The Basics of Covenant Enforcement
April 11, 2018
Twinberry Auditorium / Fort Collins Sr. Center / 1200 Raintree Dr. Fort Collins, CO 80526 No matter how much a board tries to obtain voluntary compliance with the association's governing documents, there still seems to be at least one person in the crowd that refuses to comply. For this reason, board need to become familiar with and understand the covenant enforcement process. In this class, we will discuss items such as legal requirements for board members when enforcing covenants, common pitfalls when it comes to covenant enforcement, and the step-by-step process of covenant enforcement. This class is a must if you've faced, or are currently facing, residents in your community that are just not following the rules.
The Basics of Being a Board Member
May 15, 2018
Many owners volunteer to serve on their association boards to give back to the community and contribute to a community's success. However, what many board members don't realize at first is that they have many duties and obligations once they are elected to the board. Some of these duties and obligations are contained in the governing documents of the association; some are contained in statute. Regardless of where these duties and obligations originate, they must be followed and observed to keep the board members and associations safe from liability exposure. Join us for this class, where will identify these various duties and obligations and discuss what they mean and how you can comply. This session is a great educational tool for new board members and an excellent refresher for the experienced directors too!
Homeowners Rights and Responsibilities
June 14, 2018
A community is a place you want to call home and where you feel at home. Being part of a community means sharing with your neighbors a common desire to promote harmony and contentment. This goal is best achieved when homeowners and association leaders understand and fulfill their rights and responsibilities. Well governed, enjoyable communities are places where homeowners and leaders have learned how to strike a reasonable, logical balance between the best interests of individual owners and those of the community as a whole. This presentation will help homeowners understand their rights and responsibilities and how they can participate positively in their community.
The Basics of Collections and Foreclosures
Sept 20, 2018
Twinberry Auditorium / Fort Collins Sr. Center / 1200 Raintree Dr. Fort Collins, CO 80526 No doubt our economy is improving and associations are starting to experience a smaller number of delinquencies. But unfortunately, no matter how good the economy gets, delinquencies still exist and must be addressed by associations. Therefore, it is imperative for boards to become familiar with the collections process and what can and can't be done under the law. This class will focus on providing you information regarding all aspects of the collection process, so you can make educated decisions with respect to delinquent accounts in your community.

The Roundtable program focuses on the education of HOA board members and homeowners. It allows attendees to ask questions and interact with people, including the speakers and their fellow board members and homeowners, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The Roundtable is different from the normal class format, where a lecturer teaches on a specific subject. Instead, it is set up so that we have three speakers who are experts on the assigned topics, and who field questions from the attendees at three different roundtables.
