Association Reserves New eBook & online tool help HOAs safely tap their Reserve Fund in times of financial shortfall

Association Reserves New eBook & online tool help HOAs safely tap their Reserve Fund in times of financial shortfall

To survive temporary disruptions to cash flow, planned communities may want to consider their Reserve Fund as a resource.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — As the Coronavirus pandemic drives unemployment to a record high, Association-governed communities are bracing for higher than normal delinquency rates among their homeowners. Volunteer Boards across the country are all asking the same question: “Can we use our Reserve Account to cover an Operating Fund shortfall?” This includes Boards of Condominiums (Condos), Common Interest Developments (CIDs), Cooperatives (Co-ops), Community Associations (CAs), Homeowner Associations (HOAs), Property Owner Associations (POAs), Planned Unit Developments (PUDs), Townhome Associations (Townhouses), and Vacation Ownership Resorts (VORs).  Robert Nordlund, PE, RS, and Founder/CEO of Association Reserves, Inc. advises that relying on Reserves to help manage a temporary cash flow disruption must be done with great care. His eBook & online tool help Boards facing operating fund shortfalls make wise decisions about Reserves.

Boards across the U.S. are all asking the same question: “Can we use our Reserve Account to cover an Operating Fund shortfall?”

Reserves to the Rescue? eBook

Nordlund outlines four steps to take before an association-governed community even considers tapping into Reserves to fund operations:

  1. Assemble Financial Information (i.e., Bank Balances, Delinquencies)

  2. Review/Adjust the Operating Budget

  3. Maximize Communications & Collections

  4. Confer with legal counsel regarding Governing Document or state-level restrictions

If the Board elects to tap Reserves, that decision will come under intense scrutiny. It will be vitally important that a proper process of decision-making be both followed and documented.

uPlanIt gives Boards a way to forecast various “what-if” scenarios related to their most recent Reserve Study, such as:

  • What if we re-prioritized our Reserve expenses?

Retirees Share Secrets to Financial Security | Aging

You don’t necessarily need a lot of money to set up a financially secure retirement. If you’re willing to carefully manage your expenses, you may be able to retire with a modest budget.

RELATED CONTENT

Here’s how to retire well on less money:

  • Know what you want.
  • Start saving early.
  • Don’t chase high-risk investments.
  • Save above-average earnings.
  • Reduce housing costs.
  • Line up utility payments.
  • Get rid of car debt.
  • Move to a less expensive area.
  • Stretch small items.

Know What You Want

Thinking about your interests can help you set aside funds to cover retirement activities. If you’re married, “Take the time to agree on what you want retirement to look like,” says Mike Smith, who retired at age 63 and currently lives in Windermere, Florida. That’s what he did prior to leaving the workforce. “We have traveled the world and will be leaving our family well set,” Smith says.

Start Saving Early

Putting aside funds well before retirement can provide the chance to build wealth through compound interest. “When money is saved and invested, then your money makes more money; then that money makes even more money,” says Marco Sison, who retired in 2015 at age 41 after working in business development for Erickson helicopters. “I funded my first retirement account at age 20.”

Don’t Chase High-Risk Investments

While some financial opportunities may look incredibly promising, diversifying savings and taking a slow and steady approach can lead to higher long-term results. “Don’t look at bitcoin, starting a new business or chasing individual stocks,” Sison says. “I keep my retirement savings in a bond and broad market ETF portfolio.” One rule of thumb to diversify involves subtracting your age from 100. The result can then be the percentage of your portfolio that is invested in stocks. For example, if you

Seattle’s Cornish College of the Arts declares financial emergency

Seattle’s Cornish College of the Arts declares financial emergency

Cornish College of the Arts, a 106-year-old private arts school in downtown Seattle, announced this week it’s undergoing a financial emergency, though the president of the school assured the community it’s not planning to close anytime soon.

The school’s Board of Trustees unanimously voted on Oct. 6 to approve a resolution to declare financial emergency and financial exigency, a move Cornish President Raymond Tymas-Jones called a “necessary next step toward our economic recovery and our transition to a new, more sustainable business model.”

“This is a tough time, but with the fortitude and commitment of an extraordinary faculty and staff, I really believe we can come up with a plan that will allow us to recoup and bounce back, so there is no discussion or planning of closing our doors,” Tymas-Jones, who took over as president about two years ago, said Tuesday morning. “Right now, we are taking the steps necessary. That’s why the declaration was made.”

After Cornish transitioned to a 100% remote learning model in March, its enrollment numbers were hit hard, suffering about a 17% decrease, Tymas-Jones said. Last fall, 591 full-time students were enrolled, compared to 479 students this fall, he said. Ninety-two students took a leave of absence, and Tymas-Jones said he wasn’t sure how many were planning to return in the spring.

“Cornish is a tuition-drive institution, so our operating revenue is basically generated through tuition,” he said. Last month, school leaders adjusted the annual budget by about 8% because the college didn’t hit its target of 520 students this fall, which created an “immediate strain,” Tymas-Jones said.

“We have had some employees take a cut in pay. We did apply cost of living increases for staff and faculty, but we have had to make other adjustments in our budget and absorb other reductions

Italian police arrest woman in Vatican financial scandal

Italian police arrest woman in Vatican financial scandal

A woman who has said she was given hundreds of thousands of euros by a powerful Vatican cardinal to conduct secret intelligence missions for the Holy See in Africa has been arrested by Italy’s financial police.

Cecilia Marogna, 39, was arrested on Tuesday evening in Milan after an international warrant was issued against her by Vatican protectors, according to multiple reports in the Italian press.

The arrest is believed to be the first time the Vatican has ever issued an international arrest warrant through Interpol, and is part of an ongoing criminal investigation into the past financial dealings of officials working inside the Secretariat of State, the Holy See’s central administration office.

Earlier this month Ms Marogna responded to reports that Vatican money had been transferred to a company she controlled in Slovenia by Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu. She told the Italian newspaper Domani that she was employed to establish “a network of high-level diplomatic relations for the Holy See” in Africa.

Details of the payments made to Ms Marogna emerged after Cardinal Becciu, one of the most powerful men in the Vatican who controlled the Secretariat’s finances from 2011 to 2018, was asked to resign by Pope Francis because of allegations against him that the cardinal described as “embezzlement”.

Earlier this year a businessman was charged by the Vatican with various offences including embezzlement in connection with his role in helping a group of Secretariat officials acquire outright a London luxury property development in which Cardinal Becciu had overseen the acquisition of a minority stake in 2014.

Holy See police have conducted several raids on offices and residences inside the Vatican, and several members of staff have been suspended as the investigation continues.

Cardinal Becciu has denied any wrongdoing, has not been charged with any
