Ever wonder if there was a better way to communicate with condominium owners and residents?
Many condominium corporations provide their owners with regular in-house newsletters. The purpose of the newsletter is to provide updates, explain decisions made by Board of Directors, announce upcoming projects, and invite volunteers to participate.
The newsletter doesn’t need to be fancy and can vary in length, depending on the amount of content available. By publishing a regular bi-monthly or quarterly newsletter, you can update condo owners and residents on what’s happening in the condo. If you include regular sections for scheduled maintenance, changes in procedures, upcoming projects, reminders (such as, insurance policy renewals) and volunteer opportunities, this provides a format of consistency. You should also consider an educational article, provided by an experienced condominium industry professional. As members of CCI, your condominium corporation has access to articles written on a variety of topics.
Newsletters can be emailed to each owner, posted on bulletin boards, delivered to owners’ doors, or added to the corporation’s website. A variety of distribution methods increases the likelihood that it will be regularly seen, read and welcomed by everyone.
Your condominium newsletter is an important communication tool for your corporation. It doesn’t have to be compiled by the Board of Directors. Among the owners you probably have a volunteer who can assist in collecting the content. There are also businesses that provide newsletter compilation services or training on how to create and produce your own newsletter.
