The 2011 Virginia Leadership Retreat was held this past weekend at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. The Virginia Leadership Retreat is the leading educational and networking forum for community association professionals in Virginia. This was the 3rd annual retreat and it was a great success! The attorneys at Tarley Robinson, PLC participated in many events at the Retreat. From teaching to sponsoring to working at the VLR, our attorneys devoted dozens of hours to this event.
Susan Tarley serves as a member of the Virginia Leadership Retreat Committee. The Committee is comprised of members of the Washington Metro, Central Virginia and Southeastern Virginia Chapters of the Community Associations Institute. Susan is a representative of the Central Virginia Chapter, serving on the Board of Directors as well as the Virginia Legislative Action Committee.
Both John Tarley and Susan Tarley presented educational sessions that provided community association managers with their annual continuing education credits. Susan’s topic was Protecting Confidentiality: The Attorney Client Privilege. The importance and purpose of the privilege for homeowner and condominium associations was discussed along with best practice tips to protect the privilege. We have blogged many times on this important topic.
John’s area of expertise in social media provided the backdrop for his presentation on how to use social media, including Facebook, Twitter and blogging to help move management companies to the forefront in the industry. John provided a roadmap on how to implement social media into a business, and related the benefits that gained as a leading professional in the field.
The keynote speaker was one of Williamsburg’s own Deborah Reeser McKinnon who presented an inspiring session on leadership.
John, Susan and Philip Chapman, also attended the educational forums and retreat events. The event includes many industry professionals. We find that sharing information and socializing with colleagues is a tremendous learning experience, helping us provide even better service for our clients. Pictures will follow!
