Even we silver-tongued devils make the occasional slip.

Where:  The educational luncheon held by the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario.  

When:  Noonish on Friday, June 10, 2011.

What:  At the podium, the writer (as a member of the Condominium Management Standards Council) announces the most recent condominium management firm to successfully complete the ACMO 2000 re-certification audit and is about to present an accompanying commemorative certificate.

The blunder:  When naming the firm, juxtaposing the words in the recipient firm’s name and adding an unwarranted "Inc." at the end of it (which is heresy in the eyes of the corporate lawyers).

Let me take this opportunity to make things right for the good people at Malvern Condominium Property Management by making this mea culpa and naming their firm correctly, even if belatedly. 

Congratulations to Bill Thompson, John Damaren and the entire Malvern team on being re-certified as an ACMO 2000 condominium property management firm.
