  • “I took your class at the Spring North Gulf Coast CAI Trade Show – How to run a board meeting. I can’t tell you what a HUGE difference applying your suggestions has made in our homeowner meetings. Our meetings are far more efficient, far less confrontational and much MUCH shorter. For once – we are staying on topic with each agenda item. THANK YOU! This class should be mandatory for all board members..” – A. M., Fontainebleau Terrace
