Electronic Notice and Voting - What took you so long?
Presented by | Patrick Costello & Douglas Sury - Keay & Costello, PC
Six years after the enactment. Lessons learned from the pandemic and how to incorporate these lessons long term. When Pat Costello drafted the Electronic Voting legislation in 2014 he thought it would take off immediately. It took a pandemic to finally get associations interested.


Reassessing the City of Chicago During a Pandemic
Presented by | Nicholas Jordan and Matthew Panush - Worsek & Vihon, LLP
As if trying to value and assess each and every condo, townhome and homeowner's association throughout the City of Chicago isn't challenging enough, how will the Cook County Assessor account for a devastating health crisis that both strengthened market values in certain areas while devastating values in others? As the county taxing agencies struggle to come to sensible values for 2020, what will be the lingering effects on the market going forward?

True Life Jeopardy: Navigating the Thorniest Condo and HOA insurance Legal Issues
Presented by | David Bloomberg and James Stevens - Chuhak & Tecson, P.C.
This presentation will examine the often time-consuming and mind-bending issues relating to insurance claims based on property damage, D&O claims, and other coverages. The Condo Act provides guidance but the real world application of resolving insurance issues can place even the most experienced Board members and managers in knots trying to determine how the claims process and risk allocation should work.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Homeowner Associations
Presented by | Marshall Dickler and James Slowikowski - Dickler, Kahn, Slowikowski & Zavell, Ltd.
Diversity can be a difficult and sensitive issue to discuss. For community associations specifically, they may look introspectively and ask: How do board members and residents adopt and practice behaviors that address inequity and support inclusion?
