  1. Many of you have been saving the metal soda tabs for me to get to the Ronald McDonald House to help support their cause.  I will be in Reno in August and will pick up any that you all have been saving for me.  In Vegas, Let me know as I can pick them up when you get a few.  I have attached a flier for you to put in your newsletters to help collect them and if you want a jar, I can try to get you one that has a picture on it and a hole cut in the top so no one has to touch anything.

  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

  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

   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.

Date: 010821 ... Updated Class. - Being a Supervisory CAM licensee & More                                     

Many of you get your Supervisory Community Manager license and don’t really understand the importance of this license.   This class has been set to help you understand your duties and what is required of you to help keep you out of trouble since you will be held responsible for anything that happens in your office.   The class is being held at 9:00 a.m. on January 14th and being taught by Normal Rosensteel and Lara K Garrell.  It will be held on ZOOM and is a 3 hour class.   Here is the link for you to sign up for the class by Lara who will be hosting it.

 

Hi there. Here is the link to email blast for folks to register for class:

Two other issues:

 

  1. The Leadership class for directors facilitated and taught by Sara Barry has been very popular and the January and February classes are full.  March and April are still open if you want to recommend them.   They will be done on Zoom regardless of the COVID status.  Have people sign up with me, please as I will be teaching it and hosting it.  I will send them the link and handouts a couple of days before. If you are having specific problems with a board and know that they will be attending a session, let me know and I can try to work it in without them know it was brought to my attention. Please be advised that anyone who wishes to receive a certificate confirming their attendance at the class must have acceptable audio and video. No excuses for not having video will be accepted as phones, tablets and cam equipped PC's are all ZOOM capable.  We must be able to confirm your attendance and involvement in order to issue a certificate if you wish to receive one.

 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.

Date: 120820 ... Gate Contracts in Gated Communities and Upcoming Classes                               

For those of you who need credits there will be a ZOOM class hosted by Lara Garrell on 12-16-2020 at 1:00 p.m. on Non Profit Directors and Officer’s class.  Here is the link to sign up.


https://campaignlp.constantcontact.com/forms/response?id=j6Wtx_qfszSRX19BWNEZ2hLu33Am_XJNfw9U2mC1KJTPJuu6pPpLuoY0upB65VIRK-FT3pk1VfdKCAA5hd9xPVuo_m19FO3MExQMl00tBylFl2m0Z2MMICJQH2UVh3gEKPmtuvvjtSXb4riYQfRdFDde0a4k5OXm7PcpdrWEsassHfsKuLMZvsOLv66PVNPjuzWk_BooTyXFYMefTsr-aw&encVer=1&c=&ch=
 

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. 

 

Registration for the SNWA Water Resources and Conservation Seminar

Please register for SNWA Water Resources and Conservation Seminar on Oct 23, 2020 1:00 PM PDT at:  https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2432873295267088142

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

  1. Pre-licensing Classes will definitely be held virtually now until the Governor declares that Nevada is out of the emergency status.  That means that anyone taking the Reno or the Las Vegas Pre-licensing classes will sign up with Key Realty Schools and take them on line where Key requires a camera with no exceptions. You sign up with Key Realty Schools who will create a portal where all of the links for the 60 hours will be given.  Let me know if you need the Reno schedule and the Las Vegas Schedule, again please.  I need to have at least 15 people to hold them so please don’t wait to sign up students. 702-313-7000 or http://www.keyrealtyschool.com/enroll/ and scroll down to the bottom for Reno and Law Vegas sign ups.

 July 2020 

Date: 071520 ... Short Term Rentals from an Insurance Point of View, Architectural Committee Use  Class & Pre-Licensing Classes  

  1. This is just a reminder about the Short Term Rentals From an Insurance Point of View class that is being taught on 7-24-2020 at 1:00 p.m.   It was taught back on 6/30/2020, but not all of you could make it and  many of your directors NEED this class to understand the problem they may encounter when a claim comes up from one of the renters when something happens on the common area.  It is a serious problem.    Please sign up with me and I will get you the link and the materials for the class.  It really is a very good class taught by Ron Wright.

  2. The Two Architectural Committee classes are full now, but we have scheduled it again via zoom on 8/14/2020 at 1:00 p.m. Recommend that your directors and Committee members sign up, please.

  3. It appears that at least until the Governor stops the shutdown that the NRED is allowing virtual classes for the pre-licensing students, which would include the CE classes stuck in the middle of them.  I will get you more information when I get a link, etc., but they start in Reno on August 25th and in Las Vegas on October 7th.  I have attached the two schedules so that you have the dates.

  4. We do the pre-licensing classes in Reno in the daytime, 2 classes a day for 3 days a week.  One is at 9:00 and the other starts at 1:00 , would you like to have the Vegas classes changed that way as well if they are on Zoom?   The Las Vegas classes are currently from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. stretched over a longer period of time. I am trying to make a decision and your input would really help. The 2 tests that are conducted for those classes will be in person at KEY with only under 10 arriving at each specific interval to ensure their safety.  

  5. All ZOOM credit classes will require that attendees be signed in AT LEAST 15 minutes before class starts. The classroom will be turned on at least 30 minutes prior to start of class. Anyone signing in later than 10 minutes after the hour is late and will not get credit. I have to certify to the division that attendees have attended the class for the required length of time. Video must be available for the entire length of the class.

I have five classes to advise you of at this point.  All five  are on ZOOM.

 

  1. The NRED asked me to put the Capital Improvement’s class together for them as managers are making huge mistakes. It was scheduled to be held at the NACM Expo, but WRSS&R had to cancel it because of the firms COVID 19 safety policy.   The class will instead be taught via Zoom instead on 7-29-2020 at 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m..    Let me know if you wish to attend and I can send you the link.
     

  2. Two Discriminatory Restrictions and Prohibitions classes were going to be held on person on 7/23 and 7/24 (Reno and Las Vegas), but got consolidated into one  Zoom for 7/23 at 9:00 a.m.CE.0391000 2 hours Nevada Law credits.  You RSVP with me and I send you the link, please.
     

  3. One of the two new CE Classes are on insurance – Nonprofit Director’s and Officer’s Insurance Policies CE.0296000  on 8/6/2020 at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  This is being hosted by Lara Knipmeyer - Garrell of GKL Consulting, LLC and to RSVP for this class, please e-mail her at:  larakgarrell@outlook.com

Date: 070620 Update ...  New class - Architectural committees.                                                           

As Architectural Committees are in the top 10 law suits that are forwarded to insurance companies, I created a class on Architectural Committees and Their Use  that will be taught by Ed Song, Esq. with the LKG law firm on 7-22-2020 at 9:00 a.m.   It is a 2 hour ZOOM class.   I have attached the notice that went into the NRED for you to sign up.  You will be sent the link for the class when you sign up with Lara who will be facilitating this for us. We appreciate her doing this. We are limited to 100 so please RSVP ASAP.  Link to NRED Notice

 

I also wanted you to know that I have about 150 statute Booklets left if you need any. Just let me know.

 

I wanted to mention as well that since the NRED changed their minds on the virtual classes through July, the Drought/Water class will be taught on ZOOM for credits now.  Let me know if you wish to attend and I will send you the link when I get it from them. It will be taught on 7-23-2020 at 1:00 p.m. and is a 2 hour CE. class.

Update ... As The Architectural Committee Class is so popular this month, we agreed to set up another date for people to sign up who couldn’t make the July 22nd class at 9:00 a.m. on ZOOM.   The NRED has approved the second posting and it will be taught on 7-30-2020 at 1:00 p.m.  

 

This would be a great time for directors and/or ARC Committee members to sign up as well.  Please let me know as it has been posted on the NRED’s site for 2 hours of credits for managers and it would really help directors/committees to stay out of trouble here in Nevada since everything is so confidential.

 

Lara K Garrell will again send the link as she is facilitating the class for me so that there are no snags since she does such a good job.

 June 2020 

​​

 

Date: 062520 ...  Water Conservation class for directors & Zoom Conversational Discussions.  

 

The 7-23-2020 Water (drought and Clark County)  class will still be taught via Go To Webinar, but will not have credits for CAM’s as the NRED won’t approve them after 6-30-2020 unless we totally resubmit, but we are hoping to get a lot of homeowners and directors to attend.  The City Of Henderson was going to host this in their offices, but are not comfortable with groups in their facility. 

 

Please forward to you boards and they can handle up to 100 so interested homeowners can attend as well virtually. - Please let me know if you are interested in attending as once I get the link I can send to you with the materials. 

 

One last question to those who get this.  How many of the board members and homeowners out there would like free Zoom classes, discussion groups, etc. on topics that are of interest to a lot of people?  It seems to be the perfect venue to get questions answered and  the industry to get issues out to people quickly. Please let me know if this sounds good so that I can get it started.

Date: 060920 ...  For those of you looking for a free and good 2  hour class - New one just post- ed and is a good one.  

On 6-30-2020 at 9:00 a.m. a new 2 hour class will be taught using ZOOM.  It is Short Term Rentals from an Insurance point of view.  Ron Wright will teach it and the last time it was taught in Tahoe (the only time it has been taught) , the room was full and there were many board members and managers in attendance who learned a lot.

 

There are a lot of things that people don’t think about when units are being rented out for the AIRBNB time rentals when the documents don’t allow it.  Ron does a good job over covering the issues that arise and what you need to be aware of in this area.   Let me know if you wish to attend and I will send you the link and the documents, please.

 

I do also have a few statute books left if anyone needs them.  Just let me know.

Date: 060620 ...  August Pre-Licensing CAM Classes ...                                                                             

Because of everything that's going on, I wanted to make sure we had enough students to continue with the Reno Pre-Licensing classes starting on 8-25-2020 at 9:00 a.m. There must be at least 12 committed students signed up by 8/17 before I will commit to do the classes.

 

Please let me know if you will have students attending so I can make plans to hold them or cancel, please. 

 

I have attached the schedule which shows the classes that have CE credits.  The Developer Transition will have credits as well, but it is currently in the NRED for approval.

  May 2020 

 

 

Date: 053020 ...  Classes - Taking and Re-Taking ...                                                                                     

​​

  1. I just got off the phone with Susan Clark, the Licensing Supervisor with the Nevada Real Estate Division.   I wanted clarification on classes and retaking them for reserve study specialists.

    Managers cannot retake the same class during the next licensing period for credits, but the law does not say the same thing for reserve study specialists.   As she mentioned there are only 24 licensed reserve study specialists now in Nevada and the law is different for reserve study providers.  

    She asked me to remind you to make sure to renew your licenses before they expire even if you have not taken the classes.  You can send it in with a letter stating you are working on the classes, because of the COVID-19, with the payment and follow up with the classes when offered for them to marry up.
     

  2. The financial class is scheduled for 6-19-2020 at 9:00 a.m. until noon to give those who need it the 3 hours of financials.   Gary Lein, CPA will also be briefly talking about the new conditions that are expected to go into effect soon, which will require the financials managers give you to be different.   You will have to look at the liabilities to see the money in reserves, etc.   I will keep you up to date on WHEN and IF these go into effect, but he will provide a set of financials for you to look at to see how they will look.   I will send the link to the class as soon as it is set up, but wanted you to mar5k your calendars.

Date: 051520 ...  Statute Booklets and Southern Nevada Water Class for directors.                      

  1. I just ordered 500 more of the 2019 statute booklets and won’t be printing any more after this.  If you would like me to put a hold on some for you now so that I can let you know when they are ready, please do so now.  Because of a smaller order, however, the cost is $10.50 each now instead of the $9.95 before.  Just let me know ASAP.
     

  2. As you know, we are in a serious drought mode and we need to get the info out to our directors and Committee Members.  The 2 hour class that the Water District has now is on Zoom so that there is no rushing to find the place for directors. 

 

      Please let me know if there is an interest and I will set up a date for them to teach the class.
