The Board is responsible for the operation of the Association. Community Management Advisors works within the policies and guidelines established by the Board, the legal documents of the Association, and government regulations to assist the Board in fulfilling it’s responsibilities.
Community Management Advisors is required to advise the Board of the preferred operational procedures for Community Associations, make recommendations on alternative courses of action, and then act on the decisions of the Board.
The goals of our management programs are to protect, maintain, and enhance the value of the community while providing a pleasant living environment for your residents. We accomplish this while recognizing that each Association has its own unique personality. Management programs are tailored to best reflect the needs and desires of the residents of each community.
To achieve this purpose, Community Management Advisors supports the Board in both of its roles which are:
Business Role (Asset Management)
- Providing for the physical maintenance and operation of the common property, such as community amenities, landscaping, and building maintenance.
- Delivery of common services, such as trash removal, financial management including budgeting, assessment collection, invoice payments and investment programs.
Governance Role (People Management)
- Provide a democratic mechanism for self-government through elections and meetings.
- Administer a program of rules, and rules enforcement, to facilitate residents living together in a shared environment.
- Maintain a program of communications and participation through committees, newsletters, social events and educational programs.
The Management programs recommended by Community Management Advisors are designed to be ongoing improvement programs that utilize the resources of the Managing Agent and the Association.
Strengths of a Managing Agent include:
- Relieving the board of handling day-to-day operations of the Association while maintaining an avenue of communication of these operations with the Board.
- Provide continuity and stabilization through transitions of Board or Committee members, contractors, suppliers, on-site staff and residents.
- Provide the Board with expertise on the numerous topics concerning Association operation.
- Maintain trained back-up personnel to meet unforeseen situations.
- Maintain tested procedures for the handling of most situations that arise.
- Act as a buffer between the Board and individual owners for unpopular policies.
