“We are delighted to be associated with a group that honors and recognizes community Boards of Directors for their stewardship and dedication,” says James W. Hart, President of Sentry Management. “We believe many don’t appreciate the responsibilities of community Board of Directors. Their job is the not-for-profit equivalent of managing a small business. Sentry is fortunate to work with so many truly gifted board members.”
It is no accident that so many of Sentry-managed communities win awards. Sentry Management has expert systems, trained managers and advanced technologies that all us to bring professionalism and real ‘horsepower” to association management.
