Experts provide tips to HOA board members for planning and executing community events
(April 28, 2016, Las Vegas) – As part of its commitment to provide ongoing board member training and to support its mission of enhancing lifestyles for community residents, FirstService Residential, the leading community management company in Nevada, recently hosted an event to help HOA board members plan successful community events. Held at FirstService Residential’s main Las Vegas office on April 21, 2016, attendees benefited from the expertise of two speakers, Maurice Talley, corporate trainer for FirstService Residential in Nevada, and Rhett Marek, owner of Las Vegas Entertainment Productions, a local event planning company.
Both speakers provided guidance and ideas for a wide range of event types for communities of all sizes and types and shared tips for encouraging community involvement by way of these events. Fostering a sense of community is a challenge faced by many homeowners’ associations and important to the reputation and marketability of a community. Carefully planned and properly executed community events can help to instill a sense of community pride and create social cohesion among neighbors. Hosting community events can also serve as an effective tool for building relationships and enhancing the quality of life for community residents.
“We believe in supporting our volunteer board members with the proper tools and resources to help them more effectively lead their communities,” said Steven Parker, president of FirstService Residential in Nevada. “By sharing best practices and insights developed through years of managing Nevada community associations we are able to help them achieve their goals for their communities and enhance residents’ lifestyles.”
