FALLS CHURCH, Va., Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Diverse legal issues affecting the governance and management of homeowner and condominium associations in California will be the focus of a day-long legal forum Oct. 19 in Temecula.
CAI Legal Forum: California Communities will provide essential legal information and perspective on rules enforcement, dispute resolution, reasonable accommodations, HUD approvals and recertifications, governing documents, social media and much more. More than 60 million Americans, including at least 10 million Californians, make their homes in homeowner and condominium associations, cooperatives and other planned communities.
The forum will be held at the Pechanga Resort & Casino at 45000 Pechanga Parkway. Registration opens at 8 a.m., with concurrent sessions beginning at 9 a.m.
Last year's forum in Long Beach was attended by hundreds of community managers and association homeowners, including board members and other community leaders.
Hosted by the eight California chapters of Community Associations Institute (CAI) and CAI's California Legislative Action Committee, the event will feature two distinct learning tracks, one for community managers and the other for homeowner volunteer leaders. Sessions are led by government and industry experts, including association management professionals and members of CAI's College of Community Association Lawyers.
The eight hosting CAI chapters are Bay Area and Central California, California North, Channel Islands, Coachella Valley, Greater Inland Empire, Greater Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. Chapter contact information is available at www.caionline.org/chapters.
The keynote speaker will be Charles Marshall. The nationally syndicated humor columnist will share the tools of success, using inspirational stories of real-life underdogs who have overcome obstacles.
