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 2018 workshop will be limited to 120 participants, so early registration is strongly recommended. Advanced registration (through February 28, 2018) is limited to onsite large-scale general managers, assistant general managers and those with a current LSM designation.
The Large-Scale Managers Committee (LSMC) has established grant funds to provide financial support for large-scale managers, who are in need, to attend the annual Workshop. Two grant recipients will receive complimentary Workshop registration and a maximum of $1,000 to cover expenses related to the 2018 Workshop. Two scholarships are available for the 2018 Workshop.
