Wednesday | June 5, 2024 | 2 p.m. Eastern

Many healthcare organizations are grappling with how to future-proof their websites in the aftermath of the pandemic and in light of the recent HHS guidance regarding HIPAA compliance for websites. Key questions to consider include:

Does your website provide a consumer-focused experience?
Is the technology HIPAA-compliant and adaptable?
Does your website empower users to engage, with tools like self-scheduling, symptom-checking, and finding a doctor by location?

If not, you may need a major site redesign. But what’s the best approach? Should you start from scratch and re-platform? Or can you replace parts of your stack with solutions that better meet your organization’s needs? Is a composable tech stack with interchangeable solutions a better way to ensure your website meets the needs of your organization?

Join us for a free webinar on Wednesday June 5 at 2 p.m. Eastern where you’ll hear from technology and digital marketing leaders including Best Site Design Platinum Award winners from the 2023 eHealthcare Leadership Awards.

You’ll learn:

  • How to evaluate your current state and define the desired future state
  • Considerations for selecting the right technology
  • Best practices for gaining buy-in from stakeholders
  • How to develop a plan and timeline
  • Why a web steering committee is essential
  • How to measure success
  • And much much more!

How to Make Your Architectural Review Committee More Fair and Effective [HOAleader.com Webinar]

How to Make Your Architectural Review Committee More Fair and Effective

An HOAleader.com Webinar for Condo and HOA Boards

Wednesday, May 15, 2024
2-3 p.m. Eastern

A North Carolina case, Duff v. The Sanctuary at Lake Wylie Property Owners Association, sums up the challenges with architectural review committees—they often don’t have great policies and procedures, and they can get your condo or HOA into big legal trouble.

In Duff, the court held that an HOA’s ARC essentially put homeowners through the motions with no intention of approving their architectural requests. That arbitrariness cost the HOA dearly—$70,000 in punitive damages alone.

Duff isn’t the first case in which an ARC acted improperly, and it won’t be the last. But we can help you ensure your community’s ARC doesn’t land your association in similarly choppy waters—and we can help you tackle the new questions ARCs face today as a result of challenges triggered by new focus on structural issues as a result of the Surfside, Fla., condo collapse.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on May 15, when two community association lawyers will help you understand how you can strengthen your ARC to ensure fewer headaches, happier owners, and a fairer, more consistent outcome.

You’ll get clear and helpful information on:

  • The many different ways governing documents address architectural review (some allow broad powers, others less, some have a separate and independent committee, others don’t)
  • A review of a few cases in various states showing the ways ARCs got community associations in legal trouble
  • Who should be on your ARC and whether you can make changes whenever you think it would improve your processes
  • How to determine which architectural changes need to be approved by your ARC and which don’t—and whether that standard has changed today temporarily or permanently as a result of scrutiny post-Surfside
  • The factors the ARC should consider in reviewing requests—every single time they get a request, along with tips for reviewing applications
  • Whether your ARC or board can control or influence owners’ decisions about whether they can have workers on site inside and outside their homes, and when it might be wise to do so, if it’s possible
  • How you and your ARC members can improve consistency and predictability for owners by creating a historical record to ensure ARC members today, and those in five years, are aware of past decisions
  • How owners can appeal ARC decisions
  • Dos and don’ts when it comes to ARC practices
  • And much more!

In one hour, you’ll receive information you can implement immediately to ensure your ARC operates professionally and consistently—and ultimately that your owners will understand and respect your ARC’s decisions. Register now for this informative event for community association board members.

A new eHealthcare Strategy & Trends webinar for healthcare marketers and strategists 

Thursday  |  April 25, 2024   |  2 P.M. Eastern

CRM is evolving, enabling healthcare leaders to synchronize and prioritize high-value communications that drive profitability and support patients on their healthcare journey.

  • Abhi Sharma, Chief Product Officer, Loyal
Abhi_Sharma

There’s a shift going on in healthcare organizations. CRM is no longer a technology solution used exclusively by marketers for patient acquisition — and that’s a good thing.

Call center reps, service line leaders, population health teams, and others are increasingly communicating with patients and consumers — reminding them of upcoming appointments, informing them of screenings that are due or past due, sending pre-op or discharge instructions, and more.

What’s the best way for healthcare organizations to manage patient and consumer communications across the enterprise? How can leaders gain visibility across each area?

Join us for a free webinar on Thursday April 25 at 2 p.m. ET to hear from a top industry expert who will share how CRM has evolved and discuss best practices that can help your organization take full advantage of state-of-the-art CRM capabilities.

You’ll learn:

  • What the current state of CRM is in healthcare, and why it often falls short.
  • How to structure CRM for enterprise-wide success.
  • Best practices for implementation, governance, and strategy.
  • How to set priorities that align with the strategic plan when launching campaigns.
  • How a CRM can scale communications using real-time data and rules-based automated campaigns.
  • What to consider when choosing a CRM solution.

And much much more!

How Bad HOA and Condo Boards Hurt Themselves: Expert Community Managers Offer “Tough Love” Your Board Can’t Afford to Ignore [HOAleader.com Webinar]

How Bad HOA and Condo Boards Hurt Themselves: Expert Community Managers Offer “Tough Love” Your Board Can’t Afford to Ignore

An HOAleader.com Webinar for Condo and HOA Boards

Thursday, April 18, 2024
2-3 p.m. Eastern

Community managers Katie Anderson and Brad van Rooyen have nearly 40 years of expertise in the industry and own their own firms. And they recently told HOAleader.com that they have fired more condo and HOA boards in the past year than they ever have.

“We have condos in our area that can’t find a manager who’ll work with them,” says van Rooyen. “They’re self-managing because they have no other choice.”

“I have a feeling these associations are going to crush the industry,” he adds. “Nobody’s going to want to go into the association management industry. That will make property values go down. And it will cause legislation governing condos and HOAs to become more draconian and regulatory than it already is.”

Don’t get Anderson and van Rooyen wrong—they love their work, and they love their clients—the ones they keep. They say there are many, many good board members out there. But a few bad apples on a board can ruin things for the whole community, and if that happens, your condo or HOA could be forced to manage itself or forced to pay a fortune to get a manager who’ll tolerate the damage those few leaders heap on the manager.

The good news is that these pros have offer tough love that will help you operate your community smarter and with less conflict, get the best work out of your manager without paying a fortune, and deal effectively with those board members who could do lasting damage to your community.

Join us for this webinar and you’ll learn:

  • The types of lawsuits they’re seeing more frequently among their clients, and the board actions that trigger those lawsuits
  • How the spike in lawsuits costs condo and HOA board members more stress and their communities more money
  • The growth in recall votes and contested elections they’re both experiencing among their clients and the lessons for board members nationwide
  • Why you should work hard to avoid these problems (spoiler alert: They damage property values for everyone in the condo or HOA)
  • What you can reasonably expect from your managers, the services that will cost more—and the types of requests that are so unreasonable that managers will decline to renew your contract or even fire your community as a client
  • The concrete steps your board can take today to reduce your risk of lawsuits, recalls, and ugly, contested elections
  • Tips for effectively curbing the damage done by board members with an agenda that’s not in the best interest of the community

In just one hour, you’ll understand the changes your community could face in the future and hear actionable information you can use to best position your community for a smooth and successful future. Register now for this informative event for community association board members.

HOAleader.com Offers New Webinar on How to Read and Understand Condo/HOA Financial Statements

How to Read Your Association’s Financial Reports (and Fulfill Your Fiduciary Duty)

An HOAleader.com Webinar for Condo and HOA Boards

Thursday, January 18, 2024
2-3 p.m. Eastern

Nobody expects you, as a board member, to be a CPA or a super-high-level financial whiz. But to fulfill your fiduciary duties, you do need to be able to understand your association’s financial statements, ask good questions about its financial status, and spot potential problems.

And in the past four years, these skills have become all the more complicated by the financial stressors COVID-19 placed on you, combined with the hyper-focus on deferred maintenance that has emerged in the wake of the Surfside, Fla., condo collapse—along with today’s stubborn inflation.

This webinar, led by two community association management experts, will help get you there. These two veteran industry leaders will cover:

  • The major financial reports for community associations and what each shows you, from balance sheet and cash flow to bank statements, check stubs, and credit card statements
  • Common issues that arise throughout the year, such as what to do when your budget varies from its original figures
  • The difference between cash and accrual accounting and why it matters
  • How condo/HOA finances have changed for communities in times of COVID, including new budget line items you should consider
  • How to spot potential fraud (Hint: You need to look not just at bank statements but also financial reports, for instance)
  • The role of your advisors:
    • Bookkeeper and CPA (is every bookkeeper a CPA? Is every CPA a bookkeeper? Does it matter?)
    • Banker
    • Manager
    • Attorney
    • Tax advisor
  • Other financial professionals you might want to consider adding to your team, along with where to draw lines between the advisors’ roles)
  • What you need to know to understand investment reports and reserve reports
  • The differences when it comes to financials for self-managed HOAs
  • Recordkeeping: What’s public, what gets shared with members, what just gets summarized, and what doesn’t get shared at all?

In just one hour, you’ll get the information you need to begin confidently reviewing financial reports for your association and identifying when something doesn’t seem right. Register now for this informative event for community association board members.
