Associa, the industry’s largest community management company, hosted the “How Government Impacts You and Your Association” educational webinar for board members, explaining how state legislatures can have a dramatic impact on communities nationwide. The webinar is available now at Legislature Update Webinar.Industry expert, John Krueger, Associa’s vice president of government affairs, gives a detailed look at different types of proposals that are being filed, debated, and sometimes passed by legislators around the country. He explains who those bills actually affect and why board members should be involved in the legislative process.
“Each year, more than 1,000 bills are filed that impact community associations,” stated John Krueger, Associa’s vice president of government affairs. “Those bills typically focus on regulating four main areas: control of common areas, self-governance, financial regulations, and board member and manager requirements. This informational webinar will help board members better understand the process, the affects, and how they can get their voices heard. While industry representatives are important, nothing is more important than the voice of actual constituents – especially board members.”
