Cardinal Property Management was honored to host Sandra Gottlieb, Esq., of SwedelsonGottlieb, recently as she taught 17 members of a variety of community association boards in Orange County about collecting delinquent assessments after a judgment has been obtained. Before the seminar, Cardinal provided dinner and soft drinks for the attendees as they mingled and became acquainted. Kathy Gonzales, executive director of the Orange County Regional Chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI-OCRC), talked with the group about the benefits of CAI-OCRC membership before introducing Ms Gottlieb. Ms Gottlieb discussed the steps that can be taken when an association forecloses on a property and becomes the owner. After the hour and a half seminar and a lively question and answer session, Cardinal held two drawings Casitas Californias Townhouses Association Board Member Mike Connell’s name was drawn for a $50 gift card for dinner at a local restaurant. This gift was awarded compliments of Cardinal. Orange Park Community Association Board Member Charles McNees won a gift package of reference books for community leaders and a Starbucks gift card. This gift was sponsored by CAI-OCRC. Ms Gottlieb thanked Cardinal at the conclusion of the class. “It’s amazing that Cardinal gives board members the opportunity to become educated in these areas so you all can make informed decisions for your communities,” said Ms Gottlieb. Cardinal has a long history of hosting classes for new and seasoned board members as well as members of boards whose communities Cardinal does not manage. The educational seminars are also open to community members. Why does Cardinal focus on educating boards and community members? According to Cardinal President Farrah Esquer, “The more people understand about community laws, the more they can make sound decisions and better the community living experience for all. We are partners with our communities. When a community is successful, Cardinal is successful.” The final class of the year will be in October. This course will touch on Hot Topics such as nuisances, patrol, security, parking issues, new case law, and other hot topics affecting your communities.
