  1. Thanks for the information. I love the condo I live in but I cannot say as much for the board of directors that run it. They donate very little time other then when it comes to spending our money. They do not look out for the best interests of the unit owners and if your part of their click you might have some say-so of what happens in this building. It is very good to have seminars and you can learn plenty but a condo is only as good as the people who run it and usually your voice is not heard unless your friends of the board of directors that run it....
