This week in Community Association Management

This week in Community Association Management:

Today, we decided to TAKE A WALK around the neighborhood in our RUBY SLIPPERS. The streets looked all BRIGHT, SHINY and NEW, probably because the community recently decided to TAKE ACTION and STREAMLINE FOR SUCCESS! Yes, we are excited, at least until it's time for COLLECTING DEBT. I'm not sure if I am WEAK OR STRONG, so I guess I'll put that off until WHITEBOARD WEDNESDAY. Confused? Don't be! It's this week in CAM management!
