Managing the Chaos - Reversing the Negative Perceptions of HOA’s 
The perceptions of community associations tend to be influenced by sensational newspaper headlines which are typically negative. This presentation will feature an open and honest discussion of why some communities are the victims of “bad press” and why others  have “earned” the negative perceptions.  The panel will review a variety of news stories and cases which provide real life examples of association issues which were mishandled, resulting in negative perceptions.  

Speakers: Lesley Millender-Irwin, CMCA, AMS, PCAM of Action Property Management, Inc. and Matt D. Ober, Esq. CCAL of Richardson Harman Ober PC

When is a Neighbor to Neighbor Dispute Really an HOA Dispute
We’ve all heard the phrase “it’s a neighbor to neighbor dispute.”  Most often this phrase is used to indicate that the association will not be getting involved.  But what if a neighbor to neighbor dispute actually requires the association to step in?  If so, when is this required and where does an association draw the line? We’ll review these questions and more to allow your association to resolve disputes when necessary and avoid disputes when action is not required. 

Speakers:  Morgen Hardigree of Optimum Professional Property Management and James McCormick, Esq., CCAL of Peters & Freedman, LLP

Exclusive Use Common Area - It’s Complicated
Recent changes to Civil Code section 4775 relating to the maintenance, repair and replacement of exclusive use common area went into effect January 1, 2017. This new law is going to be of concern for many community associations, especially those that had previously taken the position that exclusive use common area was the owner’s responsibility to repair and replace. This program will help board members and managers identify what is exclusive use common area and who is responsible for its maintenance and repair.

Speakers:  Karen Holthe, CMCA, AMS of Cardinal Property Management, AAMC and David Swedelson, Esq. of SwedelsonGottlieb

Top 10 Reasons to Restate Your Docs
Many associations have been living with their original, developer-friendly, CC&Rs drafted 30, 40 and even 50 years ago! Often these documents are difficult to read, confusing and burdensome on the owners. Boards may be slow to act when restating their governing documents because the project can seem onerous, expensive, and destined to ultimately fail due to owner apathy.   This panel will provide you with the top ten reasons why your community should restate your governing documents and walk you through the restatement process. 

Speakers:  Timothy P. Flanagan, Esq. of Green Bryant & French, LLP and Denise D. Iger, Esq. of Iger Wankel & Bonkowski, LLP 

Handling Marijuana Issues in HOAs 
After Proposition 64, what is now legal?  How will communities address nuisance complaints and ventilation issues that arise?  This session will help you draft a smoking policy an help you avoid the risk of disability discrimination claims and give best practices for enforcement of the smoking policy.

Speakers:  Brittany Ketchum, Esq. of Beaumont Gitlin Tashjian and Janet L.S. Powers, Esq., CCAL of Fiore, Racobs & Powers, A PLC 

Long & Short of It - Dealing with Short Term Rentals in Your HOA 
This presentation will take you through different scenarios in which associations are facing challenges with enforcement of governing documents, and protection of property. This session will identify relevant issues, discuss legislation, coastal commission involvement, and provide strategies, and enforcement mechanisms to prevent and/or contain short term rentals, and provide guidelines for continued use and enjoyment within the community. 

Speakers:  Laurisa Ehlers of Powerstone Property Management and Steven A. Roseman, Esq. of Roseman & Associates, APC
