Call for Presentations

 

Each year, various chapter committees plan educational programs targeted to community association volunteers, homeowners, and managers in all regions of the chapter.

All members are invited to share your expertise with the membership by submitting an idea for a presentation that you feel would be an engaging and noteworthy topic for a CAI educational program.

Program areas include Manager Education and Homeowner Education in chapter-wide programs including our Annual Conference & Expo and bi-annual Managers' Symposium, as well as in various regions including New Jersey, Philadelphia, Central Pennsylvania, and the Pocono Mountains.

Presentations should feature content that is specifically relevant to community associations and should be targeted to community association managers, management company executives, and homeowner board members. All submissions will be forwarded to the appropriate program committee for review and selection of presentations.

Selection Criteria
To be considered to speak at a chapter program, you must be a member of the chapter Speaker’s Bureau and abide by the chapter Speaker’s Policy.

Presentations that market specific products and/or services will not be approved. Presenters who violate the spirit of this or other policies may be precluded from participating in future programs. Presenters may sponsor the program at which they are presenting, but this does not influence the selection of speakers. Presenters do not have approval rights over program sponsors.

Please Note: The Chapter does not pay speakers nor does it pay or reimburse travel expenses of program speakers, but those expenses may be sponsored.

Please Note: Take-away handouts are encouraged but not required. Presenters are permitted to reproduce handouts on company letterhead. Handouts must be pre-approved by the chapter in advance of the program. Presenters are responsible for printing handouts, if applicable, at no expense to the chapter
