 November 2019 

Date: 110619 ... Very Important Class ... Older Associations with New Problems                           

I am really surprised we don’t have more people signed up for this class as it is one that the attorneys really think you need to help your associations out of trouble.  It is a new class and has not been taught up there before.  I will be attending.

 

I have attached the flier, but it is about associations and things that they are not proactively taking care of in their communities. Older Associations with New Problems  - CE.0386000 2 hours General Credits.

 

I actually had to teach it in Mesquite Nevada as Schulman had a problem and it went over very well for directors as well.   It got them thinking.  We could teach it next year to your directors if you have an interest after attending the class.

Date: 110619 ... Very Important Class ... Older Associations with New Problems                           

There are so many things that board members,  and at times managers, don’t think about as association’s age.  Gayle Kern, Esq. wanted me to put this class together some time ago because of issues she keeps dealing with on associations.  We are not just talking about OLD associations, but some as young as 10 years as well. 

 

On 12-6-19, NACM will be teaching the two hour class from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  I helped teach it in Mesquite last week and directors were allowed at this class.  They finally got it as the materials were covered.  Sign up with Lara at  Larakgarrell@outlook.com  - Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors.   Hopefully, this class won’t be canceled as the 11/15 had to be.  RSVP as soon as possible, please. Class Flier.

 

If you find the class helpful, we would be happy to teach it after the first of the year to your directors as they need it too.

I wanted to get your opinions as well, please.  Two more CE classes are scheduled up there before the end of the year  and I am concerned about attendance.  I will be flying up for both as they are critical classes, but can change my plans if there won’t be a good attendance.

 

  1.  11-15-19   10:00 a.m. – Noon - Short Term Rentals for the Insurance Prospective – Ron Wright and I taught this in Incline Village recently and the room was filled with questions from the managers and some directors.  They had serious concerns about what was discussed. Link to Flier

  2. 12-6-19 – 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Old Associations with New Problems – Gayle Kern will teach this and helped put this together because of what she keeps seeing in the older communities. 

 

Please let me know if there is an interest, based on the dates, as they are both really good classes and want to be able to get as many of you there who have an interest.  Because of the two Holiday’s during those months, we want to do what is best for YOU!!!!!!

Date: 100819 ... SB 117 - Removing Discriminatory Restrictions in the documents                        

Recently a legislative update was held at the Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors and they discussed SB 117.  At the time, there was no form out to use for this purpose in cleaning up those discriminatory documents.  Now there is and the link is shown below by the NRED.

 

Most of the more recent documents shouldn't have discriminatory language in them, but older ones “might”.  The Ombudsman’s office recently let everyone know that there is a form now to record that will remove such language, Form 655, declaring those provisions as void.  You should probably talk with legal counsel in doing so since I think the intent was to get it out of the documents completely if it forbids or restricts the use, conveyance, encumbrance leasing or mortgaging of such property to any persons based on race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, familial status, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. I don’t think it would take a vote of the owners to comply with state law.

 

Here is the link:

If I hear of any updates, I will try to keep you apprised.

Class on 10-10-19 - 9:00 a.m. - Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors                                                                 

Lara Garrell,  board member for  NACM (Nevada Association of Community Managers) in the North, just noticed a class on 10-10-19 called CIC – Meetings, Members & Elections, which is a 3 hour law class and is free to NACM  members and starts at 9:00 at the Reno Sparks Assn. Of Realtors.  Gayle A. Kern, Esq, will be the speaker.

 

The one thing that was not mentioned on her flier was that the Ombudsman’s Office is expecting you to take minutes/records of meetings that didn’t happen. Oops!  The Budget Ratification  meeting is one of those examples.  You will be discussing a copy of a sample Minutes/Record document that will help you keep them happy. 

 

Lara is taking reservations at larakgarrell@outlook.com – I attached the flier should you need that again.

Pre-licensing Classes start next Tuesday  10-1-19                                                                                    

I will be sending out the materials to the new pre-licensing students Friday and want to make sure that if any of you have delayed signing people up, please do so now so that they don’t miss out.  Key Realty Schools sign up is at the following link.  I also need to be given the name when you sign them up please.   http://www.keyrealtyschool.com/courses/association-management/pre-licensing

 

I also need to be given the name as they don’t necessarily give me the name of the students, just the name of who paid, etc.    I have attached the schedule, which has the CE classes as well on it as there are classes with law credits buried in them.

 

For those of you who don’t have the address for the class tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. it is being held at FirstService Residential at 8290 Arville, 2nd floor  and being taught by John Leach, Esq. and Michael Schulman, Esq.   If for some reason you can’t make the class, I have a waiting list and would like to know if you won’t be attending, please.

I am concerned that not many people are signed up for the Legislative Update this Friday with NACM.  If you are a member, it is free and membership for a full year is only $60.  I know people are getting law credits other ways now, but this class is a must attend to hear about the real serious issues we have with the resale package now and the construction defect area.  There are many, many, many more, but I really think you need to attend.  It is at the Reno Sparks Assoc of Realtors at 9:00 a.m. 

 

The attached flier has more information, but this is concerning as there are many changes and if you wait for the next one you may end up with issues in some of the areas.  You can have all law credits in renewing you license, but these three hours are critical.

 

She will be opening it up to directors by Tuesday if Lara has not heard from you as she reserved both rooms at their center.

We only have 8 people signed up for the new Supervisory CAM class and this is a brand new class that was put together because the instructors of the old one thought it was out dated and difficult to teach.  This is a much better class and I hope that more people will sign up.  It is called “Being an Effective Supervisor”   CE.0373000 – 3 Hours  General. 

 

It is free to CAMEO members.  This is an organization of the Company Owners and the classes are taught for what they think their managers need.  Please contact me and Keri if you wish to be there so we have enough copies, please. 

 

Provisional are recommended to attend as well so that they can see what the Supervisory CAM should be doing.   Keri can be reached at Keri Hawkins kerihawkins13@gmail.com

 

Hope to see more of you there. If for some reason a Friday afternoon class is a problem, please let me know so that we don’t book them again on Friday.

Please find attached a flier that you can use if you manage associations in Tahoe.  We will be teaching a class on Short Term Rentals from the Insurance prospective (Ron Wright, Mike Menath and Sara Barry).  Many people don’t think about the insurance implications when the City allows it and the association’s insurance doesn’t.  Think about even ANY common area you have and someone is hurt.    

 

This is the first time it has been taught from this angle.   9-6-19 at 1:00 p.m. in Tahoe.  See flier for more information, but you book through me, please.

NACM Members…

This is a friendly reminder to be sure and register to attend this Thursday’s CE Class.

View Flier 

Expiring Association's & more information                                                                                               

It has been brought to my attention that some of your companies are watching your accounts (instead of you) to see if they are in good status, revoked or will expire soon.  Way too many times in the pre-licensing classes when the students get their home work to look up an association they find that the association they look at is in default, revoked or has expired.  I got in trouble with a manager once when I didn’t know who managed an association and doing research for the law firm I worked for saw one was in default.  I contacted the company who was shown on the website and after sending it to the owner, the manager contacted me and was ticked at me for getting him in trouble.”  UGH

 

I think the NRED could take the manager to task if they have not advised the board of all of the above.    The first thing when you get an account, you need to look them up on the Secretary of State’s site to see their status. 

 

If it was me and one of my associations expires, I would have it in writing to the board that they contact legal counsel and seek to change the document it got buried in.  My own master association expires in the future and as it is somewhere out there, but no one is doing anything and won’t until it is ready to expire if someone is paying attention.    

 

Just a reminder that the pre-licensing classes start next week in RNO and I have attached the flier.   The classes will be held and the CE Classes are buried in the listing of classes. They are $20 each for CE Credits.  I have attached the flier showing dates and which have credits.  See Schedule

 

Also, CAMEO has a brand new Supervisory Community Manager class that will be taught in RNO at the EBMC basement training room on 8-30-19 at 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.   It is called Being An Effective Supervisor   CE.0373000 CAM 3 Hours of General credits.  It is being taught by Donna Zanetti, Esq., Lara Garrell, and myself.   Norm Rosensteel had a family issue or he would be teaching as well.  I even recommend that your Provisional’s attend this class so that they know why you may be requiring some things.

 

Have a good week.

Sorry to send two e-mails in one day, but......                                                                                           

I just got the students names from Key Realty Schools and there are only 9 students signed up for the classes that start on August 14.  If you are holding off registering someone, please don’t wait until the last day.  For me to come up there  for a month to do the classes there is a tremendous expense, which includes copies, etc. , as Key doesn’t make all of the copies the students get.   Wish I had gotten the message from them earlier so that I didn’t have to bug you twice.

 

Also, a couple of the students only have an e-mail address without a name. I need their full name to do the sign in sheets. 

 

Have a good week, but let me know ASAP if you have more people who will be attending.

CAMEO - New Reno Class - Being an Effective Supervisor                                                                     

Below is a totally new class being taught up in Reno offered by CAMEO.  It is free to Member managers and there is a fee for non-members. This has a new CE number if you took the old class. If you are a CAM and thinking about getting your Supervisory license because you have “put in the time”, come hear what you need to know.  Provisionals are invited to hear what interaction should be happening with their Supervisory CAM.

A lot of the new class is based on what the industry sees as Supervisory Managers doing incorrectly or not doing at all.

All of you on this blast know the difference in Property Management and Community Management.

 

Key Realty Schools, however, is in both areas and they are looking for a licensed Property Manager to help  them teach the 24 hour Property Management pre-licensing classes in the North.  If you have the experience and desire to help people do this right, now would be the time to contact them.   You would talk to Mike Federwitz at 702-313-7000 or contact him at  mike@keynv.com

 

He needs help with teaching the 24 hour pre-licensing classes and is looking for someone to help him do it right.  Someone with a dual license would be perfect as you could help new Property Managers understand HOAs as well.  I don’t have a Real Estate license or a Property Manager license or I would consider it.

Nevada Law class for Reserve Study Providers  - I don't have many e-mail address so please pass on. 

Because of the many complaints I got from reserve study providers on the “law” classes that they had to take to get their license renewed I have put a class together.  The reserve study providers felt that the law classes they attended had nothing to do with their license, which was correct most of the time.

 

I just put together a law class to be taught with two attorneys that is all about reserves studies and Nevada laws. It was approved today. Here are the specific. 

 

Reserve Studies & Nevada Specific Laws  - CE.0374000  - 3 Hours.

 

It has credits for CAM’s and Reserve Study Specialists. CAM’s can get credits too as they need to know more as well about the laws vs. what they are told by their bosses, many of whom have never been through the full 60 hour CAM classes, etc.

 

Please let me know if you or your staff have an interest in me setting this up and based on license renewals, how soon would you need it to be taught.  I know this is a busy time because of budgets, etc. and was thinking about January for the class.  Please give me your thoughts and pass this on to your other providers if appropriate.

August Pre-Licensing Classes in the North.  - CE Class change!!!!                                                        

Are any of you holding off on registering yourself or staff for the pre-licensing classes as I don’t have enough students yet to teach the classes.   I have a few people lined up for some of the CE classes tucked in them, including law credits, but I need at least 2 – 3 more to make it worth the huge expense I incur in doing these classes.  

 

Please let me know ASAP if you have some people who will be attending and get them registered ASAP as well as I need to start making the handouts and it gets expensive.

 

I have attached the schedule and if you have signed up for CE classes, note that the insurance class and the reserve class had to be swapped because of instructor issues. ... View Schedule

CAI 2 Hour Nevada Law class. - July 30th  9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.                                                        

CAI asked me to remind you of this July 30th CE class. Interesting that the class is being taught by the State of Nevada Ombudsman’s Program Training Officer, Antonio Brown.   It is called HOA Elections and NRS 116 – CE.0310000-CAM Law Credits.  They bring in the control from declarant and the board’s need to exercise ordinary and reasonable care.

 

Most of the times these law classes are taught by attorneys so they must be teaching it to stress those things that they see wrong done by Managers. It is open to Board Members as well. 

 

Here is where you register.   http://www.cvent.com/d/wyq96n

$25 for CAI Members and $45 for Non-members.  

 

  • Where:

  • Siena Community Association
    10525 Siena Monte Ave.
    Las Vegas, Nevada 89135
    702-648-8408 (CAI office)

 

********************************************************************************************************************

I have also attached the schedule for the pre-licensing classes that start on October 1st this year.   Please get anyone signed up ASAP or sign up for the CE classes buried in the classes so we know the classes will be taught.... View Schedule

********************************************************************************************************************

 

One last thing.  I had 95 people signed up for the Drought class yesterday and guess how many people showed up after I had the City of Henderson get me a bigger room? ... 47 – It's extremely embarrassing for me and I even sent a reminder of the class the day before.  UGH! I know things happen, but please let the sponsor of the class know at least 24 hrs ahead so that people don't make plans for the alleged number of students and don't do what I did and was embarrassed at the turnout.  A few of you let me know and it was appreciated. In the future, I may start publishing the names of those who continually stand me up. This happens with almost every class, particularly where managers are involved. Not very professional.

Date: 072319 ... Reminder about class tomorrow at City of Henderson at 1:00 p.m. - 240 Water Street  7/24/19  

Apparently many of you didn’t get or didn't look at the message I sent that the City of Henderson moved the class to 1:00 tomorrow.  This is just a reminder about the 2 hour class about drought/conservation and how the Water Department is looking for us all to help.

 

If you can’t be there, please let me know so that the Southern Nevada Water District and I don’t make a lot of extra copies of their presentation for no reason. 

 

240 Water Street in the City Counsel Chambers as we overfilled the original room.

Date: 070519 ... Couple of Issues - If you couldn't attend the Aquatic class where the                  regulations on pools changed on 7-1-19, I have a solution for you.  

Jeremy Harper with the Southern Nevada Water Authority sent me an e-mail that has an overview of the regulations that go into effect on 7-1-19.   I put it up on www.hoasupport.com   It is on the front page in the middle.  I will be putting many more of my notices up there to save time and bothering you if you don’t care.

 

Two other things you need to be aware of:

 

  1. Since -5-8-19 – You can’t go after Federal employees if they are delinquent when the government shuts down like it did within the last year.  Make sure that you have your collection policies updated, again, this year and the notice to go out with it reviewed by legal counsel, please, to include the notice to owners.  My neighbors who both work for the Federal Government said that they can’t give you copies of their employee card, but there are other forms that they can give redacting anything that is too confidential.

  2. In affect already, also, is the requirement that any resale pages that go out have to be good for 90 days, not the past it was 15 days.  You need to take new reserve costs, late fees, fines, etc. that MAY occur within that window or they won’t have to pay it.

 

If you want to mark your calendars this far out, on September 27, 2019 at 1:00 p.m., I will be teaching a new class that is called CIC Commission orders for the Community Manager.  It goes over the files from 2015 forward on what managers had their hands slapped.  It will be taught by Michael Schulman, Esq. & Gayle Kern, Esq.  I take the reservations and it has 3 hour of Nevada Law Credits.  Please include your license number when you RSVP.

 

Here is the link to check for other classes coming up.  http://red.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/rednvgov/Content/Education/Calendars/camcelv.pdf

 June 2019 

Date:  062919 ... Class in Reno - Expiring Associations - July 11, 2019 - 9:00 a.m.                              

The Tahoe and Reno area have more expiring associations than anywhere else in the State.  I find it interesting as to why a developer would do this in the first place, but…….

 

Michael Schulman, Esq. will be teaching a 2 hour class for NACM on this area that was actually requested by the NRED because of board members wanting to know what to do as well as how to terminate their association as they maybe only own one postal box in the middle of their community.

 

Michael taught it yesterday here in Las Vegas and there were some very interesting stories in this area with which managers have had deal.

 

In the pre-licensing classes up there, the first homework assignment is to look up an association on the SOS site to see if it is in good standing.  Almost every class has someone come back with a problem.

 

Several managers commented that it is the company’s responsibility to check on this.  Guess who will be held responsible if the association incurs tremendous expense to reactivate their Nevada corporation and the NRED has requested this class?........

 

See the attached flier and register ASAP, please, including your license number.

 May 2019 

Date: 053019 ...  Commission Agenda  6-4-19 - Lots of hearings again                                                 

Please find attached the agenda for the Commission Meeting on 6-4-19 and remember that you can get up to 6 hours of credits for attending the meeting.  You sign in and out like normal classes and they will get you your certificate afterwards.

 

CAMEO has a Fire Inspection class as well on 6-6-19.  I have attached the official notice that the NRED got, which shows all of the information including time location, etc.   A City of Las Vegas Fire Inspector does the class and talks about what he sees that you miss.

 April 2019 

Date: 042919 ... New Class on Violations                                                                                                     

VIOLATIONS OF NRS 116

 

By Sara E. Barry – 4-29-19 - UNLV Certified Paralegal and Legal Secretary, licensed Community Association Manager and Nevada Property & Casualty Insurance producer

I think you will find it interesting to see what NRS or NAC regulations have been violated the most in our industry.   Many of the individuals violated multiple provisions, but some rose to the top of the list with the most violations.

I have a class that just got approved from the NRED and it is very interesting. It is scheduled to be taught in Reno first in June and Las Vegas will be scheduled sometime soon.

In putting this class together and getting approval for credits, it could have been a 4-hour law class (and should have been), but the Ombudsman’s office would only allow me to go back to 2015 vs. 2012, which I had planned on discussing.  It ended up a 2-hour Nevada Law Credit class with 2015 – 2019 violations only.  Some of the 2012 – 2014 years had the worst violations with Millions of Dollars being stolen, etc.

Below are the most common violations and they start with the most violated and going down from there:

 

#1 – NAC 116A.355 (1) (a) (1) – Unprofessional Conduct

#2 – NRS 116A.630 (1) (a) – Didn’t act as a fiduciary

#3 – NRS 116A.630 (1) (b) - Didn’t exercise ordinary & reasonable care in performance of duties.

#4 – NAC 116A.355 (1) (a) (2) - Showed professional incompetence

#5 – NAC 116A.355 (3) (a) – Demonstrated a significant lack of ability, knowledge or fitness to perform a duty or obligation to a client.

#6 – NAC 116A.355 (3) (b) – Failed to exercise reasonable skill and care with respect to a duty or obligation owed to a client.

#7 – NRS 116A.630 (2) (a) – Didn’t comply with all federal state or local laws regulations or ordinance.

#8 – NRS 116A.400 (1) - No License - Acted as a community manager without a license.

#9 – NAC 116A.355 (4) (g) – Failed to act in the best interest of the client.

#10 – NRS 116A.640 (2) (a) – Failed to comply with a request of the division to provide documents.

#11 – NAC 116A.345 (2) (a) – Failed to comply with a request by the Division to produce documents.

#12 – NAC 116A.345 (2) (c) – Concealed facts or documents relating to the business of a client.

#13 – NRS 116A.630 (6) (a) – Didn’t ensure that all times the financial transactions of a client were accurate and properly documented.

#14 – NRS 116A.630 (10) – Didn’t cooperate with the Division in resolving complaints filed with the Division.

#15 – NAC 116A.355 (2) (i) – Exceeded the authority granted to him or her by the client.

#16 – NRS 116A.630 (6) (b) – Were no policies or procedures designed to provide reasonable assurance in the reliability of the financial reporting.

#17 – NRS 116A.630 (15) – Did not maintain internal accounting controls, including, without limitation, segregation of incompatible accounting functions.

#18 – NAC 116A.355 (2) (f) – Failed to cooperate with the division in an investigation, which including failure to produce documents.

#19 – NRS 116A.640 (2) (C) - Concealing facts or documents relating to the business of a client.

#20 – NRS 116.3103 (Through NAC 116.405)   No financial statements and acted outside authority granted in the documents. 

There were many more, but with only 1 – 4 people violating them it would take up 3 pages to list them.  It took me a while to compile them, as early on, the actual statute was not shown on the violation, just the name, etc.

 

Hopefully, you will be able to attend one of the classes. I did this to help keep you out of trouble and to make sure you were aware of these violations and the importance of acting as a fiduciary for your board of directors EVEN IF they make all of the decisions.  Covering your tail is important as those CYA letters can help you get out of trouble should the board not listen.  These letters/messages would definitely help in the event of a lawsuit.

 

Unfortunately, I was asked to be an expert witness in two lawsuits in Nevada where I spent many hours reading minutes and listening to tapes of meetings to try to not only hear if the defense was warranted, but to try to get the managers kicked out of these law suits.  However, there were NO comments in the meeting minutes, on the multiple hours of tapes and NO CYA letters or e-mails sent to the board by the manager advising them not to do the things that were brought up in these law suits.

 

Can you imagine how boring it was to listen to over 50 hours of board meeting tapes just to try to protect YOU, the manager, only to find nothing in the minutes or tapes.  PLEASE protect yourself as you never know when you will need it and try to attend the class. This article won’t give you all the information you need to know since the attorneys teaching the class will cover what the manager could or should have done to stay out of trouble.          

 

The main reason that I am posting this article is to get you to consider coming to the class hear what these people did to warrant fines and appearances before our Commission for Common Interest Communities and Condo Hotels? 

Date: 041619 ... Classes and AB 369                                                                                                               

  1. I know it seems early to everyone, but I need to know if there will be enough students to hold the pre-licensing classes in August in the Reno area.  I have to make reservations to be up there and get a good spot.  Please let me know if you will have students attending as I need at least 10. 
     

  2. If you feel like you have not been getting my blasts, they are always posted on www.hoasupport.com
     

  3. AB 369 passed out of Committee and we are in for deep trouble.  If you or your board members have not contacted their representative yet, they need to do so now before it goes to a vote of the whole Assembly.   This bill takes away the Super Priority position we have had since 1991 and makes you go to small claims court to take action.  This will cause managers a ton more work and be scary for homeowners who are paying their assessments as you never know which judge you will get on these requests.  Please have them contact their representatives and if they can’t tell, here is how they an tell which district they are in. http://mapserve1.leg.state.nv.us/whoRU/   Just go to the link, hold your cursor over the area and you can see who their representative is.  Then go to this link and their phone number and e-mail addresses are shown.
    Senate = https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Legislator/A/Senate  and,  
    Assembly = https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Legislator/A/Assembly/   Please help us stop this bill that has obviously been paid for or pushed by the banking industry.

 March 2019 

Date: 032719 ... REALLY NEED YOUR HELP IN THE LEGISLATURE AGAIN.   Please don't ignore this message. 

A bill just popped out that would be very detrimental to associations.   This has to be killed.  Below is a comment from one of the attorneys  in the industry.   Please contact your legislator to put a stop to this.

 

“ If this Bill passes it eliminates the super priority and would have a damaging effect on HOA finances. Thus, the Bill needs to be killed. We need to use every possible resource available on this one. “

 

It is AB 369  and here is the link:

https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Bill/6697/Text

 

Please get it out to all of your directors and show up to testify when the meetings are held.  I will try to keep you in the loop, but hopefully the CAMEO lobbyist, CACM Lobbyist and CAI Lobbyist are all on this to help us stop it.

 

This second link is where you can watch to see when it will be coming before a committee:

 https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Bill/6697/Overview

 

The sponsor of the bill is attached, but call or e-mail to get her attention.  She is in District 41 and here is the link to the map to show where her district is located:

https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Division/Research/Districts/Reapp/2011/Final/Assembly/ASM2011_District41.pdf

Link to sponsor ...

Date: 031919 (1) ... I am really surprised more people have not signed up                                       

I am actually quite shocked that more people have not signed up for the playground class that will be held up there on 4-4-19.  There are very few Nationally certified inspectors who can help you in the Reno area and this inspector, vs. an attorney and manager, has put together a class to help you see what you are missing and what he sees. 

 

It is at the Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors on 4-4-19 at 9:00 a.m. and I am flying up to see what he has to say vs. others as it is very important after the $20 Million dollar law suit in the South. 

 

Please let Lara know if you will be attending.  The information is on the attached flier.  You may not manage communities with playgrounds, but you never know when that will change.

For those of you who have not heard, a new class that will be taught by your Nationally certified Playground inspector up there is on 4-4-19 at the Reno Sparks Association of Realtors. It is the first time that it will be taught.  I am flying up as it is important for me to hear what he sees as problems continually and what you need to do.  This is a NACM class so if you are a member, it is free. For all others, see the flier.  Lara Garrell and I are taking reservations so please let us know ASAP so that copies can be made and if for some reason, please let us know.

 

I just taught a class here in Las Vegas sponsored by the Southern Nevada water District who provided copies and food.  More than ½ of the managers signed up didn’t show and I had previously had to turn people away as the class was full. UGH!!! Please don’t do that to us.  

 

The flier is attached and it is on the first floor, room A (not the 2nd floor as shown).   Hope to see you all there.

 

Board members are welcome, but will be put on standby should we fill up with managers first.  If you have board members with playgrounds, it was the board who caused the $20 million dollar lawsuit in LV not the manager.  Have them come.

For those of you (managers) wondering if you should attend a Commission meeting, the Commission wants you there and you will get credit if you stay for at least one hour and you can get up to 6 hours of credits.  The hearing portions about violations of the laws will give you legal credits.  I have forwarded a message I got from the Education person at the NRED telling me what to let you know when you ask and I decided to pro-actively send it out.   See below. I know that I did add red to the law section as well. 

 

I have attached the notice again should you be reconsidering going.

 February 2019 

Date: 022019 ... Two Important Notices                                                                                                     

I apologize, but the  really good class this Friday, “Got Volunteers” will be at 9:00 a.m.  not 1:00 as in my prior message.

 

The other thing is that the Southern Nevada Water District class on 3-14-19 is almost full.  If you wish to attend, please sign up now to fill up the 10 spots.  The good news is, however, is that if you can’t make that date, they have set another class for 5-24-19 at 1:00 p.m.   Please try to get your directors to one of these so that they understand the problems we are creating, unknowingly, in our water problems.   I have attached the two notices for these so that you

Can get more information on the locations, etc.

 December 2018 

Date: 122118 ... NRED forms and the need to have them filled out properly & More                   

 

"Meghan at the NRED said they are going to be tagging Managers through the compliance division if NRED forms are not filled out properly and completely. This even includes missing phone numbers!"  She wanted  to get the word out. 

Note from Sara

 

Please remember that they can hold you as the manager  responsible for anything, unfortunately, and you want to make sure the forms are complete as apparently they are getting tired of spending the time and postage to send them back. 

 *******************************************************************************************************************

Please remember also that you need to keep those CYA letters.  It is critical that you show that you didn't "allow" anything without a CYA letter as managers have been fined for allowing their boards to do things that are inappropriate or against the law.  The letter can really help you get dismissed from a lawsuit. 

***************************************************************************************************************

If you are a member of NACM, please mark these dates on your calendar for their 2019 free classes for members.  A blast should be going out soon with more information, but I wanted you to have them on your calendar for the free classes, if you are a member.  They are all at the Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors and start at 9:00.  Nonmembers can come, but there will be a fee, which will be shown on the fliers that come out before the classes.  Membership is really cheap as it is $60 or $75 depending on when you join.  I have attached an application.

Date: 121618 ... Important message about 1-9-19 Aquatic Class                                                         

I am so sorry, but I got a message from the Southern Nevada Health District that the class we had scheduled with them for 1-9-19 had to be canceled and rescheduled for 1-30-19 at 9:00 a.m.  I had 70 people signed up with me.  Pass this on as some people may not be on my blasts and don't save each e-mail reservation.    This is regarding the new regulation for pools that goes into affect on 7-1-2019.

 

Those of you who signed up, I will move your reservation over to the new date, but let me know if this takes you off the list of attendees, please, as I am forcing them to make copies of the presentation and I don't want them to be left with dozens of copies.

 

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I apologize, but out of my control.

Please find notice of another CE class in December.  There are not a lot of classes during December so if you are looking, this is your opportunity.  It is attached.

__________________________________________________________________________________

You will be happy to know that the board member declarations on form 602 now just need to be kept in a file so that if asked for them, you can present them to the NRED.  Here is the link to the change and note in red at the bottom what it says.   If you are taking over a new account in the future, these are files that you specifically want to ask where they are or make sure you have covered yourself that you didn't get them, etc. I can see major problems if asked for these and you don't have them. They must have decided they didn't have room to store these.

http://red.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/rednvgov/Content/Forms/602.pdf

 

Form 623 has changed as well and we are expecting a change to 609 some time soon.  Here is the link to Form 623. This requires filing should ANY change be made in management, board members, etc.

http://red.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/rednvgov/Content/Forms/623.pdf

 

Form 562 changed as well. Annual registration.

Date: 111318 ... If You are Attending the NACM class on the 16th in RNO                                       

Many of you don't know when I will be attending classes, etc., but I will be at the class on the 16th as I really support NACM and I am a member.  We have 57 signed up so far for the free lunch and learn.

 

Just a reminder that if you will be there, I am still collecting the aluminum can tabs for RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE and they really do appreciate the donations we have been making for them.    Here is a picture that you can print, cut out and put on a container to help you to remember to save them. I have also attached it if you want to make it bigger.  I will be happy to bring back any that you have by the class time.  Link to image

 

Also, please remember to let me know by Thursday if you can't make the class as I personally a paying for the food and don't want to have to order more than we need.

 

Because this has become a serious problem both in the North and South costing me and other providers money and valuable time, very soon, people who sign up for events and fail to show will be billed.  

You also may want to mark your calendars for the 10th of January for the BANN Business Communication Class.  The Ombudsman's Office asked us to teach the class for them this moth and it is schedule up there.   We had so many signed up for that class that we had to hold an overflow class and it was full too.  Popular 1 hour class that starts at 8:30 a.m.   BANN will be sending out a notice, but wanted you to mark off your calendars as it is a really good class.

Date: 111218 (part 1) ... Form Changes with the NRED                                                                            

Just a reminder for the free 1 hour luncheon class at the Reno Sparks Assn of Realtors on 11-16-18 at Noon.  The class is being taught by John Leach and I have attached the flier for your use in making reservations.  As we will be ordering food, please let us know if you can't be there at least 24 hours in advance as we hate to waste food and paper for the handouts.

 

Please note that form 562 to register changes on the board of directors was updated on 10/31/18. If you have saved them on your computer to re use, please make sure you update your files. Here is the link:

Please also note, that form 602 is supposed to be changed as well so don't just automatically use saved forms.

Date: 111218 (part 2) ... SN Health District and NRED Forms                                                                 

For those of you who missed the class on the new pool regulations that go into place on 7-1-2019, they have scheduled another class.  It is on 1-9-19 from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.  at their facility.  I have attached the notice that went into the NRED for the information (address) , but since I begged them to do it because of the very scared managers that left the last meeting as far as inspections of the pools water, etc. PLEASE come to get the two hours of credits if possible so it is not a waste of their time. Link to Calendar.

 

Please remember to check the NRED forms each time you fill them out as they change regularly.  The annual registration form changed on 10-31-18 and I understand that another important form may be changing soon, 602.   If I see it change, I will blast it, but please check before you have directors complete this form.

Date: 110218 ... Recording Executive Sessions ???                                                                                   

I facilitated a meetings and elections class this week and thought you might want to know one fact that came up with a manager and wanted to share with all of you.

 

An owner contacted management and stated that they would be recording the executive session hearing that would be conducted for his violation. The manager contacted me and here is the response I got from Michael Schulman, Esq.  Tuck it away in the event you need it.

 

"NRS 116.31083, Subsection 8 states the executive session must not be recorded. I think that applies even to the owner asking for his hearing to be recorded. His remedy is to ask for his hearing to be held in open session where it could be recorded."

 

We also discussed the responsibility to decide to use acclimation before the nomination forms go out and why not create a rule that stands in place until a future board can change it.  It eliminates errors on your part by forgetting to put it on a board agenda before the elections.  I thought you would want it too.  See attached.  It is also up on the website. www.hoasupport.com  Greg Kerr, Esq. was kind enough to share.
