2017 Call for Legal & Legislative Symposium Presentations
Share |

CAI-CT is planning the Fifth Annual Legal & Legislative Symposium.  As you may recall, we received very positive feedback regarding the format used in 2016 which consisted of association attorneys and other professionals providing approximately 45 minute presentations to board members and association managers, on topics which were timely and relevant.

The symposium will take place in the afternoon of Thursday, November 2, 2017, at Oronoque Village in Stratford, Connecticut.


We are now accepting proposals for the 2017 Symposium.  We invite CAI-CT members to submit proposals for presentation at the symposium.  We welcome professionals who are well-versed in association-related issues, including but not limited to: attorneys, insurance agents, accountants, and any other business partners who have particular knowledge or experience in a legal related issue.  Suggested topics include the following:


  • Fiduciary responsibilities for board members;
  • Conducting meetings and open decision-making;
  • Fair housing issues and how to avoid them;
  • When does email communication between board members cross the line into decision making (the utilization of the consent between meetings) Has 2/3 consent gone too far?
  • What is Executive Session?  When and how is it held and do you/should you have minutes taken of Executive Session
  • How to handle the board that meets “informally” - When does it become a “meeting”  
  • Managing conflict; and
  • Other? –Unit Owner Meetings for adoption of Governing Document Amendments (procedures when the votes are not enough to approve an amendment at the first meeting)
    Perhaps we go to two rounds versus three rounds or set up a panel of attorneys for the third round
  • CHRO – How to Avoiding claims
  • Leasing – what is a tenant/guest.   Use of amenities
  • Associations in the Media – How to deal with the press
  • Dealing with problem tenants & presidents


Proposals for presentations must be submitted to CAI-CT no later than August 15, 2017, in order to be considered.  


An Ad Hoc Committee composed of Legislative Action Committee (LAC) members will review the proposals and select the presenters by September 5, 2017.


Presenters will be required to remit a sponsorship fee of $500.  All proceeds from the symposium will be used to support the work of the Legislative Action Committee.

We look forward to reviewing your proposals.




Scott J. Sandler, Esq.

Chair – Legislative Action Committee
