mitigated with due diligence and risk management from the board. Although management companies do their best to act on the association’s behalf, there are steps the board should take to protect themselves and the association.

This panel of industry experts will provide an overview of significant causes for loss disrupting the community association industry and how boards can avoid becoming a target. Whether it is unauthorized access to your bank accounts, cyber criminals or vendors filing liens on property due to non-payment, what are best practices for board members to protect the assets of the association and minimize risk?

The program will include important topics, case scenarios and strategies for board members to utilize to avoid exposure to loss including management of funds, management control of vendors, contractual safeguards and risk financing.

Stormwater Inspections – Ensuring Safety & Compliance

The rainy season is almost upon us, and along with the rainfall comes city inspectors checking up on private stormwater systems and requiring maintenance to be completed. Is your community prepared?

Stormwater systems are often overlooked but are a critical asset for managing rainwater in and around your property. When foul weather arises, are your stormwater structures clean, in good repair and prepared to keep your building safe? Stormwater inspections should be part of your routine maintenance regimen so you know how your system will perform when you need it most, and so that you can stay in municipal compliance, avoid fines, and help keep pollutants out of the Puget Sound.

Our panel of professionals will discuss the latest municipal stormwater regulations, early warning signs, what to inspect and when, and share some expertise in how to get the most from your stormwater system–and the team inspecting it. Don’t leave your property in puddles this year. Join us and help keep you and your community high and dry this winter.

Suitcasing Prohibited

WSCAI’s “SUITCASING” POLICY

CAI has a NO-TOLERANCE policy regarding “suitcasing,” which describes the practice of non-exhibiting companies or individuals soliciting sales or sales leads, and/or representing their services or soliciting seminar participants for conflicting social activities. Non-exhibiting business partners participating in the seminar as attendees or speakers are prohibited from soliciting business in or after sessions, or in the seminar location.

Violators of these policies will be ejected from CA Day if applicable, and charged $1,000, which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor, or sponsor at any future CAI events.
