Community NOW!

Register TODAY!

As professionals, we all strive to excel by learning more, taking more action, and planning for the future. But it’s time to engage in the moment to ensure we get the most out of each day. Introducing the new 2019 CAI Annual Conference and Exposition: Community NOW.

Every year, community association leaders, managers, and business partners from around the world attend CAI’s Annual Conference and Exposition for face-to-face opportunities to gain knowledge that will support their work year-round. Learn from 30+ education sessions, expand your perspective with inspiring keynotes, and network every day with peers who understand how to be successful and how to support your challenges. Here's what else you'll get from the conference:

 EDUCATION 34 sessions in 6 education tracks, 6 TEDTalk options, and 5 ShopTalks to personalize your conference experience. Pre-conference professional development courses, including the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM®) Case Study and the Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) Exam.

 NETWORKING Exchange ideas, build your professional peer team, and socialize with fellow conference attendees at the annual welcome reception, chapter party, and CAI awards dinner.

 DESIGNATIONS Earn continuing education credit for professional certifications and designations.

 KEYNOTE SPEAKERS Learn about attracting, engaging, and retaining the best managers and leaders, and discover how nice people finish first in the business world from well-known thought leaders, Peter Sheahan and Linda Kaplan Thaler. 

 EXPOSITION HALL Discover a world-class exposition hall where you can embrace the latest systems, tools, and technology to improve your community association.

We know the future is unpredictable, so let Community NOW give you the education that you need to know today so you can make better, informed decisions that set you up for success tomorrow.
