CCI Review - 2020/2021 - #4

Chapter Communiqué By: Trish Kaplan, CCI (Hons)

Earlier sunrises, blooming spring flowers, flowering pear trees and magnolias, more brilliant shades of grass growth, and sprouting perennials in our gardens all signal the coming of Spring. Landscape crews have been hard at work over the past month or so, assessing winter damage to the landscape and cleaning up after those long months to get the properties ready to enjoy in the later stages of spring and summer. Let every sign of spring lift your spirits, energize you and uplift us during these still challenging times. They aren ’ t specific to condominiums; however, I came across these spring quotes, certainly appropriate for the time. It is hoped we all look to the magic that spring can be and more importantly, embrace the wonders even during these precarious period. Spring adds to life and new joy to all that is. ” (Jessica Harrelson) “ Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower. ” (John Harrigan) Take Heart “ Am I going crazy? ” is a popular question of late. According to Gerald Goodman, PhD, an emeritus professor of psychology at UCLA, “ Believing that you are going crazy is a good clue that you are sane ” (that eases my mind). Days revolve much like a rolodex (some of you may remember those), almost too fast to keep up. We all have much on our plates, doing the best we can to juggle them all and keep healthy. None of us are exempt. The importance of being kind to yourself, as well as to others, has never been more necessary. “ No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. “ (Aesop) Annual Membership Renewals We are in the process of sending out our Annual Membership renewals. Everyone is very busy and so we have strived to make the process as simple as possible by completing the forms with the information we have on file; therefore, requiring an edit on your part to be returned to the Administrator. You can let me know via a simple email that no edits are required. We very much appreciate your continued support. For Condominium Corporation Members Whether the corporation is managed by the board or by a manager and/or management company, we value the time you provide to update our records so that you can benefit from all that we provide to our members. Where the corporation is managed by the board, the contact person on file receives the membership package, including an invoice, the completed form to edit, and the current listing on record of the Board of Directors which will need to be updated. Where the corporation is managed by a manager and/or management company, the package will be forwarded to them for processing on behalf of the corporation. For Individual, Professional and Business Partner Members The membership package sent to our current Professional and Business Partner members included an invoice and a completed form with information on file to edit and return so that we may provide the membership with proper contact information in our Professional Service and Trades Directory. Who should recognize the benefits of membership in CCI? Goods and services in the condominium community are much like what you would need in a city. The list can be quite endless. We look forward to your continued support. CCI will continue to provide education
