The annual Condominium Conference is the place to be for idea exchange and industry discussion. One session, in particular, assessed the very real issue of a shortage of property managers and how this will impact condominiums in the future. Here, in a special to CM magazine, are the assessments of two of that session’s presenters – Tanya Haluk and Brad Wells, RCM.
We’re pleased to launch a new series of occasional articles that highlight some of the funnier moments in the lives of our condominium managers.
ACMO Welcomes New Directors to its Board
Each year ACMO honours the best of the condominium industry with its annual awards. Individuals are nominated by fellow peers, board members, professionals and trades in various award categories. Submissions are reviewed and tabulated by the Awards Selection Committee chaired by Chris Antipas, RCM. Members include John Abedrabbo, Armand Conant, Jim Davidson, Peter Leong and Sally Thompson. Deborah Bechard, RCM, and ACMO director, is chair of Awards.
It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of Denis Olorenshaw earlier this year. Denis was a very familiar face to everyone involved in ACMO during our formative years. His dedication and talents helped develop the CM Magazine and his presence behind the camera at ACMO events helped us mark the time as the Association grew.
