2020… WHAT A YEAR!

By Rafael Aquino

Published December 23, 2020  


The end of the year is a time for reflection.  2020 has been predominantly filled with many events that we will never be able to forget. Associations and members alike dealt with challenges and circumstances that no one could have ever imagined.  As we wrap up the year, it's essential to make sure we don't dwell too much on the challenges but rather focus on the events or individuals that helped guide us through this process.


The motivation for participating in this blog as an educational platform for board members and managers is critical as an exercise of the core values at Affinity Management Services. There is a strong belief in educating board members, and this blog plus our YouTube Page is a significant way that is accomplished. While I know at times, it may not be perfect or precise to your challenges, I'm hopeful that it has provided some assistance. I'm grateful to all of you that take the time out of your day to read our blog post.


Let's take this time to reflect on everything we can thankful for and enjoy the holidays. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and a Happy New Year!!!!
