Opening Session: Cyber Security and Risk Management
Speaker: Bob Travis, CIRMS, CAU, on behalf of the CAI Research Foundation
Ninety two percent of community associations report that they are using some sort of software management programs, according to research conducted by the Foundation for Community Association Research. According to the Foundation’s research reported in the recent publication “Wired: 2018 Survey of Cyber Security in Community Associations,” ransomware and phishing are the most common forms of attack on community associations. More than half of the communities surveyed reported that fraud and theft are their top concerns. In this opening presentation, Bob Travis, CIRMS, will present the findings of the research foundation survey and offer tips on how to protect your association from a cyber attack.
Session Two: How to Conduct an Association Election
Speaker: Bill Owens, CPA, William Owens & Company
One of the most important functions of a community association is the annual election of directors, and one small mistake can cause the loss of faith in the process and cause controversy in your community. This session will cover important election processes including voting, proxies, absentee ballots, counting the ballots and announcing the results in order to preserve the integrity of the election and the confidence of your members.
Closing Session: Pennsylvania Legislative Update
Speaker: Greg Malaska, Esq, Young & Haros
The 2017-2018 legislative session in Pennsylvania was an active one for common interest ownership community legislation. Three new laws were signed by Governor Wolf.
