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.
