From the Summer 2019 Issue
Message from the President
Leading Our Communities
The ACMO Board of Directors and staff have been extremely busy since the turn of the new year. Our committees are all working diligently to improve our member services and our new website is progressing well and will be launched in the very near future. Stay tuned for the release!
Thank you to all our members who attended the Annual General Meeting in person and via proxy. I am honoured to be elected by my fellow board members as President for my second year. Thank you for your support and trust in me. I promise to fulfill this role to the best of my ability while always focusing on promoting professionalism and a better work-life balance for our managers within the industry. This industry is growing fast and condominium managers are in high demand. It is our goal to provide an association that can assist our members to be successful in their roles and attract a new generation of managers into the field.
We are also pleased to welcome new board members for the 2019-2020 term and look forward to building a solid association together.
As we progress into another period of licence renewal, some managers are required to complete a continuing education program prior to renewing with the CMRAO. July 02, 2019 is almost upon us and we encourage our members to complete this course sooner rather than later. More information can be found on both the ACMO and CMRAO websites.
As previously announced at the Annual General Meeting, Amanda Curtis our Executive Director is looking forward to easing into retirement. We are all aware that we have big shoes to fill to replace Amanda’s role even though she will still be available through B.B. & C and work with us through the transition period.
On behalf of the Board of Directors I would like to thank Amanda for all her expertise, hard work, loyalty and dedication. Her support during my role while serving in executive positions and especially the last sixteen months as President has been beyond my expectations, and I thank Amanda personally for always being professional and, most of all, supportive. She will be greatly missed by all.
We are working with an external consulting company to hire a new Executive Director and are approaching the interview stage. We will keep you informed and up to date as we advance through this process.
We are also heading into our busy vacation time and wish all our staff and members a safe and well-deserved vacation. Be safe and have a most enjoyable summer.
My favourite quote for the month:
“Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failure and loss only act as motivation” — author unkown
We’ll talk again soon . . .
