CM On Demand
Welcome to CM On Demand – a service exclusive to Clayton & McCulloh, the firm that Embraces Community! On this page is a series of webinars that you can view at any time! CM On Demand was created for those individuals who are unable to attend our live seminars/webinars, but still would like to view the event. This page features our current classes available On Demand.
Board Certification Classes
Great News! The great news first. We are so excited to offer brand new Board Certification Classes with all new material (including all the new updates in the law) with dynamic Power Point design. The attorneys will be adding everyday examples to assist you in your duties. These new classes will be available February 1 (or possibly sooner). At some point in the first half of the year, we will also be offering live Board Certification webinars. So, watch our newsletters, website, Linked In page, and/or Face Book page for the dates and times.
Not so Good News! Until that time, we have removed our CM On Demand Board Certification classes only (the elective classes are still available). BUT we wouldn’t leave you hanging without a solution. You have ninety (90) days from your election to the Board of Directors to take the certification class. In the interim, we will provide you an Affidavit opting out of taking the class which will serve as a “temporary pass” until our new classes are available. While we strongly recommend against opting out of the class with the intent of not taking the class, we suggest using it as a “temporary pass” and will notify you when the new classes are available. If you would like this Affidavit to use as a temporary pass and be notified when the classes are available, please select this link.
Elective CM On Demand Classes
The “elective” (i.e., not the required Board Certification classes) classes listed below are now available. Enjoy these unique blends of legal and practical information webinars. Don’t forget to complete a survey at the end to be entered into our monthly drawings for a gift card which will be announced in our CM Updates.
We reserve the right to refuse admittance to any individual(s).

Are You on the Eve of Destruction? Effective and Destructive Posts on Social Media
Social media is a very effective method to keep residents advised of important events and operations of community associations. It can be a blessing and a curse for community associations which can result in bad press for your Association and even possibly, litigation. So how can you maneuver these tricky waters and make social media work for your Association and avoid the pitfalls? Our goal is to help you hit a home run and avoid a blow out for your Association.

Bad Board Members: What ‘Ya Gonna Do When They Come for You?
