Best Practices for Association Websites & Social Media

Seminar followed by Manager Designations Happy Hour

Our Manager Ed Breakfast Club moves to an afternoon seminar on May 17th, followed by a happy hour and our annual Manager Designations Event. Managers who attend this education seminar, or who attend CAI's Annual Conference & Expo, receive complimentary admission to the happy hour! If you attended the Annual Conference & Expo and wish to register for the Happy Hour at no charge, please call the office at 610-783-1315 x10.

This is an important seminar for anyone managing a community with or considering a website or social media presence. While having a website and social media profile can be a tremendous benefit for the associations you manage, allowing you and the board to communicate with homeowners and potential homeowners, there are also many pitfalls. What you don’t know can be dangerous! Hear from social media and website experts on how to protect your community while also maximizing the benefits. 

Managers receive two hours of continuing education credit.
