H. Alan Mooney, President of Criterium Engineers, a Maine-based consulting engineering company with 40 affiliate offices nationwide including an office in Phoenix, has been asked to present the benefits of conducting a Reserve Fund Study to the Arizona property managers of FirstService Residential. 

On April 17, in Phoenix, Mooney will teach a room full of FirstService Residential property managers how the information in a Reserve Study allows an association to counteract the financial woes of property deterioration by having sufficient funds in reserve to make repairs or improvements over time. Topics of discussion will include useful life, maintenance, repair and replacement. Mooney will show how Criterium Engineers proprietary software program can create a reporting tool for association board members to use for asset decision making. 

“Beyond delving into a formal presentation of Reserve Studies and how beneficial they are to associations, I really enjoy opening the room up for Q&A. As the oldest building inspection company in the US, we have literally been there, done that!” Mooney stated. “Sharing stories, listening to real property challenges and offering proven solutions while engaging with the attendees is where Criterium Engineers can really add value and make a difference,” Mooney added. 

Mooney is a long-time, recognized expert in the HOA industry and has published numerous articles on building topics. He is a member of the elite President’s Club of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and often asked to present at CAI national conferences. 

FirstService Residential is a leading professional association management services company with more than 6,500 properties and over 1.5 million residential units across 21 U.S. states. The Arizona office has been ranked the leading Arizona HOA Management Company by Ranking Arizona for the past eight years.
