Association Management Group uses experienced hiring practices when hiring their managers. And they believe so strongly in their experience that they have their managers use independent discretion to satisfy the goals requested by building owners. Association Management Group has also developed advanced software that uses computer based tracking systems to allow managers to keep track of service requests and work orders and store those accounts on the documents they maintain. The Association Management Group has always had an active interest in the community which is why they have been a member of the Community Association Institute which is a national trade organization that represents the interests of condominium, townhome, and single family associations throughout the United States for over twenty years.

Using his education and professional expertise, Association Management Group (AMG) CEO Paul Mengert began teaching others about the community management industry. Founding AMG in 1985, Mengert gained significant vital hands-on leadership experience throughout more than 30 years of running the Greensboro, N.C., based business. Operating in both North Carolina and South Carolina, he managed numerous teams of diverse individuals, leading to prominent business success. This work, coupled with his education -- political science and communications degrees from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro as well as completion of the OPM (Owner/President Management) program with Harvard Business School -- made him an ideal teacher of similar-minded professionals, both new and seasoned within the field.

Mengert served with the Community Associations Institute -- with whom AMG has its accreditation -- as national senior faculty. Specifically with the Carolinas’ Chapter, he served as president of the organization in 1995. Additionally, he has taught classes to various local and regional homeowners’ associations, all of which are approved as continuing education courses by the necessary departments and bureaus.

Most recently, Mengert has taught the Management Development Program for the Harvard Business School Alumni Association in Charlotte, N.C. This program is similar, in many ways, to a Masters of Business Administration program, aiding professionals gain valuable business and management lessons.

There are many different kinds of meetings that a homeowners association or community can call. It is important for both the Board of Directors and the residents to know the differences in the types of meetings that are called. If attendance is extremely important, everyone needs to know. However, if one suggests every meeting is extremely important, then pretty soon no one will be showing up. So, Paul Mengert has learned that it is important to be transparent about the situation and give meetings their proper due. Mengert has, as the President of Association Management Group, seen that meetings play a major role in the governance of these communities.

Annual meetings are usually required by the governing documents and they are generally the main meeting of the year when members are informed about the budget, elect a board, and hear committee reports. In special meetings, residents and the Board can talk about a specific topic. Do we need to enact a no alcohol at the pool policy? Usually the questions are controversial and the members do not participate unless asked to by a Board member, but they retain the right to listen.

Town meetings are usually a more informal type of meeting, intended for two way communication. Board meetings are where most of the business of the association is conducted on an on-going basis and these can occasionally be held in “executive session”, meaning the residents are not allowed to even listen. Association Management Group encourages all communities to be aware of the types of meetings that can be held and to be judicious about when and how to hold meetings.

If, at any point, you become concerned that you might have to deal with a mold issue at your homeowners association. Be sure that you do your research before hiring someone to take care of it. Mold can be a real pain, but it is important that homeowners associations take care of it the right way, the first time. Association Management Group has dealt with this issue time and time again—mold must be treated with respect, but it is important to take the right steps instead of simply hiring the first person who shows up to take care of it. Paul Mengert, President of Association Management Group, has spoken on the issue repeatedly and has seen numerous associations tricked into paying for treatments they simply do not need.
