National Expert Kelly Richardson Teaches Cardinal’s First Board Member Class of the Year

Cardinal Property Management - Thursday, February 20, 2014

Cardinal Property Management, AAMC/ACMF, hosted attorney and national expert Kelly Richardson on February 19 as part of Cardinal’s commitment to board education. This first class of 2014 was titled “Advanced Board Meeting Issues and Strategies.” Kelly offered tips and techniques to run effective and efficient board meetings. The evening seminar opened with Cardinal President Farrah Esquer introducing Kathy Gonzalez, executive director of the Orange County Regional Chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI), to the 34 attending board members. Kathy presented the mission and benefits of CAI, and how the institute helps boards around the world create and maintain successful common interest communities. CAI members have access to information about the trends in this rapidly changing industry with practical knowledge and insights from leaders in the field, best practices, research, and tools that can be used every day. Kathy then presented attorney Kelly Richardson to the class. Kelly is widely recognized as an expert in common interest developments, boards of directors, and community managers. He is the author of HOA Homefront, a syndicated weekly column dedicated to reducing conflict in California communities. He has also been a member of CAI’s national board of trustees since 2011. Kelly shared information from agendas to emergency decisions to disciplinary meetings, then held a question and answer session complete with handouts for members to take back to their boards. Join us as we help you build your tool chest as a board member throughout the year. Classes are held at Cardinal headquarters at 1290 N. Hancock St., Suite 103, in Anaheim.
