Condominiums attract individuals from all walks of life. Whether you live in a low-rise, mid-rise, or high-rise condo, creating a sense of community can be challenging. A lack of interaction can be an isolating experience for some but the arrangement of a social committee can help. A committee is typically composed of 5-6 members from the association who work together to organize social events and represent the voice of all residents who live in the condo. Social events are not only designed for residents to have fun and meet their neighbours, but they also provide a financial benefit. Potential buyers are more inclined to be drawn to an active and lively condo community.
4 Tips for a Successful Social Committee
A successful social committee is one that adds value to their condo’s community, rather than becoming a burden to the association. Here are a few qualities and characteristics your condo committee should have:
- Set Goals: Create a clear mission statement, set realistic goals, and ensure that everyone on the committee agrees with the proposal and is committed to fulfilling the goals as outlined. A good committee is also highly organized, independently conducts research, and can approach their goals with a strong analytical eye.
- Members: The board and management are responsible for electing qualified candidates to the social committee. Strong leadership skills are a highly regarded characteristic for potential members. A successful committee will appoint a chairperson and feature no more than 5 other members. If the committee cannot come together on a goal, it is important to move onto the next task at hand. Finally, make sure at least one committee member takes minutes at every meeting.
- Structure: Everyone must follow strict rules and regulations in order to accomplish tasks and meet long-term goals. Meetings should be conducted in a business-like manner, and concluded with a formal written report. The report should include a timeline and deadline for project completion, current progress, and next steps.
- Communication: Good communication is not only important within the committee but it is important that members know how to communicate with the rest of the condo association. Keep residents up-to-date on meetings, plans, and intentions moving forward. Provide clear facts and explanations that are easy to understand.
