We need a significant shift to ensure community managers are treated with respect and courtesy. It all starts with setting reasonable boundaries for mental and physical health. Here are a few boundaries to establish to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
Mental health issues impact community associations in many ways including deed restriction enforcement, Fair Housing Act violations, and potential liability for negligence. At a time of continuing economic and social unease, how should community association board members and managers resolved community conflict that involves mental illnesses?
Managers who earn CAI’s Association Management Specialist (AMS) designation demonstrate a higher level of commitment to their career and the community association industry. Kimberly Anne Mosey, CMCA, AMS, a community association manager with KC Property Services in Huntington Woods, Mich., recently became the 11,000th person to earn the AMS designation.
No matter the location, I was reminded once again that the business of managing communities is fundamentally the same. Be it Chicago, Madrid or Dubai, our goal at CAI is to deliver best practices that make communities successful and bring professionals together so they may share experiences and learn from each other.
CAI is only as good as the people and foundation on which we are built. CAI President Jessica Towles reflects on the importance of community building and looks ahead to the priorities of 2022.
