We are over a year into the pandemic and are starting to see the end in sight, even as we weather the third wave.
As a Condominium Board member, we have all gotten used to Zoom Board meetings, and have hopefully worked out any kinks in communicating with our condo community members at large. Some Condominium Boards have embraced AGMs in a variety of non-traditional ways, while others are almost two years into their Board Director 1 year term, as they wait to hold an in person AGM. At CCI-NS, we have seen our members rise to the challenges COVID -19 has posed and have embraced being forced into adopting technology in the running of their Condominium.
Our Professional members who work in Condominium have also adapted well to the changing needs of their clients. They have learned to master Zoom, and have come up with practical and creative ways to help their clients.
CCI-NS has embraced this shift to digital and has gone all-in on webinars. I am so impressed by our CCI-NS Board for increasing our education offerings in a time like this and for ensuring that all members see the value we bring. The move to webinars has also helped us reach out to our members outside of HRM.
For me, the main take away as we all embrace working in this more digital space, is the amount of time that can be saved. I have enjoyed being able to chair board meetings for clients, and participate in my own condo board meetings, in the comfort of my home, without losing any time to travel, and of course, while wearing sweat pants.
I hope you all enjoy the information in this newsletter, and continue to attend both the provincial and national virtual education offering that CCI is putting on. Visit our website for the most up to date information about all upcoming education offerings, ccinovascotia.ca. We are available to assist in any way we can, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
