Board Success Program

July 29, 2022

The pillars of an association are the board of directors. Each board member’s fiduciary duty is to make informed decisions, act in good faith, and be able to work within the scope of their authority.

CC&Rs, What are they?

July 22, 2022

Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) is one governing document that sets out the rules of a homeowner’s or commercial condominium association. It is designed mainly to protect property values within the community. There are various types of association communities commercial, condominium, master-planned, mid/high rise, and single family.

Keeping the Vision

By Isaiah Henry, President and CEO
July 8, 2019

When Seabreeze was started over 30 years ago, it was founded with the idea that business was personal. Clients weren’t just clients—they were family.

Over three decades later, that idea—and those core values—still ring true. It’s what we strive for and what... READ THE POST

 

Lobbying for You

By Marybeth O. Green
March 26, 2019

In 2018, I came to Seabreeze as the Vice President of Training and Development. While that job title is broad by nature, one of the things I am laser-focused on is legislation. Why?

Because we need transparency around these critical issues to fight for the changes we want—and lobby against those we don’t. It’s... READ THE POST
