Selecting & Working with a Management Company

Community association boards have many responsibilities, but few are more important or more challenging than the selection of a professional manager.

Finding a good manager isn’t difficult; there are many. The challenge is finding the “right” manager for your community, and then creating a working

relationship that allows the community to benefit fully from the skills, knowledge and resources the manager can offer.

This guide is intended to help boards negotiate the selection process more easily and more confidently.

Community Association Insurance

Insurance has been described as a maze, and with good reason.  The terminology is unfamiliar, the issues are complex, and the decision-making process, for board members, can be intimidating.  This guide won't tell you everything you need to know about insurance; it may not answer all of your insurance questions.  But we hope it will answer enough of them to help you understand the risks your community faces so you can make informed choices about the insurance it needs.
