The leaning Millennium Tower HOA in San Francisco has secured a cracked window on the 36th floor, thereby avoiding having the building being labeled unsafe by city inspectors. The HOA also paid $150,000 to install city-mandated scaffolding around the sinking building to protect against falling glass.

Great leaders develop their team members by teaching them how to manage emotions, learn from failure and move past fear, writes Lolly Daskal. "They lead by example, knowing that a demonstration of character is the best way to lead others to develop their own high standards and work ethic," she writes.
Colleagues shouldn't hesitate to turn to their teammates if they need more time on a project due to personal reasons, writes Sara Saddington. People who show their vulnerable side "inspire loyalty, foster engagement, and truly activate those around them," she writes.
CAMICB sends prayers to people affected by Hurricane Florence
The thoughts and prayers of the officers, Commissioners and staff of Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) go out to everyone impacted by Hurricane Florence. We offer our sincere condolences to those suffering now and in the aftermath of this devastating event.

Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
The Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) is a
22-year old independent board that sets the standards for community association
managers worldwide. CAMICB (formerly NBC-CAM) administers the Certified Manager
of Community Associations® (CMCA) examination, a rigorous, three-hour test that
measures managers' knowledge of community management best practices. Passing the
CMCA examination and maintaining the standards of the CMCA certification is proof
that a manager is knowledgeable, ethical and professional. CMCA-certified managers
have the skills to safeguard the assets of homeowners' associations, giving
homeowners peace of mind and protecting home values.
The CMCA credential is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying
Agencies (NCCA) which means it complies with NCCA’s stringent international
standards for a professional certification program. NCCA accreditation provides
independent validation that the CMCA program meets or exceeds twenty-one standards
concerning various aspects of the certification program including its purpose,
structure, governance, psychometric foundation, policies and procedures.
Accreditation validates the integrity of the CMCA program and is a mark of quality.
