The Chesapeake Region Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) will host the CAI Community Governance course in Pikesville, Maryland on February 9 and 10, 2012. The two-day course is part of CAI’s Professional Management Development Program for community association managers.
Topics include the legal responsibilities of condo and HOA boards and managers; the relationship between association governing documents and state, local and federal statutes; and the contractual and corporate basis for the manager’s role in community decision-making. The course also covers rules development and enforcement and potential conflicts of interest which managers and association boards may encounter.
The instructor for the Baltimore-area program will be Maryland attorney Tom Schild who is a member of CAI’s National Faculty and the College of Community Association Lawyers. Tom has taught the Community Governance course in cities throughout the United States, including Seattle, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Chicago, Washington, Cincinnati, Nashville, Sarasota and Charleston.
