The 1st Presidents Club Golf Tournament in aid of Cudeca

The Urbytus team and our sponsor EU Property Solutions would like to thank all of the community presidents, administrators & friends who joined us for the 1st Presidents Club Golf Tournament.

The tournament was held at the beautiful Marbella Club Golf Resort in Benahavís on November 10 and was arranged with the help of golf pro Garry Corkish.

This event was held in aid of Cudeca, a local charity which provides end-of-life care for roughly 1000 people in the Málaga region. The hospice concept is not yet formally established in Spain, and Cuduca bridges the gap in care for the terminally ill and their families.

At Urbytus we are proud to extend our reach beyond helping communities get online to support this wonderful charity.

We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast while the mountain dew evaporated and at 9:30 the teams headed out for a round of Texas Scramble. The course is reportedly not the easiest, but the players had fun. The winning team was Andy Fergusson from Estepona with team mates. Congratulations!

After the tournament we enjoyed tapas and drinks while Cudeca representative Nati & Urbytus founder Ali, held a raffle & auction which further increased the proceeds given to Cudeca from this event.

 This is the first time Urbytus has organized a golf event, but watch this space and join us next time for a friendly competition in support of a good cause.  Sign up now to The Presidents Club to receive notification about our next event.

Thank you all, we look forward to seeing you next time!

Protecting Your Trade Mark

The Presidents Club

 It is a thing that often most entrepreneurs forget.  It is not just about protecting your trade mark, but also making sure that you do not use someone else’s.

 Let me begin with my own story as an example.  In 2007 I embarked on a new project. I knew very well how important it was to get the naming right, have it registered and protected.  Before coming up with a product or company name, we setup about doing a six months brain storming session, while working on the project in parallel.

The 1st Presidents Club Golf Tournament on the Costa del Sol.

Urbytus would like to invite its clients and followers to an unforgettable event.  Join us for the first ever Presidents Club Golf Tournament on the 10th of November at one of the  prestigious Marbella Club Golf Resort.

Join us for a fun “Texas scramble” round of Golf.  It will be a shot gun start, just after serving a cooked breakfast, followed by Tapas and drinks afterwards.  We have gone the extra mile and included a buggy. (9:30am start) 

Minimum Interest Rates in your Mortgage Contract!

Millions of families across Spain, including a good number of expats, have contracted mortgages with interest rate floor clauses (“cláusulas suelo”, as they are commonly called in Spain), which prevented them from taking advantage of the very low mortgage interest rates which have occurred due to the decline in the Euribor rates since the financial crisis started in 2008 (The Euribor is currently at 0,32%).

Costa del Sol Community Presidents’ Forum

Calling all Community Presidents; Urbytus are organizing the first forum for community Presidents and committee members on the Costa del Sol and you are all invited to take part.

This informative event will take place at the Don Carlos Hotel Marbella on 30th May from 16.30, providing you with an informative session and an opportunity to mix with other presidents.

It will deal with the important issues of;
• Community Debts – including information about the banks and both foreign and Spanish nationals
• The Data Protection Act – including information about what data is protected and how this effects the posting of debtor’s names
• Video Surveillance and Web & Technology for Communities – including wireless, web and TV

Through our extensive dealings with Community Presidents and assisting them to deal more effectively with their various issues through our community websites, we have seen these problems coming up time and time again. To help we decided to bring together experts from different sectors to explain their difficulties, ask questions and share solutions which have worked for their urbanization.

This event is being held in collaboration with legal experts Martinez Echevarria who will also speak on the subject of community debts and how community presidents can deal with this problem, which unfortunately is becoming more prevalent.

Following that issues about the Ley Organica de Protección de Datos (the Spanish Data Protection Act) will be discussed. This is a regulation which was brought in back in 1999, but with high profile cases of communities being penalised with hefty fines for publishing private data in the public domain or areas, communities now need to understand what the implications are and how to avoid it.  Finally we will be closing the event with technology; from Satellite switch over to IP and web taking over the traditional paper. We will discuss the plethora of technology available to assist communities in the digital age.

We will be serving cheese & wine at the end of the talks and giving everyone the opportunity to mix, and exchange ideas.

We welcome all presidents and committee members to join the discussion! Registration is free of charge, so register for the community president forum on our website today. If you are a service provider to communities and would like to join, please contact [email protected].
