10 Resource Guides
Client: Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (2017–2018)
Project: 10 Resource Guides: Financial Management, New Buildings, Regulations Volume 1, Governance, Building Components Volume 1 and Volume 2, Dealing with Difficult People, Ethics, Contract Management, and Annual Planning
Specialty: Over the course of one full year, we worked closely with the author(s) of each Resource Guide to establish a writing schedule, provide support and feedback during the writing process, and providing close and careful substantive editing feedback to help shape and strengthen the content. Upon completion of the final draft, we copy edited for grammar and spelling; consistency in ACMO usage and style preferences in the use of numbers and capitalization that also followed CP Style for business editing; strengthened heads and subheads; helped authors write key takeaway points and glossary entries. Following the author’s review of the copy edited, we finalized all changes and corrections and prepared clean copies for both a peer review and an internal ACMO review, working with the authors to finalize changes based on any feedback from the reviews. Once the editing was completed, the final draft went to our production editor for layout and design. The greatest challenge of this project was managing the overall writing and production schedule to ensure that the 10 Resource Guides would meet the client’s publishing goals.
