Date
Thursday, October 29th, November 5th & 12th
7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. (3 one-hour Zoom sessions)

SCOPE AND PURPOSE OF THE SEMINAR

The Utah Condominium & Homeowners Association Seminar is excited to announce its 27th year of HOA management training! Included among the diverse range of topics to be covered this year will be the recently enacted statutes passed by the 2020 Utah Legislature, duties of management committee and board members, amendments to governing documents, the latest court decisions affecting associations, insurance requirements, and the best methods for collecting HOA fees and maximizing cash flow (see below for additional topics). While we typically hold an annual 3-hour in-person seminar, we are unable to do so this year due to Covid-19. Instead, we will be holding the seminar virtually on three consecutive Thursday evenings.

Date and Time

This year's seminar will be held on three successive Thursday evenings, October 29, November 5 and 12, 2020, online only via Zoom. Each seminar will begin at 7:00 p.m. and end at 8:00 p.m. There will be time for questions and answers during the seminar. Insurance issues will be discussed on November 5 and HOA financial matters discussed on November 12.

Registration

You must register at least 1 day in advance of each session (by October 28, Nov. 4 and 11) to be assured you will receive a Zoom invite.
