Cardinal’s March 29th Board Education Course is a Huge Success

On March 29th the Board Meeting Tactics course was held in Cardinal’s corporate office and was taught by Kelly Richardson of Richardson Harman Ober, PC.  Mr. Richardson explained the role of a volunteer Director, discussed the importance of maintaining a balanced community and explained the Business Judgment Rule and protection from personal liability.  Finally, Mr. Richardson focused on tactics to run effective and less stressful Board Meetings to combat meeting “traps” like excessive discussion on specific topics, overly ambitious agendas, avoiding “town hall” meetings and handling conflict and disagreement.

This was the first time this course has been offered to Cardinal’s clients and was a success with over 20 attendees present.  The evening ended with two raffle drawings for those in attendance.  Adriana R. from Sunny Hills Homeowners Association won a complimentary one-year membership to the Orange County Chapter of CAI and Rex V. of Orange Park Community Association won a $50 gift card for dinner and a movie.  The attendees enjoyed gourmet sandwiches and salad from California Pizza Kitchen and Starbucks coffee and dessert.

Testimonial:

“Really enjoyed the Thursday night meeting.  That subject matter should be addressed once a year, in my opinion.  Excellent speaker.” – David M., Criterion Towne Homes I Homeowners Association
