It had been an incredibly busy 2023 for CCI North Alberta.
Our Board of Directors and staff are hard at work on several fronts, and I am excited to update you on our progress.
Since I last reported to you, we have hosted a few education events, including a webinar on Condos Going Green. We also held a new format for a luncheon on Reserve Fund Studies which was held at our new conference facility, the NAIT Productivity and Innovation Centre. Both events were highly successful thanks to our volunteer speakers and staff as well as our participation.
I am proud to announce that our online module-based Condo Board Basics course launched at the start of 2023. The project was a labour of love for many people over many years. Much thanks go out to our former Executive Director Alan Whyte, consultant Gordon Shepherd with Business Expert Solutions, our education committee co chair Susan Milner, our Education Coordinator Raffaella Loro and the amazing volunteers who helped to create and review content. I encourage every member to take the course online, it is a free benefit for every owner in every condominium corporation that is a member.
The Education Committee has already moved on to our next new project, which is revamping the Condominium Management 100-300 series. We will be offering these courses in 2023 with updated and refreshed content, so stay tuned for when we launch enrolment for these courses.
Our annual Alberta Condominium Expo (ACE) is nearly upon us! If you have not registered yet, do so right away because this conference and trade show will be the best yet and tickets are selling fast. I have personally reached out to speakers and helped curate topics with the condominium community in mind. Contracts, Building Envelope Projects, Reserve Studies, Aging in Place and Mental Health in Condominiums, How to Write Minutes, How to Understand Financials, are just a few of the relevant topics we will address. Nine seminars will be presented along with our always greatly anticipated legal panel, and this year I’ve asked the presenters to add a twist to their presentations! We have also brought back our popular Condominium Owners Stream this year which promises to help new and prospective condominium owners navigate condominium living.
Please encourage your network and fellow board members to attend on April 29, 2023 as we bring the Alberta Condominium Expo back fully in person.
CCI North Alberta has hosted two business partner events recently, including a bowling and pizza night held on March 2. A great time was had by all, even if the President of CCI North Alberta could barely break 100! Many thanks to Off The Ledge and Complete Care Restoration for sponsoring this fun event.
Speaking of fun events, save the date for our annual golf mixer! This event will be held on August 25, 2023 with more event details to come. Every year this event is sold out, so do not miss out.
On behalf of the Executive and Board of CCI North Alberta, I thank you, the members, for your ongoing support and participation in our events and being part of our CCI family.
I look forward to seeing all of you at our upcoming conference on April 29, 2023, and at all our other events over the spring months!
