Community Associations From 10,000 Feet
(Not Literally!)

A Refresher On The Basics Of Managing A Community Association In Washington

If you are new to managing community associations in Washington or if you are looking for a concise refresher on some of the fundamentals of managing and operating a community association in Washington, this is the workshop for you!

Community association attorney John Burleigh of Burleigh Law, PLLC will take us on a flyover of community association land where, from high above, you will get a refreshing reminder of some of the key basics regarding the communities you manage.

John will cover many topics including the various statutes and types of governing documents in place to govern community associations, budget ratification, effective enforcement, notice, voting and meeting requirements, and common pitfalls that community managers and Boards encounter. He will address questions like: Is a Declaration different from the CC&R’s? Do Bylaws get recorded? Does the Association need to amend the Declaration or will a revision to the Rules suffice?

This will be a fast-moving, action-packed time you are sure to enjoy. Seatbacks and traytables up as we’re ready for takeoff!

Budget Basics:

Saving Enough For Nine Months Of Rainy Days & Three Months Of Road Construction

You know that old PNW joke, right? We have four seasons. They are rain, rain, rain, and road construction. Well, those four seasons take budgeting and planning. This is the time to start that budgeting and planning, especially for January-December fiscal year. Come learn how to research exactly how much your increases will be in each category, who to call so you can cite your sources, and how to have those tough conversations with boards and homeowners to make sure you ratify budgets so you can actually put funds away for those many rainy days.

Chargeable EVs:
A Scalable Electric Vehicle Charging Program for Community Associations

The demand for electric car charging is growing for every Association in the state of Washington. Recent laws passed by Governor Inslee focus on car charging in Associations and require all new car sales to be electric by the year 2030. As more and more condominium Owners buy electric vehicles, they will want the capability to charge their car at home. How will Managers and Board Directors respond to this challenge? Solutions to this challenge will likely impact your Association’s infrastructure, finances, livability, home values, and quality of life. Our presentation seeks to provide you some tools and insight to find the right solution for your Association.

Asphalt & Concrete Maintenance Solutions for High Traffic Clientele

This presentation will provide managers with the knowledge to identify the common issues and solutions that condominiums and HOAs face with shared parking lots, roads, and sidewalks. Many contractors and proposals look the same. The questions you ask them and the questions they ask you are what determine how expectations ultimately meet final project results. We will walk you through what to look for when you’re surveying your sites and what to ask yourself when developing a plan of action based on those findings.

Deciphering the Declaration —
Maintenance, Damage, & Insurance

Why is it so hard to figure out who pays for damage inside a unit? Join us for a conversation with two attorneys who will discuss the differences between governing document provisions on maintenance of units and restoration of damage in units, and how those distinctions may affect who pays for and performs work inside owners’ units.

Some Questions That Will Be Covered Include:
  • ▸ How do insurance (and other) provisions within a Declaration affect liability (payment) and responsibility (performance) to repair damage, especially when caused by individual owners or equipment that owners maintain (such as water heaters)?
  • ▸ Where should managers look in a Declaration for guidance on how liability and responsibility are allocated in the governing documents for each community?
  • ▸ How can the governing documents be revised or augmented (by amendments, policies, or rules) to change the allocation of risk, cost, and responsibility?
  • ▸ How does the College of Community Association Lawyers recommend that Associations allocate costs and risk through insurance and revisions to a community’s governing documents?
