On 22nd March 2020, as India observed ‘Janata Curfew’, RWAs from Apartment Societies from across the country came together to meet and discuss – digitally and responsibly, without leaving their home.
ApnaComplex had organized online meeting for Apartment Societies to share their best practices on ‘Securing their Societies from Coronavirus.’ The discussion was led by RWA of Elita Promenade, a prominent Apartment Society in Bangalore with ~1500 units, and a long-time customer of ApnaComplex. Elita Promenade has been exemplary in their actions towards securing their Society and was featured in Times of India because of their innovative steps to fight COVID19.
In the first half of the session, Mr. Tarak Desai (Board Member) & Ms.Maria George (Secretary) of the Elita Promenade RWA explained how they had started their response early on Feb 1st week and talked about the task force they had set up along with volunteer groups from residents. The panelists shared their best practices such as ‘travel self-declaration form‘, sanitization at each gate and block level, installing washing stations, etc. Ms. Maria highlighted the need to quench all rumors circulating inside the Society. She explained how Elita uses Noticeboard on ApnaComplex to keep their residents informed with official news and regular advisories from RWA.
The second half of the meeting saw committee members from various societies talk about the common challenges they are facing in this unprecedented situation and debated the solution each one had adopted. It became evident that meeting is well-received when multiple RWAs requested ApnaComplex to organize more such meetings and provide a common platform for the Societies to come together for learning and sharing their best practices with each other. The event concluded with all participating Societies thanking Elita Promenade RWA and ApnaComplex for organizing the webinar.
