For association boards who remain unconvinced, Donna and Brett outline how technology can remove some of their administrative burden, streamline daily operations, and even improve community-wide communication.

This conversation focuses on online voting capabilities and custom association websites, digging into the mechanics of virtual voting systems and how best to make their adoption successful, what to expect from your software provider and who handles issues and questions, the dangers of a stale community website and what kind of information should be included on an engaging one, how to address questions of fraud and security in a virtual environment, and so much more. Also highlighted: the cost-effectiveness that even a hybrid model of voting (incorporating paper and digital) can offer, and how that service can be applied to all agenda items requiring community member input (elections, material alterations, amendments, reserve funding, etc.).

BONUS: Using your association website as a central communication hub and digital library can help your community survive the next unexpected weather event without missing a step!

About Take It To The Board

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.
