Cardinal Property Management - Wednesday, December 21, 2011

The January Educational luncheon program got the year off to a great start. The well received January luncheon program was titled Keeping It Professional in a Social Setting. The esteemed panel of speakers included Farrah Esquer of Cardinal Property Management, Sandra Gottlieb of Swedelson and Gottlieb and Debra Warren of Cinnabar Consulting. The panel held a round table discussion on how ethics and professional behavior benefits us all. They reviewed ethical dilemmas, business ethics, ethical considerations in social settings and gave guidelines for gifts that may have an influence on a decision. Ms. Warren explained about recent case studies and examples and shared some of the issues facing CAI ethics committee, where she serves as chair. The group offered information on what to do when a manager or board member crosses the ethical line and practical application of these ethics and guidelines for everyone to check their own moral compass. This program was coordinated by Dori Kagan of U.S. Bank and Sarah Reed of Fiore, Racobs and Powers.
