As President and owner of Jean Bates & Associates I aim to maintain an employee work force that will support each other in a team effort to supply the management and financial services needed by our Association clients. To this end I aim to keep myself educated on the ever changing needs of Associations in the State of California and the technical and service products available to better serve this client base. I must make decisions that will allow our company and the employee team to meet the needs of our clients.


Keep the focus of myself and the management team on the need of the Association to maintain the common property and provide for the safety, health and welfare of the members as stated in the Articles of Incorporation. The management team does include the company as well as the many volunteers from the Association.
