The year 2020 has been, and likely will forever be, defined by the global pandemic that has impacted all of us in some way over the past nine months. The pandemic has taken (and, as of this writing, continues to take) a severe toll on human life, activity and productivity. There is a light at the end of the tunnel now: as this is being written, three strong vaccine candidates appear near production, and treatment has come a long way since March.
Unfortunately, we are not yet out of the woods, though, and as we look back and forward, we’ve been thinking about the impact that COVID-19 has had on our community association clients this year. How many communities closed (and perhaps have not yet reopened) common amenities, were unable to host meetings or social functions, or had to shut-down or delay planned repairs or other work. In a lot of ways, COVID-19 has brought about changes that we expect will linger beyond the virus: electronic meetings, voting by ballot, increased common area sanitation measures, etc.
In this latest installment of our survey series, we would like to hear from all of you about how COVID-19 has impacted your communities. In the past, we’ve been very impressed with the level of participation in these surveys, and hope that you will once again take the time to provide your input on this session’s important topic. For almost all of this, navigating the challenges associated with the pandemic has felt like sailing in uncharted water, but we’ve all learned lessons from this and we hope that we can use this information to share some of the best practices for how to get through the coming months and how to plan for the future.
Thank you in advance for your participation!
