Help has arrived for Boards trying to go it alone!
Life preserver Increase efficiency, transparency and owner satisfaction while decreasing liability, time and Board burnout. 

At Association Advocates Inc. (AAI), we understand the many frustrations experienced by volunteer Boards.  Most are thrown in the water and expected to sink or swim!  It is a daunting task to have to instantly become an accountant, handyman, attorney and decision maker without proper training. 

Boards need guidance to stay in compliance with the  ever changing Illinois Condominium Property Act (ICPA), but smaller associations often find that professional management may be cost prohibitive.  Now you have an alternative with access to the services you deserve at the prices you can afford.

Association Allies... Partners for simplified self-management is an extension of our training services and is designed to help Boards understand their unique needs and assemble the trusted team to meet them. 
  AAI small B&W logo
We pre-qualify responsive, experienced and reliable strategic partners in the crucial areas of maintenance, financial, insurance and legal services. Special discounted pricing and/or free initial consultations are negotiated on behalf of our AAI clients.

Then we help you work with those Partners, so you can expect an increased level of service, transparency and efficiency benefiting all owners and decreased time required by the Board. 

Learn more about Association Allies below.  Give us a call to see how we can throw a lifeline to help your Association get out of turbulent waters.
