We are in a long-term Dangerous Drought and Pending Water Shortage!!
Water Smart Landscaping - See New Flier!!


These conditions have existed before on this planet and in our country. It has happened before and it will happen again. BUT … We don't know the timeline and therefore, we have to assume that it will continue into the unpredictable future. That being said, we now need to seriously conserve this precious resource. Below are links and phone numbers for the Las Vegas Valley Water District, the City of North Las Vegas and the City of Henderson. Unfortunately, as we checked out these links and phone numbers we discovered that the Cities and Water District do not yet seem to be serious about the water situation. There should be 24 hour/7day a week numbers to call to report serious water infractions, line breaks, etc. There aren't – currently. Until the State, Cities and other involved entities in Nevada take the current water situation seriously, we will continue to waste water. What's amazing is that the Southern Nevada Water Authority has responsibility over this, BUT NO AUTHORITY!!! Therefore, we as individuals will have to take up the slack and do our part.

The numbers and links that we have been told to use to report water waste are shown below.

This is a MUST READ for HOA's and Homeowners.

Living Up to Your Fiduciary Duty as an HOA Board Member 

Though this may be news to many homeowners diligently serving
on association boards throughout Nevada, by stepping up to the
plate and agreeing to volunteer your time and effort, you're agreeing
to act as a fiduciary on behalf of your fellow owners. That's not just
a big word. It carries legal consequences if you - even unknowingly - 
breach that duty. Here's what you need to know about fulfilling your fiduciary duty as an association board member.

The New Learning NORM? ... Distance Learning with ZOOM ...

With the onset of this global China virus fiasco, we have been forced to deal with new ways of doing everyday things, such as learning through remote education. The ZOOM tele meeting platform has become a staple for many institutions (once all the company's problems were addressed.) It offers a smooth process for holding remote meetings and training sessions. 

 

The Nevada HOA industry has used ZOOM for the past year+ carrying out numerous training sessions. For credit classes the challenge has been to be able to verify a person's presence and attention during a class if they profess to having no video capability. Without video, it is nearly impossible to CERTIFY (to the Division) a person's attendance throughout the class. CAM students are required to have stable video and sound.

CAS (Community Association Solutions) has determined that "no video" will no longer be an excepted excuse. Management companies must now make accommodations for managers in the office or for them to have access to a proper laptop or tablet for use in another location. Distance learning, to some extent, is here to stay. PC's without video cams are not an excuse. USB video cams are readily available and simple to hook up. Once plugged in to the USB port, the computer will recognize it as a built in CAM.  All phones and tablets today have CAMS  built in. The ZOOM app on the phone will take advantage of the phone's CAM when connected to ZOOM and logged in to the class. There are also a number of apps available for phones that will turn the phone CAM into a USB cam when plugged in via USB to the PC. Works great! Some are free. So there are really no excuses for not being seen on video for class attendance verification.

The use of only a phone to attend a ZOOM class is really unacceptable by itself as is being in a moving vehicle. You must be able to view the class on a tablet or PC with a decent size screen and use the phone for video CAM purposes only.

CAS is happy to provide assistance to anyone needing technical help in getting set up for this type of learning to where you have the proper environment. Any type of distractions should be removed or mitigated (noise, interruptions from others, etc.)

Welcome to HOASupport.com
 
This site is dedicated to those volunteers who serve on the boards and committees of a Common Interest Community and others who provide services to this industry. It is the dedicated and committed members of these two groups who make the community association concept work regardless of all of the forces striving to make it fail. These people need all of the help they can get. It is the intention of those developing this site and others associated with it to provide that help. We hope to accomplish this by providing useful information, tools and support.

SOUTHERN NEVADA
RESIDENTS!!!

REGARDLESS OF THE AMOUNT OF RAIN AND SNOW THE SOUTHWEST HAS RECEIVED DURING THE 2022-2023-2024 WINTER AND 2024 SPRING, THE DROUGHT IS FAR FROM OVER. IT WOULD TAKE 5-10 YEARS REPEATING THESE WEATHER CYCLES TO BRING LAKE MEAD TO A RESONABLY SAFE LEVEL. EVEN THAN, WATER CONSERVATION MEASURES WOULD STILL NEED TO CONTINUE BECAUSE OF THE CONTINUED GROWTH OF THE SOUTHWEST U.S. THAT RELIES ON THE COLORADO RIVER FOR ITS SURVIVAL.

Key Points to Consider for Reserves and Reserve Studies!!

Watch for Sara's Blasts!

 

2023 was a legislative year In Nevada & there was a lot of legislation passed that affects Common Interest Communities (CICs) and as you know, much of it isn't necessarily friendly to CIC Owners. Continue to monitor Sara's blasts for information on the latest updates. Email:
