Condominium association boards are addressing ongoing building maintenance as well as capital improvement project repairs and replacements while balancing financial concerns of owners.  What can communities do to secure funding and how can boards plan for future expenses.  This two part conversation with industry professionals will show boards how to get the money they need now and discuss best practices in funding association reserves.



The forum has been approved for 3 hours of Continuing Education Credit.
