 April 2022 

Date: 042722 ... Do you want classes to continue on Zoom?  Read this, please & look at the other two messages. 

  1. The NRED has audited several of the recent CE classes on Zoom only to realize that managers are not turning on their cameras and paying attention to the class. The Division has stated that cameras are required in order to receive CE credits. With phones now, there is no excuse not to have a camera on even if the PC you are using does not have one. Course presenters are equally as guilty as many do not require cameras be on and do not check that people are actually present AND PAYING ATTENTION. What course presenters and managers are doing when they don’t comply with the Divisions requirements is having the NRED consider doing away with Zoom classes now.  PLEASE find a way to turn your camera on during these classes, be visibly paying attention AND put your license number in your signature as the reports that have to be kept afterwards will then show that information should the NRED ask and audit. Please don’t be one of those responsible for doing away with these convenient and time saving classes.

  2. Ed Song, Esq. will be teaching the new NAC class regarding Directors on 5-13-2022 at 1:00 p.m. on Zoom.  You sign up with me and it is a new class with 3 hours of Nevada Law CE.0469000 CAM

Unfortunately, the Reno pre-licensing classes will be moved to Zoom  and conducted during the LV classes.  SO sorry that we have to do this, but 4 people just isn’t enough for over a month of travel time for me and several of the instructors.  Sorry.  

They will all be conducted on Zoom and here is attached the schedule for that purpose. There are CE classes mixed in as well and they will be on Zoom for you to get CE credits too for already licensed managers.

Key may be sending anyone who signed up a separate e-mail as well, but wanted you to have this schedule.

Date: 042022 ... Classes and Other Information                                                                                          

  1. For those of you who have not taken the CE.0445000 2 Hours General Financial Workshop – AB 356 on Water and Turf put on by the Southern Nevada Water Authority, Gary Lein, CPA, Chuck Balacy and Rob Forney, you need to consider taking the class.  I am taking the reservations and it is on 4/21/2022 at 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.  on Zoom
     

  2. On the www.hoasupport.com website, there is a new article that the City of Henderson asked me to put up on there about draining pools as people are doing it wrong and individual owners in the properties get fined too for doing it wrong as well.  Please share with your boards, homeowners, etc.  The link is on the right side under quick links down under “Henderson Pools.”  It was a real mess when it happened in my little gated community, street sweepers had to be called and fines were levied
     

  3. On 5-24-2022 at 9:00 a.m. CAI will be hosting Budgets and Reserves with Gary Lein, CPA CE.0128000 3 hours general credits.  It is in person at Desert Shores CA.  CAI will be taking reservations at Christina Snow info@cainevada.org
     

  4. I have a new class that I am trying to get the attorneys to confirm a date soon, but it is NAC 116 regarding directors, not managers, but has 3 hours of law credits for managers.  This will help you to help them stay out of trouble by attending and getting them to attend as well.  I will be blasting it out when I have it set so that you can share the notice. It will be on Zoom and taught by one of the industry attorneys.

 

I just wanted you to have these to mark your calendars and let the people teaching the classes know ASAP so that they can plan accordingly.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Date: 040122 ... I don’t mean to be a nag, but all of these are in your best interest to read, please. 

  1. Just a quick reminder that when you sign up for a class, please, please, please give us the name that is on your current license vs. the name you might be using on your e-mail signatures as well as your license number. You have 10 days to make a change of name with the NRED that you may be using and you could get in trouble.  The way the NRED finds out is that you give us your name and license number and we therefore don’t have to look it up, which is a good thing UNLESS you give us the wrong name.  The NRED then comes back to us with the problem and reminds us to tell you that you are only to use the name on your license and if it has changed, you have 10 days to notify them.  I don’t want you to get in trouble with the NRED. PLEASE………..
     

  2. Just a reminder that most of my blasts go up on my website along with new articles, notices, resumes and job openings.   Here is the link and one important one is included as well as there are serious issues with the drought.

  3. The water rates will be going up considerably next year and you need to be able to take this into consideration as you work on your budgets for next year.  The Water Authority is raising its rates as the article shown on the article on www.hoasupport.com but who knows how much the local municipalities will be raising theirs as a result of these increases too.
     

  4. The Southern Nevada Health Authority will be increasing their rates as wellSee the attached

Date: 032222 ... Couple of NEW classes & Arborist Recommendations for Turf Removal and Serious Concerns for Established Trees.       

Just a reminder about the removal of turf that is required.  Don’t let the SNWA run out of money before you do it.   Here are reminders about things that can happen during those changes from a knowledgeable arborist:
 

TREE ISSUES – Protecting Established Trees During Turf Removal!

  • Don’t Turn Off Watering the Turf and Forget About the Trees!

  • You Won’t Necessarily See an Immediate Effect on the Trees But You Will Eventually See Them Suffer and Potentially Die if Left Without Water for Too Long a Period of Time Especially in the Summer Months.

  • Turf conversion projects should occur in cool season months, with regards to mature trees that will be affected by the conversion (i.e., the Late Fall or Winter Months When Many Trees are Dormant and Therefore Less Sensitive to Short Term Loss of Irrigation.) Definitely … NOT IN THE SUMMER MONTHS!!

  • "Trees can be put under a great deal of stress when a change to their environment occurs.  When a plant is stressed, it’s left vulnerable to secondary insects and disease infestations.  All these factors can lead to further decline and possibly premature failure. To generalize, yes dormant trees will have the least shock in response to a change in the environment like turf conversion. Also Moisture loss from tree leaves is usually lower and, therefore, the need to replenish water will be less in cool seasons."
    ... Many thanks to David Hines, 
    Assistant District Manager, Certified Arborist WE-12741A, Davey Tree Expert Co., david.hines@davey.com. for his most valuable input on this matter.

Date: 031522 ... PLEASE - Take a minute to read the 3 messages below as all are important.       

A. Help for people conducting classes:

- It is really important that you read the full message when you get a message about a CE class, please.  I am not alone when people conducting these classes get frustrated because the managers don’t include their license number and the correct name that the NRED has for your license on record, not the name you casually go by daily. Also when a message has a couple of classes listed, please respond to the person shown on the form with the actually class name, not just that you want to sign up.  They don’t know which one you want.  

- Reading the whole message will show you who to contact if you have any questions or it at times has the links as well. Save everyone the time vs. just responding to the person you got it from.

 

B. Fall Pre-Licensing Classes

- Now that the Spring classes are completed and newbies are taking the state’s test, etc., it is important to start thinking about the fall pre-licensing classes. Reno only has 4 people who have stated that they will be taking those classes this time so far and so they may have to wait and Zoom into the LV classes that start on September 20th and will be in person at Key Realty Schools.   

 

C. One of the reasons that the Commission had on their recommended regulation changes to limit the

number of Provisionals that a Super could take responsibility for was because they feel that the Supers. are not doing their job.  The 2 years that the Supr. is responsible for the Provisional is a training time as the pre-licensing classes are restricted by the statutes on what can be taught.  That means that the Super has 2 years to further train them in this industry.  I continue to get a lot of questions from Provisionals who claim that they can’t even get ahold of their Supervisory CAM. You can see why the Commission and Division are considering this restriction.  PLEASE…..  There is a class facilitated by Lara Knipmeyer-Garrell on 4-7-222 at 9:00 a.m. for 3 hours that EVERY Supervisory CAM should take or have taken.  It will really help the industry as there are not enough Supers to go around.  Her e-mail address to sign up for this3 hour class larakgarrell@outlook.com – CE.0373000 General.

 February 2022 

Date: 022822 ... I have a new class that is being taught on 3-2-2022 for managers (for credits) & board members to help eveyone understand the issue.   

The class is on Being Proactive with Landscape and Tree Maintenance – CE.0454000 General and will discuss the issue of trees and landscaping now with mandatory removal of turf, etc.   It is a really good class to help understand the necessary care of trees and landscaping before it starts having pest problems, diseases and dying.  It is being taught by an arborist, Kurtis Hyde, who knows his stuff.   Please let me know ASAP if you wish to attend.

 

I also have the Non-owned and Hired Auto class on 3-4 at 2:00 p.m. which is one hour.  CE.0422000 General – A lot of people wonder why you need this insurance in an HOA when you don’t own any vehicles or rent them out as well.  Good class taught by Brian Berg who is a good educator on insurance.   Let me know if you have an interest.

  3. Please see below CAMEO’s invitation to their Spring Fling Event below. They will have a Breakfast Bar Buffet, Raffles and more.  See below and registration link after clicking on the following link: Event Flier Link

I am trying to get a feel as to whether I should cancel the in-person classes in Reno for the Pre-licensing students.  I have 7 Reno area students in this February class and it concerns me that I may not have enough to do the classes in August and September.  

 

Please let me know if you have students who will be attending in person up there as I take a month out of my life to come up there to make sure they get the education they need to manage and love doing it.  I have CE classes mixed in as well and would hate to have to cancel those too.

Date: 102021 ...  Important Information ... PLEASE READ! ... 2 Messages!

  1. Just a SERIOUS comment about class registrations.  The Supervisory Manager class was hosted last Friday and we had 71 people signed up. How many people do you think actually showed up for the class without formally canceling their registration?  33  - I don’t think  most of you understand the work that has to go on behind the scenes to host a Zoom class with all the pre and post work.  We know it is easier for the managers to take the virtual classes, but the host and person responsible for the NRED requirements work has doubled.  PLEASE be courteous and let the host know if you can’t make it AND get that evaluation completed and back to them within at least a couple of hours so that the host can FINALLY be done with all of that extra work required. PLEASE.  Don’t mean to be a pain, but it is important for you to understand.  

  2. Transition from Developer will be taught on Zoom on 10-19-2021 at 5:00 p.m. on Zoom  - Key Realty Schools $20 702-313-7000 (But let me know if you as I have other handouts. )

  3. Resales & Disclosures will be taught on Zoom on 10-20-2021 and we will be discussing the new changes in the laws in that area.   CE.0088001 – 3 Hours.   5:00 p.m. Key Realty Schools $20 702-313-7000 (But let me know if you as I have other handouts. )

  4. Just a reminder of Zoom board training on 11-17-2021 for new board members. Or those who would like to attend.  They sign up with me.

 September 2021 

Date: 092721 ...  Classes you will want to know about and will most likely recommend a couple ... 

All of the below are on Zoom: 


1.      CE.0373000 – 3 Hrs. General - For those of you who have not taken the “Are You a Good

Supervisory CAM ”, it is the second class on Supervisory CAM’s and the things that they do wrong and/or should be doing during the 3,120 hours and 2 year period.  It will be held on Thursday  October 14th at 1:00 p.m.  So many Provisionals don’t know what their super should be doing for them and the Supervisory CAM’s are leaving the “learning” to the boards and or their assistants. Totally a problem.   I really recommend that the Provisionals take the class too. Here is the link to sign up for the class with Lara as Norm and I will be teaching it and Lara facilitating.  FREE   https://myemail.constantcontact.com/--Are-you-a-good-supervisor---.html?soid=1134781727224&aid=X2H0f3_W3mM 


2.      Since the law requires that directors use the latest Robert’s Rules of Order publication, which is

#11,and Robert’s Rules does allow the body to make their own rules and we will discuss a rule. The class on January 12th  is at 10:00 a.m. and is  recommended for directors to take.  The class does not have manager credits and is 2 hours long, but we really recommend that directors take the class to stay in compliance with NRS 116.  They sign up with me and I will give them a certificate of attendance at the end of the class as proof that they got education in this area. FREE


3.      I am listing below the CE classes that are intertwined with the Key Realty School classes.  They

do cost $20 each, but are at 5:00 p.m. making it easier for you to get in the classes. They are all 3 hours 702-313-7000, but they are really bad about telling me you will be there so let me know you signed up,

Date: 070121 ...  Couple of Important Issues ...                                                                                         

  1. On July 13th  – 11:30 at the Gold Coast – at the CAI luncheon Gary Lein, CPA has been asked to address the federal changes on the reserve accounts and your financial statements “ 606”.  Sign up for the luncheon to get your questions answered. He and several other speakers will be covering reserves and financials discussing important information.   You sign up with CAI at this link and I understand that Chris said that she has free tickets at a vendors table if you ask for them.   https://cvent.me/WYAqlo  - Registration is open until Thursday night at 5:00 p.m.  I really recommend that reserve study specialist go as the financial statements are starting to be totally different now not only in Nevada because of this Federal change.

 

  1. On July 16th, the Architectural Committee class is almost full.  It is at 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.  and Ed Song, Esq. will be teaching it to help you proactively stay out of trouble with this committee since it is one of the top 10 reasons for litigation in the HOA’s. If you reserve a spot, please let me know if you can’t be there so I can get others into the class. You sign up with me.  2 Hour CE.0415000 Gen credits

 

  1. When you sign up for Any class, make sure to include your license number, please.  It really helps all of the class providers be prepared for you and save a LOT of time. Some of you go by other names than are on your license and the forms that have to go into the NRED and your certificates of attendance need to be what is on your license with the NRED.

 

Hope you had a good 4th of July Holiday.

 June 2021 

Date: 063021 ...  Important Information - Water and Classes                                                               

  1. If your association’s have not got their “unessential” replacement of grass in place, they are making a huge mistake as I understand the $3.00 rebate for per square foot could go away soon.   With the deadline of 2027 for replacing “unessential” grass, boards should start now to get as much as they can in rebates.  I have attached an RJ article about this whole issue and note that it talks about this possibly going away. DO IT NOW.  There are limits, but some is better than $.00  - Make sure all of the directors see this article as it will help them understand.  SNWA Article

  2. If you just recently got your Supervisory CAM license, it is important for you to attend a class that helps you not get in trouble for not doing your job.  It is this Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. and you contact Lara Knipmeyer Garrell to sign up even though it is my class. larakgarrell@outlook.com CE. 0373000 – 3 hours general credits. It has only been taught twice before as the original class was not renewed and this one is better.

  3. The Key Realty Schools pre-licensing classes are scheduled to start on September 7th and will be in person and on Zoom.   I have attached the schedule with the dates, but signing up now helps us determine if they will go forward or not as we had to cancel the Reno classes this Spring because of attendance levels.  Fortunately, those few students who signed up in Reno can get the best instructors to help them learn with this schedule.   The one thing you need to be aware of in advance is that cameras and active attention are required by Key Realty Schools for all Zoom classesPhones are not preferred, but can work as long as the student can be seen paying attention and they can hear.   We will work with the students in the North to have the 2 tests proctored up there.   Sept 2021 Schedule

  4. Architectural Committee’s and their use – CE.0415000 – 2 Hours general   7-16-2021 at 1:00 p.m.    This committee cause this area to be in the top 10 of insurance claims in associations.  Ed Song, Esq. will teach the class and help you understand proactively to do to ward this off.

  2. I am currently working on a couple of classes to get them approved for CE credits.  Governing Documents and their issues and Large Scale Communities and Age Restricted Communities. If you have any thing to share with me to help with this class it would be good.  I will be working with the attorneys and what they see, but it would be nice to get it from managers and directors to help others stay out of trouble, etc.

  3. My class, “Being an Effective Supervisory CAM”  will be held on 6-30-2021 at 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.  This class should be attended, if you have not already, by every Supervisory CAM and every Provisional to know what both sides of this 2 year licensing period and on should look like and what they both should be doing.   CE.0373000 General Credits.

 

Here is the link to sign up for the class on 6/30/21 through Lara Knipmeyer Garrell. If you have trouble, let me know and I will get you registered.

 May 2021 

Date: 052521 ...  Couple of things brought to my attention & Classes. Please read to keep          yourself out of trouble.  

I thought you would all want to know the following:

 

  1. NRS 116.31083 (7) – The every 100 day requirement to review the current financial statement and the reserves can’t be on a “consent agenda” to just accept the financials without discussion about them.  The reason that the requirement to discuss it is for the residents to know the status of both.  It was brought to my attention by the NRED and  I understand it is a new area that they will be auditing.

  2. We have recently learned that the NRED requirement to fill out form 609 when you have a reserve study prepared includes when you have just a financial update without a site visit. Until now, many have followed the advice of experts who have been told, up till now, that when a Financial Update was performed, a 609 was not required to be submitted. I think many people have previously been told that it only needs to be submitted when you do a study which meets the 5 year required on site inspection.  It is clear that now they are requiring that the form be filled out any time the reserve study is updated whether just financially or with a site inspection. Although up until now there have been mixed messages on this issue, we feel that we should conform to what the State is teaching homeowner boards.

  3. Just a reminder of the classes I have coming up.  Let me know if you want to take them as they are on Zoom.  I have quite a few people signed up, but wanted those who hadn’t seen them before to know:

Date: 051521 ...  Nevada State Board of Architecture - HOA Design Review Committee  ....         

Please see the attached MEMORANDUM from the Nevada State Board of Architecture regarding Conflicts of Interest in HOA Design Review Committees.   memorandum 

Date: 051521 ...  Just a Couple of Things That You Need to Know About ....                                       

 

  1. SB 186 is a really bad bill that has passed the state Senate and has gone to the Assembly.   Please contact your Assembly Representative and tell them how bad it is. Here is a link if you don’t know who your representatives are. https://asm.leg.state.nv.us.

  2. I only have less than 90 statute booklets left if you need any.  Please let me know so that you have them for new directors or yourself.  The new ones won’t be out until almost the end of the year as it takes that long for the Legislative Council Bureau to codify anything.

  3. I still have space open for board training on 5-20-21 at 10:00 a.m. for any new directors who may need to satisfy their education needs.  Zoom

  4. On 5-13-2021 at 9:00 a.m. during the CIC Insurance class, Ron Wright will be briefly talking about insurance carriers and COVID coverage.  CE.0298000 3 Hours General Credits. Zoom

  5. Just a reminder that there is a new class on 7/16/2021 at 1:00 p.m. On the Architectural Committee, which is the top reason nationally why associations are sued. CE.0415000 2 Hour General – Taught by Ed Song, Esq.  Zoom

  6. For those of you in Reno who had signed up for the pre-licensing classes this Spring, Key Realty Schools is letting us Zoom it to Reno while we teach in person here in Las Vegas. Only those in Reno who are interested will be able to attend via ZOOM. I have attached the schedule so that you can block off the dates and have the schedule.  You need to let me know as well since I will be the one sending the links, etc. 
    Fall 2021 CAM Schedule

  7. Last and not least, I am still saving the soda can aluminum tabs for Ronald McDonald House charities.  When I drop them off I definitely let them know that it is the HOA industry that saves these so that we have some positive news out there for a change about our industry.  Let me know if you need them picked up or need a container to save them in as I have a few left.   I have attached a flier that the LV office gave me to put in newsletters, etc. to help residents understand how important it is to save these for the families in need.   I have also attached a copy of the containers I have if you need them.  I have drilled a hole in the top of the ones I have so no one needs to touch them to drop them off.  Ronald MacDonald Tabs1     Ronald MacDonald Tabs2

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 March 2021 

Date: 032621 ... Classes and information - Classes are open to directors and managers              

I wanted to provide an update on some classes as shown below:

  1. The Companion Animal class has a new date. It will be taught again on April 30th at 10:00 a.m. for 2 hours.  We will be discussing the Animal sacrificing that has been going on and how can we restrict in on the common areas, etc.  where it is a freedom of religion issue.  Zoom class.

  2. Please find attached a flier from BrightView Landscape Service for a  3 hour class on 4-23-2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  The address to sign up for the class is on the flier.  It will be a Zoom class. Good time to get your landscaping questions answered. ... FLIER

  3. 2 more Free Board Training sessions are set up  5-20 at 10:00 p.m. and 5-27 at 6:00 p.m. The boards are loving this free training and then are taking accounting and insurance as well after attending the over view. 

  4. Surveillance Camera class is again being taught on 5-14-21  1:00 p.m. by Ed Song.  Does the recent hacking of the cameras mean anything in our industry. Sign up with me again.

  5. Understanding the reserve study, funding methods, etc. will be held on 5-18-2021 1:00 p.m. Board members can learn what they need to look for in the study.

  6. Pre-Licensing Classes – As I mentioned earlier, the Reno pre-licensing classes were canceled, but the CE classes within them were not. I have attached the schedule of those classes as they will be held on ZOOM.  ... SCHEDULE

  7. HOWEVER, the NRED will let any Reno students who signed up for the pre-licensing classes this spring take the classes on ZOOM with us even though they will be in person by that time.   Sign up with Key Realty Schools as they start on September 7th this year in LV.  I have attached the schedule for that as well, which shows the CE classes included as well. ... SCHEDULE

      

Please Note: If you wish to receive credit for attending a ZOOM class, you MUST have video and audio. We have to be able to confirm for the RED that you are there and paying attention.
We treat our ZOOM classes as we would in a regular classroom environment. Driving in a car
with the phone on the seat next to you will not suffice. You will not be admitted to the class.

Date: 031521 ... SPRING LV CAM STUDENTS - 1st Test & Couple of things ...                                       

  1. For those of you who didn’t get the first message about the 1st test that is mandatory for you to pass during the classes, it will be held this Friday at 9:00 a.m. at Key Realty Schools class room 1 at 3320 E. Flamingo Road.  It is on the North West corner just West of Pecos. The second one is on 4-15-21 at 10:00 a.m. at Key Realty Schools.

 

If you are in Reno, I have a law firm who can conduct the test, but can only host 3.   Let me know if you want me to mark you down for that or set another day with them for you to take it as I think there are 4 of you. I normally have you fill out a form so that I know where you are, but since not in person it didn’t happen this time.   Just let me know ASAP, please.

 

  1. Class #12 and #13 will be send out the end of this week.  John Leach had a conflict and we had to schedule #12 for next week.   They will be in this order #13, #12 & #15 next week.

  2. This week it will be #10, 11 and then #14 which I hope to have the handouts for you shortly as the instructor wanted to change a couple of things.

  3. Someone stated that they didn’t get the Robert’s Rules resolution and so I have attached it again.

 

Let me know if you have any questions please.

Date: 031221 ... Board of Director's Training Dates and Pre-Licensing Classes in Reno                  

The Zoom Board of Director’s training has been very successful over the last 4 months and I have individuals who were not able to get on because they became full.  I have scheduled 2 more days for board training if you have new directors who can use it or couldn’t make any of the others.    If you are facing troublesome issues with any of your directors and know that they will be taking either of the classes, let me know and I can try to cover issues without knowing I was told of their issues.

 

Here are the dates and times and please share with your directors so that they don’t try to sign up for a full class again, please. They contact me to get on the list. If you wish credit for the classes, we request that you have both audio and video (turned on). Even if your computer does not have video, your phone can act as the video cam for the class. You sign on to ZOOM on both. Be sure to turn on your camera on ZOOM on your phone.

 

May 20th at 10:00 a.m.

May 27th at 6:00 p.m.

 

When they sign up, I will send them the link and handouts a day or so before the class.  I was surprised how successful these have been or I wouldn’t waste your time or mine.  

 

I may have to cancel the Reno pre-licensing classes as we now only have 3 people signed up.  I will let you know if they are canceled, but it is not looking good. We WILL CANCEL the class if there are not at least 15 people in the class  The Fall classes will be in Las Vegas and will not be done on Zoom, unfortunately,  but in person per Key Realty Schools.

In Nevada, there is a lot of legislation that affects Common Interest Communities (CICs) and as you know, much of it isn't necessarily friendly to CIC Owners. Please continue to monitor Sara's blasts for
