For over a decade, AZCMS has been providing educational programs known as "Dinner & Dialogues". These programs are made available for the benefit of our board member clients. They have become a popular venue, not only to receive education from industry professionals but for board members to exchange stories and information with each other. Our guest list consists of board members from a variety of homeowner associations; differing in size and having diverse demographics. With our communities being located Valley-wide, it is always interesting to hear about different codes or restrictions from other municipalities and how they worked or didn’t work, in a community.
The Dinner & Dialogue program has developed over the years, with much of its growth being the result of board member participation. In addition, the AZCMS staff has become very proficient in entertaining our clients. We enjoy seeing our repeat attendees; it’s a telltale they enjoyed their previous events at our office. We welcome them back every time. Our Training Room comfortably accommodates 35 people and is equipped with presentation technology. We commonly serve light dinners and beverages. We invite professionals to speak on industry topics. These include federal and state law updates from HOA attorneys, reserve study professionals, insurance brokers and CPA’s. These seminars have proven to infuse confidence in board members as they conduct their general and executive meetings.
I would like to share a few testimonies we have received following one of our events:
“Thank you so much for the interesting lecture last evening by Paul Hansen. We learned some new facts about fraud appreciate all that you did to prepare and present the lecture! Best wishes, Susan P.”
“Thank you all so much! Last evening was most informative. It is obvious that you put a lot of time and effort into these events, as a team, and it is greatly appreciated by your clients. Have a great rest of the week! Susan R.”
“Last night’s presentation was, perhaps, the best one that I have attended over the last several years, whether provided by AZCMS or others. Right on target for new and seasoned board members. I also appreciate the friendly hospitality and professionalism provided by you and others at AZCMS. I look forward to attending the next two presentations. Lorraine M.”
If you have not attended one of our Dinner & Dialogues, we would encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities. They are a wealth of information that will help you in your elected role to serve your community to best of your ability. The 2019 Dinner & Dialogue calendar will be published in the next AZCMS Press. Feel free to contact us at Support@azcms.com if you have any speaker requests.
