 October 2021 

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.

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

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:

 

  • 6/3/2021  1:00 p.m. - Confusing Terms in the CIC – Great class for directors, but has 3 hours of Nevada Law credits for managers.  CE.0396000

  • 6/4/2021 10:00 a.m. – Explaining Special & Reserve Assessments – 1 Hour General Credits. – CE.040000

  • 7/16/2021 – 1:00 p.m.  – Architectural Issues in the CIC – CE.0415000 – 2 Hours General Credits for Managers. ARC Committees are in the top 10 D & O claims annually come here what you need to do. We will also see the new rule the State put in for using an Architect in your community, if you use one.  You will be given a copy of the letter from the Nevada State Board of Architecture. Interior Design & Residential Design that was sent up North to an association.

 

Please let me know if  you want to be part of these 3 Zoom classes so I can put you down. If you are already reserved, I will send the link and materials a day or so before the class.

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.

 January 2021 

 

Date: 012021 ... Classes and a couple of very important things to remember                                  

I have many CE classes coming up for credits that you may not know about as well as the board training classes that are full except for the April 10th class at 10:00 a.m.  

 

  1. Surveillance Cameras and the CIC – Taught by Ed Song,  Esq. – February 5th at 10:00 a.m. CE.0399000 1 Hr. General Credits

  2. Commission Orders taught by John Leach, Esq.  and Michael Schulman, Esq. 4-22-2021 at 1:00 p.m.  CE.0366000 2 Hours Nevada law (This one you sign up with Lara Knipmeyer Garrell who will send you the link.)

  3. Insurance in the CIC – April 16 at 1:00 p.m. – CE.0298000  3 Hours General Credits

  4. Financials  in the CIC – CE.0129000  3 hrs.  April 20, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Taught by Gary Lein, CPA

  5. There are all kinds of CE classes buried into the Pre-licensing classes that start in February as well.  I sent those out some time ago.  Let me know if you need the dates and schedule again.  They start on February 23, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. on Zoom. ​

  6. I also want to remind you of a very important requirement that many of you may be forgetting.  After an election, please make sure that the board determines who will be the director sitting on each committee while making decisions at the organizational meeting. NRS 82 requires that a director sit on each Committee Having Committee Charters is critical to have happy board members and committee volunteers. Their names NEED to go into the minutes as Committee members for insurance purposes as the most critical committee, the Architectural Committee, is in the top insurance claims nationally.   Here is the statute:

 

NRS 82.206  Committees of board of directors: Designation; powers; names; membership.

1.  Unless otherwise provided in the articles or bylaws, the board of directors may designate one or  more committees which, to the extent provided in the bylaws or in the resolution or resolutions designating such committee or committees, have and may exercise the powers of the board of directors in the management of the business and affairs of the corporation, and may have power to authorize the seal of the corporation to be affixed to all papers on which the corporation desires to place a seal.

2.  The committee or committees may have such name or names as may be stated in the bylaws or as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the board of directors.

3.  Each committee must have at least one director. Unless it is otherwise provided in the articles or bylaws, the board of directors may appoint natural persons who are not directors to serve on the committees.

4.  No such committee may:

(a) Amend, alter or repeal the bylaws;

(b) Elect, appoint or remove any member of any such committee or any director of the corporation;

(c) Amend or repeal the articles, adopt a plan of merger or a plan of consolidation with another 

      corporation;

(d) Authorize the sale, lease or exchange of all of the property and assets of the corporation;

(e) Authorize the voluntary dissolution of the corporation or revoke proceedings therefor;

(f)  Adopt a plan for the distribution of the assets of the corporation; or

(g) Amend, alter or repeal any resolution of the board of directors unless it provides by its terms 

      that it may be amended, altered or repealed by a committee.

      (Added to NRS by 1991, 1267; A 2009, 1687)

   7. I am still saving tabs for the Ronald McDonald house Charities and have attached a flier that you

       can use to help others save them as well.    I save them for the charity as does CAI so you can get 

       them to either of us when you can.  It would be nice to have our industry be recognized for

       something good once in a while.

 December 2020 

 

Date: 122920 ... Leadership training for Board Members in 2021 - Flier attached                            

All Board members really need ongoing education, particularly your new board members. Some may say, “I’ve been a board member for 15 years, I don’t need more education.” Yes you do! Every year, things change with laws, regulations, Division updates, etc. New legal cases involving HOA’s, Board Members, etc. The industry in general is continually evolving and always has new information to disseminate to the HOA membership.

 

I have scheduled 4 dates in 2021 for your use in getting the information out there and they will ALL be on ZOOM so that they can watch from home of where ever they want and not have to worry about groups, etc. To further assist board members in showing that they have taken advantage of continuing education for board members, I will be issuing certificates to those who attend AND have video and sound so that I can be sure that they are attentive and learning during the class.

 

I have tried to schedule them during the day, at night and on a weekend date if that helps them attend.   Below are the dates and times for you to pass on for your directors.   I will be teaching these classes and they will be 2 – 2 ½ hours depending on the questions.  Please have anyone interested contact me and I will send them the link.

 

The dates that I currently have set are as follows:

  1. Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 1:00 p.m.

  2. Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 6:00 p.m.

  3. Friday, March 19, 2021 at 1:00 p.m.

  4. Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 10:00 a.m.

Additional dates will be set throughout the year should the class be that popular.

Training Flier ..

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and I wish you a much Happier 2021.

If you manage a community that has entrance and exit gates, please make sure that in the RFP and contract that they show that the gates will be set to handle full size motorcycles. Typically, motorcycles do not trigger the gates if not adjusted properly.  If you don’t handle this issue up front, there will be an additional change which the board will be upset about and try to fight.  It is not fun if the contract does not address that.

Please find attached the next schedule for pre-licensing classes that will start here in Las Vegas in February. Likely, it will have to be conducted via ZOOM. Contact Sara Barry with questions. Enroll via Key Realty Schools.

We are also looking for CE classes that you need or would like to see hosted over the coming year.  Help us by letting us know the issues that you are facing and could use a class on, please. Contact Sara.

 

Have a wonderful Christmas and Holiday season as best you can with the messes we currently have to deal with.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!

 October 2020 

Date: 102620 ... Important Issues ... Sorry, But Important Stuff                                                             

  1. Robert’s Rules of Order Changes : As you may already know, Robert’s Rules of Order changed to the 12th edition this year and you need to comply now with the changes and possibly change your Robert’s Rules Resolution.  I watched an Ombudsman seminar on this issues as they have ordered the latest edition and telling any homeowner what needs to be done now.  You need to make sure that your board has a resolution.    A revised version, based on the Ombudsman’s training staff’s comments, can be found up on our website www.hoasupport.com/library under "meetings'.  CAI had a good article from Jim Slaughter, Esq. too going over some of the changes and I have attached a copy if you didn’t get it. He is one of the experts in this area and discusses some of the changes and I have included his chart that you may want to give to your boards on when and how to handle issues.
     

  2. NACM has a really good 1 hour class they are hosting:  It was put together after another class where this issue came up. Non-owned and Hired Autos has many misunderstandings in coverage.  You think you are on company business and you should be covered by your company, right.   Not necessarily and you need to ensure the same for your directors, etc. It will be taught on 11-5-2020, is a 1 hour class on Zoom.    If you wish to join the class contact NACM at NACM@NACMonline.net
     

  3. More classes:  Remember to check the NRED website for more noticed classes as there are more being offered through the end of this week and next month.  Here is the link if you don’t go there regularly.  While this COVID mess is going on, most of them are virtual and the North and the South schedule should be the same, but double check just in case. http://red.nv.gov/Content/Education/Calendars/CIC/   The link also shows when the pre-licensing classes will be held again in the North and the South.   Reno pre-licensing classes have been moved to the Spring too this coming year starting in April.  I just wanted you to be given a head’s up and hopefully they will be in person vs. virtually next year.

Date: 102020 ... Registration for the SNWA Water Resources and Conservation Seminar             

Many of you have taken the Southern Nevada Water Authority class, but many have not.  It is really a good class for your directors and ARC people to take to see how they can help us in the drought time.  Since we have had little rain this year so far, it is only going to get worse and the grass needs to go along with other ways to conserve water.   We live in a desert and need to know that EVERYONE needs to help in our efforts to conserve water.  Can you imagine how you will feel if you didn’t at least try to help the system and it gets really worse.  The link to sign up is below and if you want credits, let me know too so that I can have your certificate ready.

Date: 101320 ... How many of your Associations that have surveillance camera's have a data storage policy?  Fair Housing class as well. 

 

  1. Because of the Surveillance class being taught by Ed Son recently, the issue came up with the storage of data on the cameras and are they considered “records”.   We asked the Ombudsman’s office and this is what we were told”

 

“Thank you for the email to Mr. Foger. Mr. Foger has stated that the association should come up with it's
own policy for storing camera footage. It really does not fall under the requirements for association records.”

So – if you have surveillance camera’s and don’t have a policy, it needs to be on your next agendas.  

 

  1. Class on Friday – Discrimination Restrictions and Prohibitions 2 hour Nevada Law CE class will be held this Friday, 10/16/20  at 1:00 – CE.0391000 – We talk about the Veteran who filed a Fair Housing claim because the association sent him a letter about his son’s basketball hoop.   It is a good class and taught by Greg Kerr, Esq.  Let me know if you wish to attend, please. It is free.
     

  2. Starting next week, there are a lot of CE classes on Zoom tucked into the pre-licensing classes at Key Realty Schools as well.   I have attached that schedule so that you can see the classes that have credits.  Fall CAM schedule at KEY
