  Hello everyone,

         We sincerely hope that you and your families are healthy and coping well with our "new normal" as a result of the COVID 19 Pandemic.  We at ACTHA are committed to continuing to provide    information and support to our members during this unusual time in our lives.  Of course, Association business is most likely not your top priority right now, but we hope that you will turn to us with any concerns you are having.  If we cannot provide answers, we will refer you to one of our commercial members who are devoted to serving community associations.  

           In this issue, you will find a link to the webinar we presented last Friday, "Implications of COVID 19 For Associations".  It was our first attempt using a new program and, due to limited staffing availability, there were a few glitches.  Please accept our apologies!  We assure you that we will continue to fine-tune our skills. We plan to continue providing this avenue for interaction with our membership for the foreseeable future.  We have decided to make this webinar available to all in our database, current members as well as lapsed members.  The link is provided in this newsletter. This was a difficult decision for our Board of Directors, but we are committed to our core mission to educate and support. As you may know with the recent turnover of day to day operations of our organization to volunteer Board members, we have had difficulty with our membership software.  Confusing and sometimes conflicting messages sent out last fall negatively impacted us in maintaining our membership rolls this year.  We are a not-for-profit organization.  Please continue to support us so that we may support you.  If you allowed your membership to lapse, go online and renew.  If your contact list, and most importantly, your primary contact (bundle administrator) has changed or includes a manager, management company or any other commercial contact, please correct it by going to, emailing:, or calling 312- 987-1906.

            Please note, if you click on the link to our recent webinar recording, you will see a series of black screens with the names of the moderator, Elizabeth Gearon, and Bill Chatt and Bob Prince, the presenters.  Please go to the bottom of the screen and move the blue dot to 3:32 or later for the video and audio to begin.  Once again, thank you to all who "tuned in" last Friday.

             In this issue, we have included an article on the importance of organizing your space.  We felt that in this time of confinement, dire reporting in the media, and continuing financial and personal stress, a diversion may, if for just a brief moment, provide some relief and a suggestion for a productive use of time. 

Take care,

The ACTHA Board of Directors
