From the Fall 2021 Issue
A quick glance at what’s happening with ACMO and the condominium industry.
The ACMOcon Condominium Management Conference
On Friday, June 18, 2021, ACMO held its first ACMOcon Condominium Management Conference. The theme for the conference, “Demonstrating Integrity and Professionalism Every Day: Best Practices for Condominium Managers,” focussed on foundational and professional competencies in the CMRAO framework, specifically interpersonal skills, communication, ethics and professional development.
220 attendees enjoyed a full day of learning through virtual seminars covering topics including Ethical Condominium Management, Avoiding the Conflict-of-Interest Trap, Essential Skills for Successful Communications, Managing Conflict, Effective Time Management, and Lessons Learned from Recent Tribunal Decisions.
There was much excitement with attendees, engaging in the search for codes throughout the virtual platform for the chance to win some great prizes from ACMO, as they networked with over 25 exhibitors in the condominium service industry.
you to all our expert speakers and sponsors for helping to make ACMOcon a successful event!

ACMO Disciplinary Decision
The ACMO Membership Standards Committee met recently to review a disciplinary decision issued by the CMRAO on February 26, 2021 against Elena Schneider for a conflict of interest and failure to comply with the Code of Ethics under the Condominium Management Service Act, 2015.
The committee determined that Ms. Schneider had also violated ACMO’s Code of Professional Ethics and decided that appropriate disciplinary action was the lifetime revocation of her RCM designation and membership effective May 20, 2021. Following an appeal by Ms. Schneider, the committee upheld this decision and ordered that the decision be made public.
When an individual or company becomes a member of ACMO’s professional community, we expect them to demonstrate the highest professional and ethical standards beyond the minimum regulatory requirements. We encourage all members to be familiar with and abide by our Code of Ethics for Professionals, Corporations and Associate members.
On April 1, 2021, ACMO took an important step in its organizational evolution by becoming self-managed. The latest step in this transition was to procure new office space for staff. We are happy to announce the new ACMO office will be located at 2121 Argentia Rd., Suite 101, Mississauga, Ontario L5N 2X4. All phone numbers and emails remain unchanged.
