 October 2017   

Date: 101117 ...  Las Vegas Hi-Rise Assn Meeting and a really serious warning...... Please read

A Warning that would be as good article for your newsletters.  Unfortunately, 2 weeks ago, I was the unfortunate recipient of what is apparently happening around the valley in parking lots.  There are crooks who are sitting in parking lots and watching for women to enter the post office, the park, and really anywhere without their purse.  They pull up next to your vehicle in a large vehicle that will help to muffle the sound, smash out a window and grab your purse and anything of value that they see in the vehicle.  If you drove there, you have a drivers license and it is most likely sitting in your car.  
 
After this happened to me, I watched 2 women go into the local post office without their purses.  When I asked them if their purses were in their car, they confirmed that they were and I told them what this had happened to me in a park with over 100 people sitting really close to my car.   I was only gone for a minute and normally don't take my purse, but we were going somewhere afterwards and I needed my purse.   This happened to one other person across the same parking lot at the same time and no one heard anything.  Their vehicle covers the glass breaking and it is a quick grab and leave.  The police stated that this is happening more and more in our parks and other places where people will be going for just a quick minute and don't want to take a purse.  Please get the word out to family and friends and clients as this is apparently a new way for them to get money for the  holidays coming up and it is devastating.  They got my keys, my ID, checks, all my credits cards, medical cards, etc.   Two full days to recover and it is still not done as you have to wait for replacement cards, checks, etc.  
*****************************************************************************************************************************
I was asked to send the attached flier to all of you when I send something out again and have done so.  It appears to be a really good breakfast with the police department, which would be a really good time to get some answers to questions you may have had with Metro.  See the attached for more information. They may even have more information on the above issues.

Date: 100417 ...  CAI Northern Nevada Committee Blood Donation

Mike from Incline Property Management sent the below for those of you in Incline.  I hope we all do our best to show that we can make a difference.  During the last legislative session we had such a huge response that it took down their Internet site.  It would be wonderful if we surprised everyone in this effort as well.

There is another drive on October 13th at the Incline Village Rec Center, 8am-4pm, through United Blood Services for those of us in Tahoe.

In Addition .....

Please see the message below from Valerie Hand who is trying to work with Southern Nevada in a time when they really need a good blood supply with all of the injuries in the massacre that happened.     Read her message below, but here are two of the locations up North for you to donate blood.    This is again an opportunity to help the South plus show that our industry is good for something other than just the negative stuff that goes around. As you can see, the Reno location is right by the Peppermill.  Please see her message below and consider helping out.

Sparks

Sparks, NV  89436
(775) 354-2929

Attached is a flyer (flier) from United Blood Services on what they require to take a blood donation.  First Services has graciously set up a drive at their office from 9:30am - 2:00pm on 10/12/17.  Their office is right around the corner from the Peppermill.  Our hope is that class attendees might be able to stop by and give a donation after the Manager’s class or the Northern Nevada Committee meeting, that is right after.  If you could pass on the attached information to all of you people in Reno so that we all have a way to show our support for Vegas it would be appreciated.

 

Sincerely, 

Valerie Hand

Date: 092017 ...  2018 RNO Pre-Licensing Schedule & Important Insurance Notice!!!!!!!

I thought I should let you know ASAP about the change in the pre-licensing schedule in Reno.  Because of so........ many events up there in August, I have moved the CAM pre-licensing classes to July and will only be doing them once a year.  It does cost me a lot of money to do the classes and though I love to do it, working for myself now limits the costs I can absorb.
 
I have attached the new schedule for your use in planning for new managers to get their pre-licensing education and to block off calendars, etc. to maximize attendance and help you all get people licensed.   schedule.pdf
 
***************************************************************************************************************************
 
If any of you missed the Legislative Update up there on the 14th of this month, I can see if CAMEO will do their class (same CE number as on the 14th) up there after the first of the year.  Just let me know if there is an interest as there was a great turnout at the event on the 14th of this month.
 
***************************************************************************************************************************
At an insurance seminar yesterday, I learned something that I felt I should share.  Many of the contractors who you use to service your communities have had their policies change as well as the HOA's.  Please put in the RFP and get updated certificates stating that HOA's work is not excluded.  They are getting so sneaky any more on excluding a LOT.  
 
Here is the language that you expect to see in the comment section of the certificate of insurance.
 
"The policies do not have any coverage exclusions or restrictions for work and or services to a common interest community or multi-family residential structures."

Date: 091517 ...  The Key Realty School classes are going forward & More.

I neglected to let you know that we are up to an acceptable number now and the classes will be moving forward for the Pre-licensing classes. We have almost 30 students now, thank goodness and thank you for getting them signed up.  
 
Remember that there are CE credits buried among the classes at which you can get credits as well.
 
Also, remember the Legislative Update on 10-20-17 for new Legal Credits that have not been taught yet. You register through CAI and the class is at the Gold Coast starting at 9:00 a.m.   I hope to see all of you there since it seems to be the only way I see some of you.  They may have some LAC class before the Legislative Update, but it does not have credits.  The law class starts at 9:00 a.m.

You have all done the North proud, however as the container I have been pushing around is so full I can't close it.   THANK YOU.

Statute Booklets - Pre-licensing classes in Las Vegas & More 

One by one, many of you are asking when my new statute booklets will be out.  As with the last session, the Legislative Counsel Bureau is taking their time and it could almost be the first of the year before they come out. 
 
I am, however, taking orders and the new books, when printed, that will be distributed in the order that I receive the requests.  I have orders for 400 books already.  I don't know the price yet as I don't make a profit on the books, but rather pass on my cost.  They should be about the same.
**************************************************************************************************************************
The next session of pre-licensing classes will start here in LV on 10-1-17 at 5:00 p.m.  I want to make sure we have enough to move forward.  Please sign up your students as soon as possible so that we know they will move forward.  I have attached the class schedule and the CE classes that are buried within those 60 hours of classed.

CAI has asked me to re-notice the two CE law classes that are scheduled as attendance is really low.  Las Vegas is 10-20-17 at 9:00 a.m. at the Gold Coast Hotel Casino.
Here are the links for the North and the South.  For those  homeowners who are DCAL's, this satisfies the continuing education required for the designation as well.

CAI has asked me to re-notice the two CE law classes that are scheduled as attendance is really low - 9-14-17 9:00 a.m. at the Peppermill.
 
Here is the links for the North.  For those  homeowners who are DCAL's, this satisfies the continuing education required for the designation as well.
For board members not involved in CAI's DCAL program, you are not off the hook. NAC 116.405, Section 6 states....
 

 NAC 116.405  Executive board: Determination by Commission of whether members have performed their duties. (NRS 116.3103, 116.615)  In determining whether a member of the executive board has performed his or her duties pursuant to NRS 116.3103, the Commission may consider whether the member of the executive board has:

     1.       6.  Kept informed of laws, regulations and developments relating to common-interest communities;

 
So if a board ever gets in trouble with the NRED, they should be prepared to pull out the certificate of attendance you will receive at this class as proof that you tried.

Ronald McDonald House - Reminder
 
Please remember to save these for me. I will pick them up at any class I am involved with and make sure that they get to Ronald McDonald House. If you print this out and stick it on a cup by your kitchen trash, people will remember to leave them there.  They will to Northern Nevada Chapter only and Rick Gardner is the current President of the Chapter.  Help, please.

Date: 080717 ...  North - CAM Classes

Just a reminder of the pre-licensing classes that will be held starting 8-22-17 in the Sprint building basement conference room.  I have attached the schedule again as a couple of classes switched for a couple of reasons and it may have switched a class you wanted to take for CE credits.  Sorry!  These are always flexible because of the instructors or other pressing reasons.   
 
I will be sending out the pre-licensing student files starting on the 16th so if you have someone not signed up yet, please do so before then so that they are not rushed at the last minute to try to catch up.
