Associa Northern California president, Scott Hubbard, CMCA®, AMS®, recently wrote an article for the Community Associations Institute (CAI) California North Chapter September 2022 newsletter. Read below.
Hello, CAI-CNC Members:
Fall has officially arrived in Northern California. I, for one, am having a hard time coping with the fact that summer is behind us. But it does help knowing that while summer is in the rear-view mirror, a few of my favorite chapter events will be held between now and the end of the year. This includes the Annual Golf Classic on October 10th, the Annual Legal Update on November 17th, and the Annual Gala on December 8th. I know I will see many of you at these great events, and I look forward to making great memories.
We also just completed some very successful events and I want to take a moment to thank those that made it possible.
Our annual Bags and Brews cornhole tournament was held in late August, and it was a huge success for the second year in a row. Thanks to the entire Committee for all their hard work to bring us such a fun event. The new location at Drakes the Barn worked out great. The Bay Area and Central CA Chapter hosted the Northern California CAI Legal Forum on September 8th and 9th at the Oakland Marriott. It was so fun to see members of both chapters back together in person again, and the speakers and presentations did not disappoint. If you were not able to attend this year, please consider attending this great event in 2023. Thanks to the Bay Area and Central Chapter for bringing us such a great event. Finally, if you were able to attend the education luncheon on September 15th, you know it was a success. Thank you to Suzette Beck, CMCA®, AMS®, with RealManage, and Steve Weil, Esq. with Berding|Weil for an excellent presentation on navigating social media.
The Annual Board of Director Election for the California North Chapter will be held in November and nominations were due in by September 19th. There are four open positions this year. Of the four positions available, one must be a Manager, one must be a Business Partner and the other two positions must be Homeowner Leaders. Three of the positions will be elected to serve until December 31, 2025. One Homeowner Leader will be elected to a one-year term until December 31, 2023. Please keep an eye out for the ballot, which will be sent out soon via email. As a member of the chapter it’s important that you vote, so please take a few minutes to fill out your ballot.
As I mentioned above, we still have some great events coming up this year. I look forward to seeing many of you soon!
