Aegis offers management services that are not only cutting edge but professional and dependable. Nonetheless and notwithstanding the very real liability to which each individual Board member is exposed, self-managed community associations have an intrinsic value that should not be overlooked and can sometimes be the most effective choice.
However, the sheer volume of paperwork and reporting, accounting, regulatory compliance, assessment collection, and the myriad of other day-to-day responsibilities unfairly burden community leaders, obscuring the true objectives of the community. This drain on time and energy robs the Board of not only their personal time but also of their ability to focus on strategic planning and effective governance for their community. Further, the majority of the personal liability that exists for Board members is rooted in the mundane details of community management and not in the functions true leadership.
Aegis has developed a boutique service called Aegis Solutions for those communities that prefer to continue operating as a self managed community, but would like to ease the “heavy-lifting” of managing the community.
