If you are a Board member or a professional who deals with condominiums, stock co-ops, or planned developments—or own property in an HOA—you need to understand the relevant laws and procedures to manage legally and effectively. So many properties are part of an association—and HOA management and legal issues can be very complex. The focus will be on rules, collections, meetings and voting, maintenance and repairs, and Board obligations to run an association effectively and in compliance. Adding this knowledge to your repertoire will make you a valuable asset! *$15 material fee, due at registration, for up-to-date reference guide containing statutes and other laws effecting HOAs, along with useful forms.

Most of us will move to a smaller space at some point; be proactive instead of reactive so you don't end up making rush (and often rash) decisions. Even if you stay in your home forever, you can make it safer and easier to maintain. Find out about the 4 downsizing categories and action steps. Learn what qualifies as VIPs (Very Important Papers) and how to best organize them for yourself and those you love.

Beautiful, long-lasting succulent centerpieces provide style and color with minimal care. They’re inexpensive and easy to make from cuttings—and as they grow, they can be divided to create additional arrangements for your office, home, or patio. They also make great gifts that keep on giving!  The variety of shapes, colors and textures makes for unusual and interesting arrangements, and require minimal water. In this hands-on class, you’ll design your own living arrangement to take home and enjoy. Your instructor will provide potting soil and the succulents, you just bring the container 10" x 10" or smaller, preferably with drainage holes (ceramic pot, teacup, unusual bowls, be creative!). $5 material fee due at registration.

Remodeling can be the most cost-effective way to create your dream home. However, reality TV shows don’t paint an accurate picture of the remodeling process. Successful remodeling starts with a clear vision that’s not about the trends, but about how you function in your home. So, before exploring design with an architect, let Construction Manager Monica D. Higgins guide you through a process that will control your costs, reduce your stress, and allow you to do better things with your time than babysit the contractor. Homeowners who’ve gone through this process with Monica have saved up to 30% in design fees and up to 50% in construction costs – so you can see that this class is an incredible value that will more than pay for itself.   You’ll have access to easy-to-follow video lessons, at your fingertips, on demand with no scheduled class times, from your smart phone, tablet or desktop, anytime you want for as long as you want.   Once you’ve completed this 9-lesson course, you will schedule a half-hour consultation with Monica to guide you through your next steps. Satisfaction Guarantee! Complete the course within 30 days of the course start date. If you don’t feel Monica has delivered on her promise within 30 days, we’ll happily refund 100% of your money for the course.    Monica requires your completed exercise files from this class before we process your refund. Why? Because she knows that when you take action and complete the course work, you’ll get results. It’s that simple.   If you do the work and don’t get the value, then we don’t deserve your money for the course. Just submit your completed homework to Monica within 30 days of the course start date, and we’ll happily refund you.
