The Condominium President:
"The Quirks, The Perks, and... (The Jerks)?"

Thursday, October 12, 2002


  • Time: 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
  • Place: Centennial College Conference Centre, Carmelite Room, 940 Progress Ave., Scarborough

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

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

It's Here!

This third 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 third in a series of popular President seminars. The first two sessions entitled "The Good, The Bad and...(The Ugly?)" and "The Good, The Better and ....(The Worst?)" focused largely on the role of Directors and the skills they required. This third session will explore more specific issues - as requested by participants of the second session. A panel discussion will also be included during which problems facing your corporation will be examined, from the perspective of the Manager, the President, and the Lawyer.
