California Association of Community Managers
Here's what a few attendees liked best about the High Rise Summit:


  This was a really great event! I learned a lot and met great people! It was a low pressure environment!
--Meredith Nguyen
CitiScape Property Management


It was amazing to meet others from other areas of the state that deal with similar issues and how we all go about them. I loved the Q&A panel with the attorneys and facilities managers .. even if you didn't ask the question .. there was a good chance you were or are going to be dealing with the same issue.
--Christopher Pettis
Wilshire House Association


I really liked the open format and information
--Barbara Wilkinson
CityFront Terrace


Fun, challenging and a chance to meet in small group

Creating Community Identity: A Facilitated Guide to Defining Your Mission, Vision and Values

Discover a refreshing new way to develop your community and create a legacy for future residents! There is no doubt that establishing mission, vision and values is critical to the success of your community. In this hands-on, interactive workshop, you will roll up your sleeves and both learn and practice the process of defining your community’s mission, vision and values. 

This workshop will focus on developing community by discovering commonalities between neighbors. By organizing and leveraging these values and attributes into a plan, you will be able to create a community vision, mission and strategies to facilitate a well-functioning neighborhood. You'll learn how to bring homeowners together and get them to build a long-term, common direction for the property. You will discover the tools to help community leaders focus on the plan and to advance positive change over the long run. With a plan of this type, you will learn to attract competent board members and volunteers focused on the overall wellbeing of community members.

During the first segment, you will experience two different facilitation methods in action as you are guided through the process of building a community mission statement. Professional development trailblazer and learning strategist Aaron Wolowiec will illuminate the theory and process behind consensus building as you are guided through the process of building a community vision statement. You will be able to put your newfound knowledge and skills to work as you serve as facilitators and guide the group through the process of building a community values statement.

Keynote: Conversations That Matter

Speaker: Jessica Pettitt 

Let’s face it; there are people and topics that at some point are just off limits. Even worse, often it is a difficult topic that you have to bring up with a difficult person. What if you could engage in these conversations with more confidence, humor, and ease? No matter the person or topic, you are your best tool for conversations that matter. Understanding yourself and others as “differently right” gives you the tools to intentionally design teams, groups and partnerships that can bring value to a single project or topic. We are all frustrating to someone, and at times even to ourselves. Once you know who and how you are, you can reclaim responsibility for these behavior response patterns and leave room for others to do the same. Before you know it, you are having better conversations and fuller relationships with those around you.

 

Developing Highly Effective Teams 

We all know how important it is to develop and maintain a sense of teamwork with your staff. Teamwork will create a sense of unity and enthusiasm for achieving common goals and objectives. In this interactive session, we will explore key strategies for building a highly effective team including: 

  • Developing the team
  • Creating a positive work environment
  • Motivating the team to work together to provide the best service possible to both homeowners and fellow team members

 

Avoiding Trial by Fire

CAL FIRE’s code development guru will spark your knowledge on fire prevention and safety, with a close-up exploration of the importance of the fire and life safety systems in high rises:  what they are and why they are important. Division Chief Gary Anderson will review the systems in high rises designed for saving lives including: 

  • An overview of what the systems do
  • Explanation of why they are there
  • Review of laws and codes that regulate the systems
  • Effects on high rises as codes change

 

Five Star Service on a Four Star Budget

Work with your peers to explore the issues that inhibit you from providing top-notch service in your community. You’ll have the opportunity to share your service success stories (and failures) as you work in groups to develop a plan to improve your service capabilities and establish a culture of true service in your community.
