In years past, Cardinal Management Group, Inc. has had the great pleasure of hosting client events centered around expanding our clients’ understanding and education around important community association topics, best practices and trends. These events have been often eagerly awaited by our clients and were excellent opportunities for a little face time with our senior leadership and company owners. These events were hosted offsite, usually at a hotel or other private venue with meals and drinks served and usually some free giveaways.
We have truly enjoyed being able to offer such high caliber events to our clients, but the pandemic has -- as with so many other things -- changed the face of our client events. We were excited to host our very first client webinar in April, entitled Opening Amenities in the Time of COVID. The event was developed during our Executive Planning Session earlier in the year as a way to better support our clients in their decision-making processes as it relates to opening amenities, facilities, and other common areas now that vaccinations are becoming the norm and people anxiously await getting back to their daily lives.
Spearheaded, by Senior Vice President - Developer Division, Terry McGuire, much coordination and planning took place to carefully select the topics that are most facing community associations from various perspectives such as legal implications and risk management factors. Guest speakers included a panel of industry experts who are well recognized by our clients as well as highly respected by our team of professionals and their peers. Planning such a large event virtually was no easy feat and took some heavy lifting but was well worth it. Terry said, “It is not only just the right time for this type of event, but it is the right thing to do for our community partners”. A special thanks to those professionals who volunteered their time to prepare their presentations and give up their evening for the benefit of the Cardinal family.
Feedback after the event reflected Cardinal’s first webinar was a great success and well received by all. One of Cardinal’s newest clients stated “Cardinal coordinated a great session. The information shared will provide support to the decisions that need to be made in the time of COVID-19 by unit owner associations. When I joined the Board, I envisioned the professionalism and cadence demonstrated last night. My perspective on Cardinal and the value you bring has been broadened. It takes a village and Cardinal Management brought well informed subject matter experts to the table.”
Thomas Mazzei, CEO, who hosted the event, was grateful to see everyone “come together” and enjoyed the opportunity to “meet” all the new faces of community volunteers helping to support the neighborhoods they so fondly call home, sharing “Overall, this event was a step in a new direction - was a new experience for our team - but we are looking forward to hosting similar events in the near future and continue to remain focused on ensuring that our clients are reassured knowing that we are the custodians of their community and the stewards of one of their most valuable and precious assets….their home”.
Client webinars are accessible and free to all community association volunteers proudly managed by Cardinal Management Group, Inc.
