NEW BOARD MEMBER TRAINING – SCOTTSDALE LOCATION

Each quarter, our office holds a new board member orientation program, and it is held in our Mesa office. Due to several suggestions noted on your board evaluation feedback forms we received, we have “listened” and would like to periodically offer these training sessions in Scottsdale. It is our hope that you take advantage of the more convenient location, and of these training sessions. If the Scottsdale location doesn’t appeal to you this particular time, please stay tuned, as we’ll have our next session in Mesa during the month of April.

I have also tailored specific training topics to associations in the past, by holding private board trainings on-site. If this is of interest to you, please let me know…..we want you to benefit from the education we feel is so critically important to our staff members. The more educated our board members are, the better your community is run as a result.

By the close of 1863 Hundreds of thousands of Americans had already died in the Civil War when Abraham Lincoln made this proclamation of a day of national thanksgiving, drafted by his Secretary of State William H. Seward. We Americans have celebrated it every year since.
______



Washington, D.C.
October 3, 1863

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln

William H. Seward,
Secretary of State

Tri-City Property Management Community Managers take a slice out of hunger, one can at a time.

by Dawn Haskin, CAAM


In December 2009, Carpenter, Hazlewood, Delgado and Wood, one of the leading association law firms in the valley, announced they were expanding their once internal can structure event to benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank to include Management Companies in the valley. Not only is this designed to collect much needed food for families in need, teams are timed and must create some type of structure using the food they have collected.

When I was asked by upper management to be the team leader for this event I had no idea how challenging and time consuming this project would be for our team. Yet, I must share that this was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.

Our vendors, families, friends as well as several Board members and individual homeowners provided donations including food items and grocery gift cards that allowed us to collect enough food items to complete our structure and then some.

The team of Community Managers who participated in this event spent hours of our time either planning the structure’s construction, shopping for the needed food items, or practicing the building of this structure to ensure we could complete it in the allotted time on the day of the food drive.


There were approximately 20 teams participating in this event making it a tremendous success. The day of the food drive the teams collectively filled two of St. Mary’s Food Bank trucks with almost 13,000 pounds of food to go to families in need. The hosts of this event judged the structures and our team was fortunate to be awarded one of only three team awards for “best use of food”, which we have proudly displayed in the lobby of our office.

Thank you again to all who helped in any way, your contribution helped make this event a success. We hope to have the opportunity to participate in the event again this year and every year.
