How to Achieve Professionalism in the HOA Management Industry

Sentry Management CAI Presentation

Sentry Management President, Bradley Pomp and Senior Vice President, Kregg Hale recently delivered a keynote speech at the Community Associations Institute (CAI) National Conference. The title of the presentation was “Get Your Head Straight: Achieve Breakthrough Professionalism”.

“In every interaction: kindness, professionalism, and timely resolution” is the company-wide service standard for Sentry Management. Brad and Kregg shared their seven tips on how to achieve that standard, which included:

  1. Get your head straight- view yourself as the professional
  2. Walk the walk- be professional in everything you do or say
  3. Achieve functioning alignment- set expectations with your company and the association board
  4. Be on stage- before, during and after the board meeting
  5. Perpetual communication- set up an established cadence with the board
  6. Do only what you can do- accomplish meaningful, not menial tasks
  7. Encourage optimal operational structure- avoid the bottleneck of information flow

The presentation was held at the annual CAI National Conference in Orlando, Fl and was attended by over 100 community association managers and other community management professionals.
