NEW !!! EDUCATIONAL SEMINARS FOR 2015
The UCOM Board of Directors is determined to offer you the information necessary to successfully deal with Associations by sponsoring a series of educational seminars, geared toward association directors, management companies, and professional members.
At this point there are three events planned; the first in May, a second in July and the third, the Annual UCOM Seminar and Annual General Meeting, on Saturday, October 31, 2015.

Subject: “How the 2015 Amendments to Michigan’s Nonprofit Corporation Act Impact You!”
Date: Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Time: 7:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M.
Location: City of Troy Community Center, 3179 Livernois, Room 303, Troy, MI 48083 Tel: 524-3484

Troy was chosen for several reasons, among which is the relatively central location between the downriver, eastern, western and far northern suburbs. Should you chose to get there earlier in the day, Somerset Collection is just over a mile away. There are also many restaurants in the vicinity for you to chose from that are not located in the Mall.
In July UCOM will host attorneys representing the Law firm of Zelmanski, Danner & Fioritto, P.C. We are in the planning stage at this point – but we are working on securing sponsors that might make it possible to present this seminar in an ultra budget-friendly form for you. Possible topics include: Money and How to Secure It; Funding for Your Projects; and Rental Key Considerations. You’ll find the program details in the next issue of The Reporter.
Check the website for updates as they develop at www.ucomonline.org.

The United Condominium Owners of Michigan (UCOM) is dedicated to the interests of condominium owners in the state of Michigan.
UCOM was founded as a non-profit corporation in 1973 to serve the growing demand for current information, guidance and motivation for those who have adopted the condominium lifestyle.
UCOM, over 36 years after its founding, continues to be the only organization in Michigan devoted to the education and training of condominium leadership - the officers, directors and committee chairpersons who serve their neighbors and co-owners by regular contributions of personal time and study to make their communities wisely and fairly administered, cost efficient, enjoyable - and to maintaining and improving property values.
UCOM provides year-round services to its members on a budget derived from moderate membership dues based on association size (number of units). UCOM by-laws permit and encourage non-voting membership for suppliers and others with professional relationships, including management companies; legal, accounting and insurance firms; developers and realty companies.
UCOM accomplishments benefit condominium owners generally, such as presentation of consumer (owner) views and concerns about the 1978 revision of the Michigan condominium law. With other concerned groups, UCOM aided in getting the Michigan Public Utility Service Commission to modify rate structures of gas utilities - a change which benefited condominium associations and owners.
