About Us

A Network for Managers of Common Interest Developments

Supporting Each Other Through Our Common Experience

Happy Minds Network exists to establish a foundational resource and environment of inspiration and support through positive collaboration.

At the core of Happy Minds Network are proven methods and successful practices that serve as pillars for coping with both personal and professional challenges. By providing a safe space where managers can freely express their concerns and share their experiences, the network ensures that every voice is heard and valued. This collaborative approach not only fosters a sense of belonging but also equips managers with the tools and resources they need to perform at their best professionally.

Being a part of Network is a serious responsibility that needs not to be taken lightly. Therefore, being a part of this Network will require your commitment and attendance at our quarterly meetings.

In essence, Happy Minds Network is more than just a resource—it's a supportive community where CID managers can find strength, inspiration, and camaraderie as they navigate the challenges of their profession. Through shared experiences and collective empowerment, the network empowers managers to thrive personally and professionally, ultimately fostering a brighter and more resilient community management industry.

Dedicated to Christopher

Dear Christopher,

As I sit down to pen this message, my heart weighs heavy with the ache of your absence. It's a bittersweet task to honor the memory of someone who brought so much joy and warmth into our lives, yet left us too soon. You, my dear friend, were a beacon of light in the lives of all fortunate enough to know you.

Your departure has left a void that words can scarcely fill, but it has also ignited a flame within me—a flame fueled by the unconditional love and friendship you so generously shared. In the midst of grief, I found inspiration, and it has blossomed into something beautiful—the Happy Minds Network.

Your spirit, Christopher, lives on through the laughter we shared, the memories we created, and the love that binds us even across the realms of existence. The Happy Minds Network is a testament to the positive impact you had on those around you. It's a tribute to your unwavering belief in the power of happiness and the strength of genuine connections.

Though you may no longer walk beside us, your essence lingers in the joy we find in each other's company. The network we've built is a living testament to the beautiful soul you were—a soul that continues to touch lives and spread happiness.

As we navigate this journey without you physically present, know that you are never truly gone. You reside in the laughter of our shared stories, the warmth of our fondest memories, and the love that fuels the Happy Minds Network. In honoring your legacy, we strive to bring happiness to others, just as you did for us.

Rest in peace, dear Christopher. Your impact on this world is immeasurable, and your spirit is forever etched in the tapestry of our hearts.

With love,
