Contractual Risk Transfer for Communities: It’s Not Just About the Certificate of Insurance


Communities need to outsource work such as landscaping, roofing, paving, pool maintenance & lifeguarding as well as electrical and plumbing. Most simply collect a certificate of insurance from the contractor and work begins. However, effective risk transfer starts not with the certificate of insurance but with the contract itself. This session will examine why communities need to implement good contracts and what essential information should be included to more effectively transfer risk to protect your communities.

Rental Restrictions and Rental Wrangling: Dealing with Rental Issues in Changing Communities

Explore changes in the rental landscape in different types of planned communities, what those changes mean to these communities, and the pros and cons of rental restrictions. No one-size-fits-all for every type of planned community. We will go into the particulars of how restrictions can benefit your community with careful—as opposed to reactionary—restriction. Further, in light of pending proposed legislation to limit or eliminate a community’s ability to adopt new rental restrictions, ways that communities can effectively address the (real or perceived) negative behaviors of renters without resorting to bans or draconian amendments will be covered. Takeaways will include concrete strategies to deal with possible amendments and what to expect from the legislature impacting a community’s ability to restrict leasing and enforcement recommendations.

Registration cost for the Annual Conference varies based on member or non-member, full conference or just Friday sessions, etc. However, EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION ENDS TODAY, July 15.
