Harry and Irma have passed, 9/11 has been remembered and in many ways we are witnessing the best of humanity!! Neighbors helping neighbors, citizens showing respect for first responders, and yes, even homeowners reaching out to board members offering support and a helping hand. There are always those “bad apples” who use any excuse to take advantage of others misfortunes. Case in point “Nine arrested for looting footlocker in Ft. Lauderdale”. The majority of humanity will rise to the occasion when faced with disaster. Do you recall the passengers on flight 93 from September 11, 2001, whose last words were, “Let’s Roll”!


So as an owner in an association, which category do you fall in? Are you part of the best or a member of the worst? Do you approach your board as part of the solution or are you part of the problem?

Its times like these that are truly define who we are and how others see us.


I wish for each of you a speedy recovery from the storms.
