Disrupting the Disruptors:  Taking Back Your Board Meetings and Your Life

We all know the type: “the vocal minority,” also known as disruptive owners. If you’ve dealt with them at a meeting, in the neighborhood or on social media, you know how difficult they can be. They are often content to criticize from afar, but they don’t always offer to serve. At board meetings, they may constantly interrupt the flow of the meeting and make negative comments. And now with social media, the criticism never ends. 


Join us for an interactive seminar all about dealing with disruptive owners, featuring real-life scenarios and audience participation. Community association managers and attorneys will share best practices and recommendations on how to deal with disruptive owners, ensure more efficient meetings and address the social media aspect of the vocal minority.
