CAI to Hold Two Advanced Courses in Las Vegas

3/9/2007  -  Alexandria, VA
Community Associations Institute (CAI) will offer new advanced-level courses in the two days prior to its National Conference at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.


Focusing on contemporary issues in community association management, the courses will be held April 23 and 24. The conference—expected to be one of the most well attended events in CAI's history—begins with a Welcome Reception the evening of Wednesday, April 25, and concludes Saturday, April 28.

CAI provides professional education for community managers to enhance their skills and help them earn professional designations. Research conducted by the Foundation for Community Association Research shows that designations, such as the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation, lead to career advancement and increased earnings.

The first course, Managing the Financial Services Relationship, will provide students a better understanding of the financial services relationship and how managers can best meet the specific needs of their association clients. The course will address different types of bank accounts, remote deposit capture, how associations can borrow money, how should they invest reserves and more.

The second course, Managing Developing Communities, will provide managers with practical tools and techniques for establishing and shaping healthy and successful communities. The course will explore specific issues and challenges associated with the transition of communities from developer to owner control, including operational turnover, risk management and managing expectations.

Both courses run a day and a half.
