Costa del Sol Community Presidents’ Forum

Calling all Community Presidents; Urbytus are organizing the first forum for community Presidents and committee members on the Costa del Sol and you are all invited to take part.

This informative event will take place at the Don Carlos Hotel Marbella on 30th May from 16.30, providing you with an informative session and an opportunity to mix with other presidents.

It will deal with the important issues of;
• Community Debts – including information about the banks and both foreign and Spanish nationals
• The Data Protection Act – including information about what data is protected and how this effects the posting of debtor’s names
• Video Surveillance and Web & Technology for Communities – including wireless, web and TV

Through our extensive dealings with Community Presidents and assisting them to deal more effectively with their various issues through our community websites, we have seen these problems coming up time and time again. To help we decided to bring together experts from different sectors to explain their difficulties, ask questions and share solutions which have worked for their urbanization.

This event is being held in collaboration with legal experts Martinez Echevarria who will also speak on the subject of community debts and how community presidents can deal with this problem, which unfortunately is becoming more prevalent.

Following that issues about the Ley Organica de Protección de Datos (the Spanish Data Protection Act) will be discussed. This is a regulation which was brought in back in 1999, but with high profile cases of communities being penalised with hefty fines for publishing private data in the public domain or areas, communities now need to understand what the implications are and how to avoid it.  Finally we will be closing the event with technology; from Satellite switch over to IP and web taking over the traditional paper. We will discuss the plethora of technology available to assist communities in the digital age.

We will be serving cheese & wine at the end of the talks and giving everyone the opportunity to mix, and exchange ideas.

We welcome all presidents and committee members to join the discussion! Registration is free of charge, so register for the community president forum on our website today. If you are a service provider to communities and would like to join, please contact
