The internal systems and physical components that community associations rely on for residents' safety and wellbeing is a critical concern for association managers, board members, homeowners, and residents.  Following the tragic collapse of Champlain Tower South in Surfside, Florida, how can community associations best prepare to meet the unexpected but necessary financial demands of aging buildings and infrastructure?  In this program attendees will learn how to gather information, recognize serious structural and system failures, plan to reduce the risk, and manage reserve funding for comprehensive and in-depth restoration.
