News

October 2019

We are holding on to whatever sunshine we can get as we move into Autumn. Enjoy every moment of it. It will surely help us through the upcoming months.

“Breaking News” seems to be the language of the day of late and we have some for you.

It seems like only yesterday we held our AGM and yet September 17th is well past. We thank you all for your participation in person or by proxy.

At this meeting there was an election to our Board of Directors and following our first Board of Directors meeting, the Executive was formed. You can find a listing here.

Once again, we extend our most sincere thanks to Dave Leff, who was first elected to the board at the AGM of 2009, for his generosity and support of the chapter and its functions over these past years. He personifies those who are instrumental in the success the chapter continues to generate to strengthen the community-at-large. Thanks so much Dave. We wish you only the best in all your very busy future endeavours.

CCI CONDOMINIUM COURSE – 2-DAYS November 2nd and 16th

While education events by CCI cannot be applied to the new director training legal requirements by the Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO), we are more than confident this 2-day course, and other education events that we organize, will provide you with more in-depth knowledge and equip you with opportunities to ask questions of the experts and have discussions on those topics that are pertinent to your particular condominium communities.

The course description can be found here.

All registrations to the course will require the formal registration form and payment in advance of the course. Please note that the deadline for registration is October 21st, 2019.

A course certificate will be provided to any individual having successfully attended the Course in its entirety.

HOW TO REGISTER/RSVP FOR LOCAL EVENTS

Information on events is posted on the website as soon as we have finalized the topic, description, and presenters for the event. If you are reading this, feel free to share the posted flyers with colleagues who may have an interest in the content. We look forward to seeing you.

For any Seminar, simply email your RSVP to ccisw@cci-sw.on.ca. Include your full name and company/condo plan # and cc your manager where there is one. Your RSVP will assist with setup for the event. Where you find that you are unable to attend a seminar, no fee will be assigned. Where you may have found that you neglected to RSVP to a seminar, do not let that stop you from coming out. You are welcome to come ahead and sign in at the event.

For any Lunch & Learn: as food is involved, your RSVP is absolutely required by the due date noted on the flyer. Your acceptance of the invitation can be forwarded to ccisw@cci-sw.on.ca with a cc to your manager where there is one. Please note however, where a registrant for any Lunch & Learn has not cancelled within 5 days of the event or does not attend the event, no refund or credit will be issued and the cost of the event will be invoiced.

CCI LEGISLATIVE NEWSFLASH

The Legislative Committee of CCI has been producing new Newsflash eblasts related to legislative change in the province. They cover various topics and are NEW to our website. We are confident you will find them informative.

THE CCI REVIEW IS NOW DIGITAL

Increased production/distribution costs of our publications and as suppliers continue a gradual move from traditional print advertising to digital and other direct marketing initiative, the Board is taking steps to provide a digital copy of our CCI Review that you can access online from our website. We will need at least one email address from our condominium corporations so that we can alert you when the publication is posted online. If you did not receive your copy of the first publication of 2019/2020 for any reason, you can find it here.

More on advertising opportunities will come soon.

We would consider it very helpful to know your thoughts on this plan of action, including your preferences. Please share your thoughts in writing to ccisw@cci-sw.on.ca.

YOUR SUGGESTIONS FOR ARTICLES/EVENTS ARE WELCOME

Inspiration from members of our condominium community assist us with developing articles and educational events so we can all understand the complexities of condominiums. Your suggestions are welcome always. You can send them to ccisw@cci-sw.on.ca anytime. We always appreciate hearing from you.
