Coping with the New Marijuana Laws
In November 2016 voters in Massachusetts and Maine approved the recreational use of marijuana. Lawmakers in New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont are considering statutes legalizing recreational marijuana in those states, as well.
The prospect that condominium residents may be smoking, growing and even selling marijuana raises a host of thorny legal questions and challenging governance issues for association boards and managers.
This webinar will address among other questions:
Can associations prohibit the use or possession of marijuana?
Will existing smoking bans cover marijuana?
Will existing insurance policies cover marijuana-related damage?
Can boards fire employees who fail drug tests?
Approved for 1 continuing education hour for CMCA recertification.

Construction Contracts: What You Don't Know Will Hurt You
Large construction projects are complicated and stressful, tension between boards and vendors is often unavoidable and litigation is all too common. But the litigation isnt inevitable.
Look behind many construction-related lawsuits and you will find a poorly drafted contract, lacking the clarity that can avoid misunderstandings, and often leaving associations with flawed projects and without sufficient remedies to correct the problems.
This webinar will explain the essential components of a well-drafted contract, providing the protections associations need and reducing their litigation risks. The speakers will cover:
Project administration and oversight
The role of the engineer
Project design and construction quality
And much more.
