The webinars are based on the Questionnaire about condominium management which was created by the president of the World Council of Managers, Michael von Hauff. This Questionnaire contains the main aspects of condominium management, which are being compared between different countries. We attach the English version of the Questionnaire to this email. The Questionnaire is big enough, so we needed at least 3 webinars to go it through, as the speakers of all participating countries are taking turns in answering the questions.

We also provide you the speech about international aspects of property management which was given by Michael von Hauff: International Aspects of Property Management, Michael von Hauff
