Sentry Savannah Office Hosts Well-Attended HOA Board Member Financial Training Class

Savannah Sentry Financial Training

The Sentry Savannah, GA office recently hosted a well-attended Financial Board Training session for local HOA board members from the Stonebridge, Stonelake, Mosswood and Gates communities.

Sentry Regional Training Manager, Deborah Myers who is a certified CMCA® AMS® PCAM® went through in thorough detail the CommunityPro® reporting tool with the boards and a step by step financial report explanation.

CommunityPro® is an unmatched administrative tool that is extremely useful for both homeowners and HOA board members. This custom-designed industry-leading tool gives Sentry the unique capabilities that enable Community Association Managers your association in the most productive manner possible. It makes us efficient and gives our Managers the ability to focus on the basics of homeowner and condominium association management because many routine tasks are automated.

The CommunityPro® PORTAL tool is for homeowners and the BOARD ROOM for members of the association’s board are standard. The BOARD ROOM tool provides Board members access to all aspects of community financials.

“We Are very proud to be a leader in the industry with state-of-the-art reporting tools for our clients as it relates to their financial health,” Nora Scheer, Divisional Manager, Savannah, GA said.

This the divisions first financial training offered to clients after the office moved to a new, expanded location earlier this year. The class is offered because Sentry realizes that the financial health of communities is critical for the preservation of homes and property values.

“The Boards have a fiduciary obligation to understand and responsibly control the Budget and expenses of the Association. It is our goal to provide them with the means in which to do that effectively, efficiently, and with a clear understanding,” Nora explains.

“This was a well received and needed training and we are beyond grateful to her for her knowledge and mentorship both with staff and our clients,” Nora explains.

Financial classes, board certification classes, and other community association related classes are offered by Sentry throughout the year. These classes often feature industry professionals as guest speakers.
