It's a great thing to be able to act as a team and join forces with colleagues to discuss the real day-to-day problems and solutions we encounter. There really is no comparable resource in the industry, and LCAMs with such a resource are going to be at a real competitive advantage.
Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) August 13, 2008
Desired Results Consulting, the Florida-based community association consulting firm, has announced the launch of My Condo Coach, a social network specifically for Licensed Community Association Managers (LCAMs) and the boards of directors of community associations. This forum will be the first of its kind, entering the Community Association Management industry into the dynamic world of social networking.
"The most exciting aspect about the web for businesses is the emergence of social networking," explained Lauren Davis, LCAM, CMCA, AMS and President of Desired Results Consulting. "Social networking services - like Facebook or MySpace - have created powerful new ways to communicate and share information, but no one has yet applied this powerful application to community management. This is groundbreaking and instrumental towards guiding the industry in a positive direction."
My Condo Coach is a network which provides non-legal management support and information to members, including discussion forums, blogs, email and phone support, networking brunches and discounts on workshops conducted by Desired Results Consulting. Interested members also receive a special offer on an eBook - Tricks of the Trade: How to be a Successful LCAM the First Time Around - also written by Lauren Davis.
Davis attributes her desire to create this network as a direct result of her 18 years experience as a Community Association Manager. Said Davis: "In my personal experience, the most difficult challenge starting out in the industry was the lack of guidance, mentorship, and training for dealing with day-to-day assignments. That's what we want to provide through My Condo Coach - support, consulting, collaboration, training, and mentoring for newly licensed and established managers, or for board members simply grasping to figure out how to oversee the management of their association."
Davis continued: "It's a great thing to be able to act as a team and join forces with colleagues to discuss the real day-to-day problems and solutions we encounter. There really is no comparable resource in the industry, and LCAMs with such a resource are going to be at a real competitive advantage."
