The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many community association residents to stay at home. They’re working remotely. They’re establishing home-based businesses. They’re spending more time using association common areas. They’re placing increased pressure on com​munity services. They’re finding the tiniest details to complain about. How can community managers and board members respond to or support the newest homeowner demands? T. Peter Kristian, a CAI past president and a large-scale community association manager, leads an expert panel through a discussion started by “Challenge Accepted” and “Home Is Where the Work Is”—articles featured in Common GroundTM magazine’s November/December 2020 issue.
