SEASONAL BOARD EDUCATION FORUMS, BOARD CERTIFICATIONS, DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS & MORE!

Southern States Management Group, (SSMG) launched their education initiative in June 2018 and have been pursuing every opportunity to collaborate with local professionals to educate community association leaders. The underlying goal of this initiative is to provide those leaders with thoughtful insight and practical knowledge to address the challenges that they face throughout the year.

 

We recognize that these community leaders are volunteering their time and efforts and it is in keeping with this spirit that we endeavor to make sure that they are well equipped to face the challenges that may arise.
Recent curriculum has included:

 

  • Ways to secure your communities and maintain business continuity in the face of an impending disaster.

  • How to facilitate and begin an insurance claim to be ahead before you get behind.

  • How to better understand how insurance claims are handled from a legal perspective.

  • Financial & Strategic Planning.
