I want to pass along a kudo to our attorney Jamie Handrick for the board training session. I have been through a few of these and can say, without reservation, that her presentation was among the best. The materials were not overwhelming and the two hour session focused on the issues that were the most important and relevant to this board. Jamie presented the material in an open Q&A style and sprinkled it with sense of humor. She was able to personalize many issues to our specific board and situations that we are in the midst of. Frankly this material can be pretty boring but this was a fun, interactive and very relevant session. It was certainly worth two hours of investment on my part! One result of our interaction was implementation of some minor course corrections, such as insuring that our Open Sessions are intended for members only. And she helped us, I hope, gain more discipline in our email communications. We should be thankful for professional, personable representation that we have in this firm and with our representative. I have been on a dozen boards over the years and beyond my comments on the training session, can also add that the firm and our assigned counsel are among the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with. -Doug Maas, Mountain Shadows RV Resort HOA
