An absolute 'must attend' seminar for all concerned Presidents and Directors.

Condominium Presidents and Directors of all types of condominium corporations will benefit from the opportunity to hear essential, practical and meaningful information.

Back by Popular Demand...

This fifth in a series of unique seminars continues to review the role and enhance the performance of a Board President or Director.

To serve on a condominium Board as President or a Director takes a special kind of person. A unique blend of leadership skills, community values and the ability to get along with all types of people is essential in order to gain the respect of the community.

Ideally a condominium Board of Directors would be made up of a lawyer, an accountant, an engineer, an insurance specialist and, of course, a mediator! However, in reality a board is made up of ordinary volunteers trying their best to serve their community and deal with the huge range of issues that affect the lives, homes and investments of their neighbours.

To make the task easier, the Canadian Condominium Institute is presenting the fifth in a series of popular Presidents' Club seminars. Earlier sessions have covered issues such as 'Welcome Packages', "Enforcement of the 3 P's', 'Elections and Removal', Standards of Care', 'The Difficult AGM' and more. This fifth session will examine 'The Difficult Board Member', 'The Difficult Owner' as well as a look at the 'Common Element Alteration Agreement'.

Our Qualified Speakers at this Seminar include:

  • Steve Willerding
    CCI Director and Past President
    YCC #244
  • Jonathan Fine, LL.B., Fine and Deo LLP
  • Richard Pearlstein, RCM, CMOC, ARP, AIHM, ACCI, Northcan Property Management

Why Should You Attend?

A unique opportunity to hear top professionals and experienced condo Presidents speak on a variety of timely, common and current issues.

A great opportunity to network with other condo board members and hear about problems other boards face as well as the solutions that have worked for them!!

Here's A Sample of What You'll Learn...

The dynamic team of Jonathan Fine (lawyer) and Richard Pearlstein (property manager) will present an overview of Section 98 under the Condominium Act, 1998 which deals with Common Element Alteration Agreements. What Boards and Owners need to be aware of when entering into this type of Agreement, will be examined and discussed.

Let's face it, every condominium will at one time or another experience the problem of how to deal with difficult people ­ whether they be Board members or Owners. Experienced Condo Board Presidents, Gerrit Roosenboom and David McCullough will tackle the difficult topics of the "Difficult Board Member" and the "Difficult Condo Owner". Strategies and suggestions on how best to deal with difficult people to achieve maximum results will be shared by those who have 'been there'.

Panel Discussion

The second part of the session will be devoted to small group discussions. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss any of these topics more specifically with the presenters. An informal question and answer period will also be provided as time permits.

Register Early! Space is limited.

Payment must be made with registration.
