April 21, 2020

Dallas, TX — April 21, 2020 — Associa, the industry’s largest community management company, recently hosted its third webinar, COVID-19: Considerations for Community Association Boards—Part III, which examined the implications that the current health pandemic has on community associations, board of directors, and community managers.

  • Sandra L. Gottlieb, senior managing partner, SwedelsonGottlieb, California
