Understanding Your Governing Documents – An In-depth Exploration
Wed., October 24, 5:45pm-8:00pm

Register Here!

Purpose: This is a hands-on workshop designed to engage you in understanding your association’s unique governing documents. We will take an in-depth look at the purpose and structure of each and find out where to look for specific items. Bring your CCRs, Bylaws, Resolutions, and any other documents for this interactive exploration. If you’ve wondered about any of the questions below, then this Extended Learning Lab is for you!

  • How do I use the governing docs as a reference, and what is where?
  • How do I answer homeowner questions using the governing docs?
  • What happens when docs disagree with each other?
  • What is the document hierarchy, and when does law supersede the documents?
  • What do we do if we have not been in compliance with our governing docs previously?
  • How can we make the docs easier to use?
  • What do my association’s docs say about Board Member rules, voting rules, lease restrictions, architectural guidelines, quorum requirements, and amending docs?

Location: Henderson Properties Corporate Office (subject to change)
