Take It to the Board: Heart of Service, Spirit of Gratitude with Stephanie Maher

Are volunteer community association board members at the top of your thankful-for list? They are for Donna DiMaggio Berger, who counts their tremendous service during (and in what we hope are the waning days of) the pandemic right up there with the love and support of her friends and family. This special mini-episode explores this and other items on Donna’s gratitude list – and examines her belief that community associations can change the world.

Featuring guest host: Stephanie Maher, Show Producer of Take It to the Board; SVP – Marketing & Social Media for Jaffe.

Highlights also include:

  • How Take It to the Board serves both new members and old hands of the shared ownership community;
  • What new homeowners need to understand about their HOA, including the significant consequences of violations and when they should retain their own lawyer;
  • Why the community association lifestyle is becoming – and in some cases is already established as – the preferred model of development around the U.S.

BONUS: Have you heard the one about the goats?

Think you know what community association life is all about? Think again. Residents must obey the rules, directors must follow the law, and managers must keep it all running smoothly. Take It to the Board explores the reality of life in a condominium, cooperative or homeowners’ association, what’s really involved in serving on its board, and how to maintain that ever-so-delicate balance of being legally compliant and community spirited. Leading community association attorney Donna DiMaggio Berger acknowledges the balancing act without losing her sense of humor as she talks with a variety of association leaders, experts, and vendors about the challenges and benefits of the community association lifestyle.
