1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Tiny Bed Bugs Create Big Problems
Visitors, hoarders and travelers can unknowingly introduce bed bugs to a single unit which can infest other units and even entire buildings. A growing area of concern for condominiums, these tiny pests can create big problems if not proactively addressed and aggressively treated. Understand how these pests most commonly make their way into your community and what steps the board should take before, during and after the first bed bug is discovered.

1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Associations and the Law
The decisions boards make about the use of marijuana in the community, resident requests for emotional support animals and hiring outside contractors can land them at odds with the law, embroil the community in expensive litigation or find the association on the losing side of a judgement. Experienced condominium attorneys will navigate the legal pitfalls that can befall your community.

1:00 p.m.– 2:30 p.m. Spend a Little, Save a Lot
Maintenance doesn’t always have to be expensive. With the proper care and regular upkeep of common areas, buildings and landscape, communities can save thousands of dollars on costly repairs, premature aging and untimely replacement. Panel members will address best practices and money saving tips to keep your community looking good and on budget well into the future.
