The last few weeks of 2012 were extremely busy and the beginning of 2013 promises more of the same.

Here is a list of the speaking engagements and seminars that we’ve scheduled for the next few weeks:

  • I’ll be speaking at the monthly meeting of EPROC this Friday morning, January 11 at Emerald Pointe in Zephyrhills.  That meeting starts at 9 a.m.
  • On Monday morning, January 21, we’ll be presenting one of our resident owned community seminars at Old Bridge Village in North Fort Myers for board members and managers of associations in Lee, Collier, and Charlotte Counties.
  • We’ll be offering the same seminar for board members and managers of associations in the Sarasota County area at Oakwood Manor on Friday, February 8.

Our ROC seminars start at 10 a.m. and end between noon and 12:30.  There’s no charge for the refreshments, information, and the opportunity to meet board members from other communities in your "neck of the woods."   Included in our seminar topics is a presentation called "What I learned in 2012" that promises to be both educational and very entertaining.  Of course, we’ll save time for our traditional "open forum" to discuss topics of immediate concern to the seminar attendees.   Please contact Karen Midlam at or Kathy Sawdo at to rsvp for the January 21 or February 8 seminars.

In my next entry, I’ll be posting information about a "must attend" event scheduled for February 20 at the Venice Community Center.

I hope your New Year is off to a great start!
