2017 Legal & Legislative Symposium & Happy Hour

Each year, cases involving various aspects of community association law work their way through our state and federal courts. The resulting decisions often have a far-reaching impact on and serious consequences for planned communities and condominium associations. Experienced attorneys and members of CAI’s Pennsylvania Legislative Action Committee will lead an interactive program, focused on the latest judicial decisions, new and pending legislation and emerging trends affecting condominium and homeowners associations in today's marketplace.  This year’s Legal Symposium will provide you with a unique learning opportunity to identify and discuss such emerging trends and legal issues so that you can effectively keep up with the evolving community association field.

This program is designed for attorneys, property managers, insurers, board members and other practitioners who need to be “in the know” in the community association arena today.

Pennsylvania Joint State Government Commission Study

The Pennsylvania Joint State Government Commission released its report on Common Interest Ownership Communities in late December, 2011, and while the commission’s report falls short in certain goals outlined in the legislature’s resolution, the report is full of useful information and recommendations for community associations and policymakers in Pennsylvania.
