Alan Forbes

Alan was first elected as a CCI Manitoba Director at the AGM in the fall of 2019 after serving as a volunteer on the Newsletter Committee for one year. While a Director, Alan has served in various roles, initially as a member of the former Communications & Membership Committee and the Newsletter Committee. Eventually Alan became Chair of the Newsletter Committee, which became the Communications Committee, and he still is the Chair. As well he Chaired the Nominations Committee leading up to the AGM in 2021 and has also Chaired the Advocacy Committee for the past year.

Alan retired in 2014 after over 30 years in the electronics manufacturing
and computer industries, with most of that time spent as a project manager. Besides CCI, Alan volunteers as a warden of Camp 8 of the Seven Wardens which administers and maintains The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer (aka iron ring ceremony), and has been the treasurer of his condo corporation since 2017.

Alan's first condo purchase was in 1985 but it was not a good experience as he got hit with a special assessment within months of moving in. It wasn't until 30 years later that he again owned a condo, moving into Rougeau Gardens with his wife in 2015. In the fall of that year, he attended his first CCI Lunch-n-Learn, then after reviewing his condo's initial reserve fund study released for the 2017 AGM, joined his condo board as treasurer. He has continued his education taking the offered condo courses 101/201/301 in the fall of 2017 and attending additional CCI educational events each year since.

In his spare time, Alan curls at the Pembina Curling Club, enjoys reading (science, current events and murder mysteries) and is a proud Papa of two grandsons (one five years old and the other ten months). He and his wife enjoy family camping & cottaging in the summers and also enjoy the occasional get away for active touring, on foot or on bicycles.

 

Doug Forbes

Doug was introduced to condominium law as an articling student in 1989, and then as a unit owner. Doug subsequently became a member of the Board of Directors of his Condominium’s Corporation, and eventually President.

Doug has been a professional member of the Canadian Condominium Institute (Manitoba Chapter) for over 30 years. He has been on the Board of Directors of the Manitoba Chapter since 1998 and is a Past President of the Manitoba Chapter. Doug is also the Chair of the Manitoba Chapter’s Government Relations Committee.

Doug is also a Past President of CCI (National).

As a partner in the law firm of Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP, Doug acts for condominium corporations, developers, lenders, and individuals in apartment, townhouse, and bare land style condominiums. In addition to his involvement in condominium law, he practices in the area of Real Estate law and in Corporate/ Commercial law.

Doug frequently provides advice and assistance in areas such as drafting, interpreting, and amending declarations and by-laws, disputes between boards and unit owners, collection of common expense arrears, and assisting in governance issues for condominium developments of all styles and sizes. Doug regularly contributes to, or chairs, meetings for condominium corporations.

Doug says he likes condominium law because “it is a nice mixture of commercial and business law with a human element. There is more at stake than money, it involves how people live, and how they live with each other.”
