Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: You announce an HOA election providing proper notice, yet only a handful of owners show up to vote. You end up short of your quorum requirements, and you have to start all over again with your fingers crossed that next time, your luck will be better, and your election will be successful. Or instead, you hold your election, get definitive results—you think—but then the election gets challenged.

We can help you do better! Join us for an in-depth webinar on October 9 led by two community association lawyers who’ve devoted their extensive—and impressive—careers to solving the challenges HOAs face every day. You’ll log out of the webinar with valuable, workable tactics you can implement immediately to make your election process smoother, more successful, and less contentious.

You’ll learn:

  • How to determine the specific steps your HOA must follow to conduct proper elections
  • Details on the most common mistakes boards make from election start to finish, and the most likely challenges to your election—and how to nip them in the bud
  • Information to help you identify your quorum requirements and creative tactics to ensure you get a quorum
  • Common rules governing who can run for your HOA board, along with insights on the pros and cons of changing your eligibility requirements—and tips on how to do it if you decide you should
  • Suggestions for general rules your board may want to consider passing to make holding elections easier
  • Tips to provide effective notice—and undercut any attempt to unwind your completed election based on claims of insufficient or improper notice
  • What you must know about proxies
  • Techniques you can deploy on the day of the election to avoid on-the-spot glitches
  • Plus much more!

It’s just an hour of your time, but you’ll walk away much wiser and better prepared for your HOA’s next election. Register now for this informative event for community association board members.

How Do Webinars Work?

A webinar is remarkably cost-effective and convenient. You participate from your home or office, using a regular telephone and a computer with an Internet connection. You have no travel costs, hassle, or commute time.

Plus, for one low price, you can get as many people on your condo or HOA board to participate as you can fit around a speakerphone and a computer screen. And now, with our special group membership offer, your entire board can attend—even from different locations. This offer requires an Group Membership. When any group member orders, we will set up access for the entire group. Up to 10 users can attend for one low price. It’s another incredible deal as part of Group Membership.

Because the conference is live, you can ask the speakers questions via the webinar interface. Many attendees tell us this is the most valuable part of the webinar.

You will receive access instructions via e-mail several days before the event. You don’t need any additional materials before the webinar starts. Your conference materials will be available for you to view, print, and download when you log in to participate in the event.
