On site property manager retiredJul 06, 2018

Our own site property manager retired without property management company posting a official notice. A shareholder posted a farewell notice alerting us about a party. Should the board and management been the ones to give official notice? Why did they wait until the last minute to make a decision about a replacement? Can a 490 unit cooperative operate with a off site property manager so we can sell the office or rent it out for revenue?

On site property manager retired - peoples choice #1 Jul 07, 2018

Maybe those questions you should answer or address to the board & management. Sounds like the property manager had enough dealings with the board and managing agent. The shareholder that posted about a farewell party didn't want the board or managing agent involved or meddling in the festivities. Why? You need to address the way the board and management is run, because the shareholders didn't want you guys to be making this decision.
It's up to the board to address replacing the property manager, 490 units sounds like you need an on site managing agent. Good luck in finding the right property manager.

Board Membership - Unosay Jul 15, 2018

As a board member what information are members entitled to such as master shareholders list, parking list, contracts, hiring of new employees, and communication to our membership? For years our cooperative has been ran like a secret society without transparency. We want to change this image to include all board members in decisions being made for the best interest of the corporation. Loyalty was to former employees who joined the board with their own interests at heart who have resigned without explanation after many years of service. We want to restructure as a well oiled machine with transparency and accountability to our shareholders. Who can we turn to with guidance to make this happen as too much is unknown? Our lawyer doesn't offer advice until there is a need.
