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?

  • What if we temporarily reduced Reserve contributions?

  • What if we borrowed money from Reserves?

Teachers get creative to keep students engaged during online learning

Teachers get creative to keep students engaged during online learning

COLORADO SPRINGS — During this time of online learning, local school districts are raising concerns over student engagement. Some say students are disappearing during class time, not turning in assignments, and have a lack of participation.

“We’re seeing some students not log into their class, maybe not turning in their assignment, forgetting their assignment or they weren’t aware of it,” said Dr. Wendy Birhanzel, superintendent of Harrison School District 2.

Birhanzel says it’s been a struggle to keep their online learners engaged in the classroom. She says it’s important for students to stay engaged to prevent learning gaps and foster growth.

“As research will tell us, their academic achievement will increase, their self-esteem will increase, the likelihood of going to college and getting a job after high school will increase,” said Birhanzel.

Parents should monitor their children online to make sure they’re paying attention and participating in class.

“Children are pretty savvy and sometimes parents think they’re online but they’re playing a game or doing something other than their assignment,” said Birhanzel.

Angelica Marquez with Falcon School District 49 says they’ve also been having problems with student engagement.

“Kids are being left by themselves at home or left in front of the computer by themselves while mom or dad is trying to multitask,” said Marquez.

She recommends parents set expectations for themselves and children.

“Parents go off of expectations for teachers, but I think since they’re being held responsible for what’s going on at home, there needs to be an expectation coming from their point of view as well,” said Marquez.

Both school districts are coming up with creative ways to keep their students engaged.

“We have teachers checking in on them, we are starting some peer groups where they can meet together and socialize,” said Marquez.

How This Pandemic-Proof Online Farmers Market Can Promote Sustainable Farming

How This Pandemic-Proof Online Farmers Market Can Promote Sustainable Farming

One of Americans’ favorite weekend pastimes, shopping at the local farmers market, was among the multitude of activities destroyed by Covid-19. Farmers, of course, were most affected, as many saw considerable revenue losses. But consumers lost something, too. 

We lost knowing where our food comes from,” says Gunnar Dinkla, a precision agronomist at agronomic services company Advanced Agrilytics. “Grocery stores are still an option but the personal connection with farmers got eliminated.”

Dinkla, along with teammates Kennedy Papian, a visual designer at Corteva Agriscience, and Gabriel Popoola, a postdoctoral appointee at Sandia National Laboratories, set out to solve this problem at the Forbes Under 30 Agtech+ Hackathon this past weekend. The group was tasked with discovering how farmers could achieve both sustainability and profitability through regenerative agriculture, which, in turn, could help restore the health of America’s soil.

Thus, Marketplace was born. The team proposed building an online platform to connect sustainable farmers with equally like-minded sustainable consumers. Their website would function first and foremost as an online farmers market, where consumers could search for local produce or meat in their areas and be connected to farmers who are selling their products. Much like in-person markets, farmers would pay a vendor fee for access to Marketplace.

If I’m a consumer and I want strawberries that are organically grown and the farmer uses this certain sustainable practice, I could search that and find that that farmer is 27 miles away,” Dinkla says.

It would also operate as a social networking site, much like LinkedIn, Papian says. Farmers could connect with fellow farmers to share sustainable farming tips and tricks, as well as interact with consumers to answer questions about their products and farming practices. 

“If a farmer has a surplus of tomatoes one week, he could put it

Poland’s newest stock listing was a roaring success on its first day of trading, taking over as the biggest stock on the country’s main exchange and adding almost two-thirds in market value.

Allegro.eu SA shares jumped 63% to close at 70 zloty in its first trading session in Warsaw on Monday, lifting the company’s value to 72 billion zloty ($19 billion). The firm and its private-equity investors priced the IPO at the top end of a marketed range, cashing in on soaring demand for digital sales as consumers stuck at home indulge in virtual retail therapy.

“Allegro provides high exposure to the fast-growing Polish e-commerce market and draws comparison to Amazon, which may be an attractive investment option for foreign investors, who took up most of the shares in offering,” Jaroslaw Niedzielewski, head of investments for Investors TFI mutual fund, said in an email. “But the scale of the price jump is a shock.”

Before the trading start, analysts at Bernstein estimated Allegro’s enterprise value to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization to be about 37, above the likes of Amazon.com Inc and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, but below MercadoLibre Inc. and European fashion retailer Zalando SE, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Trading volume on Allegro shares reached about 4 billion zloty, a record daily volume for single stock in Warsaw. It stood for almost 80% of total equity traded value on the exchange on Monday.

“Wide gains are a combination of a general surge in tech stocks this year and emerging markets e-commerce opportunity, which long-term is a good place to be,” Bernstein analyst Aneesha Sherman said in email. Even so, “such a move may soften after as there are several question marks about growth and margins.”
