The 2021 Community Association Law Seminar will be held virtually January 25–29. This premier event developed by CAI’s College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL) to discuss emerging trends and issues relevant to the practice of community association law is more accessible and flexible than ever before to community association attorneys, insurance and risk management professionals, and other industry leaders.
Along with continuing legal education (CLE) credits, you will get a first look at recent legal cases and trends impacting the community association housing model. The Law Seminar is your one-stop event to learn about the latest industry issues, obtain a summary of dozens of the top appellate cases impacting community associations, and have the ability to connect with hundreds of your peers.
While CAI offers webinars, legal updates, and legislative resources throughout the year, this event is a culmination of all that CAI and CCAL offer to our community association law and insurance professionals. Over the course of a week, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the live sessions you’re interested in while earning your annual CLE credits. The 2021 Law Seminar has 14 extraordinary and diverse education sessions spotlighting the leading issues relevant to community associations presented by the industry’s most engaging and thoughtful attorneys and insurance and risk management professionals.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic forced community associations to change how they conduct business, the 2021 Law Seminar will provide attendees sessions on limited liability, constitutional challenges, virtual meetings, and local, state, and federal government orders related to the coronavirus.
Education sessions also will focus on how community associations have navigated social justice issues and racial discrimination and encouraged their residents to practice civility during a time with unprecedented political divide. Other hot-topic education sessions include best practices on past-due assessment collections, leveraging the latest advances in technology for your law practice, free speech, and much more.
Spend around three hours each day taking a break from your current fast-paced and busy professional environment and learn about the latest issues and trends impacting the community association housing model.
In our ever-changing world, it is so important for us as professionals to stay on top of all the happenings in our industry, not just locally, but nationwide. That’s what distinguishes the true professionals from those who simply “dabble” in the industry. The Law Seminar is our way of doing this and with COVID-19 being a complete game-changer, you can’t afford to miss the 2021 Law Seminar. Hope to see all of you there!
