2020 was a challenging year that significantly impacted our lives, but millions of residents in community associations volunteered their time and resources to help neighbors, friends, frontline workers, and others in need.
This year has been extraordinarily difficult and stressful, and the election has already been divisive. We may need to work even harder in coming months to build bridges, repair divides, and support each other.
All of us have been forced to adapt and adjust our business operations and daily routines as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we’ve learned some valuable lessons on keeping in touch while practicing social distancing.
Technology has facilitated our lives, but also affects how we communicate. It’s important to make face-to-face time a priority and be more mindful to engage with others, regardless of format, with respect and civility.
