President's Message

Summer 2023

I hope this message finds each of you in good health and high spirits as we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the condominium industry. As the President of our esteemed chapter, I am delighted to share some exciting updates and important reminders with you in this quarterly newsletter.

Firstly, I would like to highlight the success of the recent National Leaders Forum held in Saskatoon. This gathering of industry experts, thought leaders, and stakeholders provided an invaluable platform for knowledge sharing, collaboration, and the exploration of emerging trends across all of our CCI Chapters. By actively participating in such events, we strengthen our industry knowledge and equip ourselves to overcome the challenges and seize the opportunities that lie ahead.

Advocacy remains a key pillar of our chapter's mission, and I am proud to inform you that we are still actively engaged in advocating for change to licensing and RECA tests for condo managers through our association with the Alberta Condominium Management Education Consortium (ACMEC) and our own direct relations with RECA. Our unwavering commitment to raising professional standards and ensuring the highest level of expertise within our industry continues to drive our efforts in advocating for regulatory improvements. We will keep you informed of any developments and opportunities to support this important cause.

On a more lighthearted note, I am delighted to share that our annual golf tournament was a resounding success! The overwhelming enthusiasm and support from both attendees and sponsors, reflect the vibrant community spirit that defines our chapter. Your participation contributed to a day of camaraderie and friendly networking on the greens and meal afterwards contributing to the success of the event but also helps us continue our valuable work in advancing the condominium industry. Congratulations to the Volunteer Golf Tournament Committee who organized an outstanding tournament.

Looking ahead, we are excited to announce that we are in works of planning a series of new in-person luncheon events starting from September onwards. We will be inviting industry experts and guest speakers who will share their insights on a variety of topics relevant to condominiums. Stay tuned for more details as we finalize the lineup of engaging speakers and topics. As always, please reach out to us if you wish to present on a topic, have a newsletter article to publish, or want to join one of our committees. We’re also already planning the fall Alberta Condominium & Real Estate Conference, for which sponsorships, booth rental, and call for presenters is well underway. Save the date for November 3 and 4, 2023. The 10th Anniversary of the Conference educational sessions, networking and supplier connections are all in one place. Stay tuned in through the website link.

Before taking a break for the summer, we had one final in-person event planned. The Summer Mix and Mingle Social was a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow professionals, share experiences, and foster relationships within our vibrant community and learn how to play bocce ball. It was a good opportunity to expand professional networks, gain valuable insights from your peer and have some fun.

With summer, I would like to take a moment to wish that we do not have a smokey season due to wildfires. It is crucial for all of us to ensure our condominium sites are fire-safe by implementing necessary precautions and adhering to local regulations. Let us remain vigilant and proactive in protecting our communities from potential risks.

In closing, I want to express my sincere appreciation to our dedicated board members, volunteers, and all of you, our esteemed members. Your continued support, engagement, and commitment to our chapter have been instrumental in our success. Together, we will forge ahead, embracing unity, advocacy, and engagement as we shape a brighter future for the condominium community.

Thank you for your ongoing dedication and active participation. I look forward to connecting with you at our upcoming events and witnessing the positive impact we create together.
