February Law Seminar to Address Toxic Mold, Construction Defects, Fair Housing and More

12/9/2003  -  Alexandria, VA

The 25th Annual Community Association Law Seminar, a two-day forum exploring future trends, practices and hot-button issues in community association law, will be held February 20-21 at the Venetian Las Vegas in Nevada.

Many of the nation's leading authorities on community association law will address today's most challenging legal issues, including:

  • Construction defect claims
  • Fair housing issues
  • Free speech in associations
  • Foreclosures
  • Insurance defense counsel
  • Tenant restrictions
  • Trends in the business judgment rule
  • Toxic mold
  • Avoiding malpractice with your computer

The event will feature a luncheon presentation by Wayne S. Hyatt, Esq., founder of the annual event. A past president of the Community Associations Institute and the CAI Research Foundation, Hyatt is president of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers, trustee of the Urban Land Institute and serves on the Board of Governors of the Anglo-American Real Property Institute.

The seminar will include an in-depth review of the most significant cases in community association law in 2003, as well as a session devoted specifically to California case law. Business- and client-building opportunities will also be addressed, with sessions on advertising and technologies for business development.

"This is a must-attend event for anybody who needs to remain up to speed on critical legal issues facing community associations," says Thomas J. Hindman, Esq., Dean of CAI's College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL). "It's an excellent opportunity not just for attorneys in the community association field, but also for professional managers, management company executives and others who need to understand the legal ramifications of the key issues that confront associations."

More than 200 professionals attended the 2002 Law Seminar.

The seminar is developed by CCAL as part of its commitment to advance the knowledge and practice of community association law. February's seminar is sponsored by SmartStreet, a service of First Capital Bank.
