Information Webinars for Volunteer Directors of Owners’ Management Companies - April 21, 28 and May 5
Posted: Mar 03, 2020 Categories: News, Events

Multi-unit developments (MUDs) are developments of several homes that share certain facilities. These managed estates are often apartment buildings or duplexes, but they can also be townhouses or stand-alone houses that share common facilities. These communities rely on robust owners’ management companies (OMCs) for them to be successful and sustainable.

With the increasing number of apartments, MUDs, and OMCs across the country, The Housing Agency is holding information webinars for volunteer directors of OMCs.

The webinars will cover:
