2018 Homeowner Education

Whether you live in a condominium, homeowners association (HOA) or other type of community the Board Leadership Development Workshop  highlights what every board member needs to know to serve effectively. This is also an excellent learning opportunity for community association managers.

The first session of the Board Leadership Development Workshop on March 8th was a great success! Thank you to our workshop instructor Steve Casey (Jones Walker LLP) and also thank you to Mildred Lanier and The Green Team for sponsoring the refreshments!
