CHICAGO (May 26, 2017): FirstService Residential, Chicagoland’s leading property management company, announces its upcoming board training roundtable for condominium, cooperative and homeowner association board members. The free training will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at 303 East Wacker Drive in Chicago. The session’s discussion will be focused on “Planning For and Managing Capital Projects.” Mark Waldman, president of Waldman Engineering Consultants, will be the guest speaker, presented by Asa Sherwood, president, and Robert Meyer, director of engineering services, at FirstService Residential in Illinois.
Waldman has 20 years of engineering, design and construction experience. He has completed numerous technical problem-solving and reserve studies for Illinois condominium associations. The June roundtable will show board members how to best execute and plan for capital projects in their association, from assessing reserve studies to project completion. Space is limited and advance registration is required to attend this free training. Board members can sign up on the company’s website,
“It is so important to start early in planning capital improvement projects because it takes time for the plan to evolve,” said Waldman.
“We want to empower board members to effectively plan for and manage capital projects in associations. Many board members believe the process will be stressful but it doesn’t have to be,” said Sherwood. “By providing the right tools and resources developed through years of managing capital improvement projects on behalf of our clients, we set board members up for success. Our quarterly roundtables provide a great forum to share best practices and equip boards with the knowledge they need to lead and support successful communities.”
FirstService Residential offers free training seminars for board members as a value-added service, whether they are current clients or not. Past events have included lectures on a variety of topics, including: Board Orientation and Best Practices, Legal Updates for Communities, Budget and Financial Health, Active Shooter Response and more.
