Manager Education

CAI's Manager Education Program consists of local seminars and national Professional Management Development Program courses designed specifically for the continuing education of community association managers. These programs are especially intended for managers interested in professional development, and those managers who are interested in achieving a CAI professional manager designation or re-certifications. Educational classes hosted by CAI are among the only vehicles for continuing education credits for the Professional Community Association Manager designation. Most seminars hosted by business partner members do not qualify for PCAM credits.

 Managers Legal Roundtables

Join various CAI member law firms at this legal roundtable presentation. Attendees will rotate from each legal roundtable and learn valuable information on various legal topics impacting community associations today. Specific legal topics to be announced.

Speakers & Roundtable Topics

Roundtable 1: Who is watching you in your community?
Security Cameras are the new norm in community Associations.    Are they allowed?  Do they represent an invasion of privacy?  Are there risks and liability for their use by Unit Owners or the Association?  We will look at and discuss this growing issue for Community Associations.
Speaker: Adam G. Marcus, Esq., Marcus & Hoffman

Roundtable 2: Transitioning the New Community from the Developer
Speaker: Carl N. Weiner, Esq., Hamburg, Rubin, Mullin, Maxwell & Lupin

Roundtable 3: Preventing and Addressing Harassment and Abuse of Community Association Managers
Harassment and abuse of the Community Association manager by members of the association may not only result in liability for the association, but also create a difficult and unpleasant working environment for the manager and other employees. This presentation focuses on best practices for associations to prevent abuse and harassment of association managers as well as to address such abuse and harassment when it occurs. Related policies for employee handbooks addressing harassment and abuse of managers and other employees will also be discussed.
Speaker: Katrina M. Homel, Esq., Hill Wallack LLP 

Roundtable 4: Properly Enforcing Rules & Regulations. 
Pools, trash, outdoor elements (architectural control), parking, pets/animals, curtains, outdoor storage, maintenance and playgrounds … all of these examples involve the enforcement of a community’s covenants, restrictions and rules & regulations for the benefit of every member/owner in the community.   In this Roundtable we will discuss the proper enforcement of covenants, restrictions and rules & regulations and the risks that are present when proper enforcement doesn’t happen.
Speaker: Ed Hoffman Jr., Esq., Barrow | Hoffman
