Principal Management Group of Houston Hosts Board Seminar

Principal Management Group of Houston (PMG Houston), an Associa company, recently hosted a complimentary board orientation seminar featuring Larry J. Pothast, PCAM, presenting to attendees.

Held at the Greater Houston Builders Association, around 80 board members attended the seminar. Pothast covered ‘everything you need to know to successfully serve on the board of an HOA,’ which involved numerous topics, including how to work successfully with volunteers, how to attract new members to the board, and the most effective meeting practices to make a board more efficient and businesslike.

A nationally recognized community association expert, trainer, and author on HOA leadership effectiveness and operations for board members, Pothast currently serves as director of management training for Associa. In addition to receiving his Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation from the Community Associations Institute (CAI), he has been awarded “Speaker of the Year” honors from many CAI chapters for his workshops, seminars and keynote speeches. He has served on the CAI National Research Foundation Board of Directors and is a former Dean of CAI’s Professional Management Development Program Communications and Meetings module. Pothast was featured in the industry’s first video training seminar, “Serving on the Board,” a video guide to successfully serving on the board of a community association. His live workshops and training programs, including the original “One Hour Board Meeting,” have been acclaimed for their presentation of useful tools and practical solutions delivered with humor and insight from more than 30 years in the HOA industry.
