The NC Community Associations Institute will host a “board member essentials” program on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, at the Crest Center in Asheville. Since fewer community association legal programs have been held in Western North Carolina, please consider attending. I’m the speaker and will be talking about differences in types of community associations and why that matters, the governing documents you can’t ignore, essential owner obligations, and recently adopted/proposed legislation impacting community associations.

More details can be found at the NC CAI registration page for the event.
