2018 Mountain Conference and Trade Show

Whether you live and work in Mountain Communities or in the Denver Metro Area, this conference is sure to make a lasting impression!  We have classes lined up to suit managers and homeowner leaders - take a look below for class descriptions!

Marijuana - Beyond the Haze

Description: Marijuana is legal in Colorado but most community associations have rules and regulations to manage or prohibit its use on the those properties. However, when service providers, vacationers, renters, and owners decide to bring marijuana to the property for use, it can create challenges for the Association and management, whether just smoking, cultivation, or even full on grow operations. Come and help us through the haze.


Aging Communities and How to Finance Necessary Repairs

Description: Many community associations are facing much needed and expensive repairs and maintenance to their aging communities.  When big projects arise due to lack of previous maintenance or due to emergency circumstances, 1) how can you be prepared financially, and 2) if your association isn’t prepared financially, what are the different options for financing a project? 


Going Green - One Association at a Time

Description: In this class community managers learn how Associations can adopt more sustainable practices. Topics include becoming more energy efficient, water conservation, and recycling. Managers will learn about Colorado's Xeriscape Laws, Solar Access Laws, and the Renewable Energy Law. Additionally, we will discuss current tax incentives and utility rebate programs that exist that can save money for Homeowner Associations.


Security Cameras, Is Somebody Watching You?

Description:  With technology becoming more affordable, many associations are turning to the use of security systems to monitor the common areas for damage and illegal dumping.  This class will explore the legal issues surrounding the use of cameras, including the value of having cameras, and the legal exposures related to their use, placement and viewing of camera recordings. 


The Impact of Rentals on Mountain Community Associations

Description: Our mountains are a popular destination for second home owners and weekend trippers alike, so rentals, both long term and short term in the communities, are on the rise. Short-term rentals, using sites like VRBO and AirBNB, are on the extremely popular due to their ease of use and community associations are facing mounting issues while trying to deal with the legal ramifications of allowing or disallowing them in their communities.  This session will discuss how to enforce covenant restrictions (do your governing documents expressly state that you cannot have short term rentals in your community?).  It will also discuss the differences and how to deal with the issue of long-term versus short-term rentals.  What is legal and what is the best way to address these questions in your communities?


Association Insurance- Understanding HOA & Unit Owners’ Coverages and Responsibilities

Description: The learning objective of this class will be to better understand the insurance section of the Declarations.  As well as both unit owner and associations responsibilities and coverages/limits as required by the declarations; To gain insight on the different coverages for associations which may be or shall be required via the Declarations and which ones become necessary because of the fiduciary responsibility of the association, Board of directors and property managers. To also obtain knowledge on what exclusions and enhancements exist on these policies; To learn the different coverages available on unit owners’ policies whether it be a single family home HOA, townhome or condo, or a short term or long term rental; To gain insight on how to minimize the exposures HOAs face on a regular basis.
