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.

Taking Charge of Living Large

 

Managing a Large Scale community is a unique challenge that requires specific knowledge and expertise, flexibility and a sense of humor. That’s a lot to ask for in a single manager, but there’s no need to go it alone. At CACM’s first ever Large Scale Summit, active large scale managers – both those with long experience and those new to the specialty - will gather for stimulating discussions with peers and subject matter experts, informative case studies and interactive breakouts based on attendee driven content. It’s a completely new learning experience for large scale managers.

You don’t need to manage 500 units to join us. Large Scale isn’t just about the number of units; it’s about amenities like club houses, tennis courts and golf courses; services provided; and staffing and budgets. You may be a large scale manager and not even realize it!

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.

 

Building Bonds for Better Boards

How you interact with your board is critical for the overall effectiveness of your community, as well as your success as a manager. Ideally you are looking for a relationship that is open and positive. In this interactive session, Jessica Pettitt will guide us through the process of developing a stronger board through relationship building. We’ll explore strategies on improving communications with the board and better understanding and managing board expectations. Jessica also will provide us with techniques to assist in effectively, and productively, deal with the conflict that frequently develops in the board environment.

 

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.

 

Sustainable Strategies for Landscape Management

When it comes to landscaping and amenities, Large Scale communities are not all alike. Even so, there are some common issues – think water management – that affect most California properties. In this session, you’ll gain critical insights on how to develop a long-term landscape strategy that stabilizes your budget while meeting the expectations of your board and homeowners. You’ll have the opportunity to explore the latest in landscape maintenance techniques, irrigation management, landscape design elements and tree care strategies.
