Three60 Communities, an Eltizam Company, was extremely proud to be the Platinum Sponsor of MEAMCON 2018. This participation allowed us to share ideas and showcase our company and its services at the event.

MEAMCON is the Middle East region’s key gathering for Community and Association Managers. Last year’s event saw over 300 professional delegates and reputed speakers and experts from all around the world including the USA, Australia, Spain, Italy, Colombia and South Africa.

Conference attendees had the opportunity to hear about global trends in the Community and Association Management Industry from the world’s leading industry association body – Community Associations Institute based in the USA.

Alan Rowlands – GM of Three60 Communities spoke about “Transitioning from a developer OA company to an independent OA company”

He discussed how a developer OA Management company will always find it difficult to gain the trust of unit owners, because in many cases where the developer has faced difficulties in their relationship with the investor, such as delayed handover, snagging issues, design defects, and poor finishing of the apartments, then the owners perception will always be that the developer OA company is also responsible for those issues.

Alan also suggested that the developer should focus on 3 key areas when handing over their properties:

  1. Ensuring that all plans and governance documents are in place so all parties understand the difference between privately owned and common areas establishing a clear understanding with all unit owners.
  2. Making sure that all assets in the building are clearly identified and documented.
  3. Ensuring that an accurate and smooth handover of all common area assets takes place from developer to Owners Association Manager.
