CAM Mash Up: This Week (March 18 - 24)

Posted by Meigan Montoya on March 18, 2019

Here's a quick rundown of all of the happenings in the CAM industry in this week's CAM Mashup!

Following the Rules

There's a saying by Pablo Picasso that goes: "Learn the rules like a pro."

I know, that's not the whole quote--but Pablo Picasso was not a community association manager or a board member, and you aren't allowed the break these rules like an artist, because breaking these rules doesn't end in world-wide fame and adoration, it ends with hefty fines or jail time.

So, learn the rules like a pro. Those rules are dictated meticulously in your association's governing documents, and in your states legislation and/or regulatory boards.

There are times when these two sets of information may conflict, so it's good to refer to both and follow the right steps to determine which regulations to which you should adhere. 

What it Means to Manage

Joining the community's Board of Directors can feel a lot like you've taken on the management role for yourself. You're handling homeowner engagement and interactions, you're managing the community financials, and all for no pay and often, no thanks (we think you're fab, though!)

Having a manager to rely on can alleviate the stress of board member life as long as they're doing what they can to be the best manager for your community! Whether that's working with a management company or hiring a manager for your self-managed association, they make the work a little easier, and are a strong asset to every community board.
