As reported before, SFMC’s Paul Orlando attended CAI’s Large Scale Managers Workshop in Honolulu. We got a chance to catch up with Mr. Orlando to ask him about his experience:
What was the one big “take away” from the Large Scale Managers workshop?
“The workshop was a great opportunity for networking. Professionals from around the country are able to trade ideas and best practices and that’s a great take away from the experience. We were able to visit some large scale communities there and talk about their best practices, too.”
How is managing a large scale community unique?
“It’s unique in that most of the operations are carried out by on-site staff as opposed to a management company. There are also a lot of social and special events because of the size of the communities.”
What is the most challenging part of managing a large scale community?
“The sheer size — the number of homeowners and residents makes it challenging.”
What is the most rewarding part of managing a large scale community?
“You really get to feel like a part of the community because you’re there so often.”
If you have any additional questions for Mr. Orlando about large scale community management, leave them in our “comments” section.
