Communit​y association legal issues are the focus of a special, one-day event for community managers, association board members and other homeowners. The CAI Legal Forum is hosted by CAI's eight California chapters and CAI's California Legislative Action Comm​ittee. 

With nearly 50 years of industry experience and a member network of homeowners, managers, attorneys and other business professionals greater than 45,000 strong, CAI is in a unique position to provide both a local focus and a global perspective on the issues that affect community as sociatio​n governance and operations.

Sessions are presented by expert panels, including government officials, seasoned management professionals and members of the prestigious College of Community Association Lawyers, a professional organization that represents the very best attorneys in the industry.

Anyone who lives in, works for or provides services to a California community association will leave the event more informed, more engaged and better able to contribute to a successful community.
