Each fall, CAI's Large-Scale Managers Committee hosts an annual workshop exclusively for community managers specializing in large-scale communities. The workshop is hosted by at least one large-scale community and participants spend three days touring properties and attending innovative education sessions specifically designed for the large-scale community manager. A large-scale community is defined as a community providing municipal type services with a minimum of 1,000 units or minimum of 1,000 acres and a minimum of $2 million operating budget. The Workshop sells out quickly, and the 2016 workshop will be limited to 120 participants, so early registration is strongly recommended. Advanced registration (through April 30) is limited to onsite large-scale general managers, assistant general managers and those with a current LSM designation.
