Marketing Express Talk in the Chat Room: How to Market Your Community to Millennials, presented by Jennifer Harrington & Lynne Hartmann, CMCA, AMS, PCAM, Associa MidAtlantic, AAMC. Ensuring that your community is ready to meet the diverse needs and wants of a changing generation can seem overwhelming. Still, as the demographics of homebuyers begin to shift, your community needs to be prepared. Amenities, school districts, and walkability are just a few of the factors this generation is looking for when buying a home. In this talk, you'll Learn four ways to make your community more attractive to Millennials and their families. 

Community Building Express Talk in the Chat Room: From Ghost Town to Gold Star – presented by Paul Raetsch & Bob Kahrmann, past presidents of Horizons at Woods Landing HOA, and George Greatrex, Esq., Hill Wallack. This presentation highlights one major benefit of membership in CAI; appropriate legal counsel for community associations. Learn how Horizons at Woods Landing HOA, by joining and participating in CAI, went from “Ghost Town” to a “Gold Star” community. Two past Presidents and the association attorney, selected through our membership in CAI, will cite specific examples of how association boards can prevent falling into, getting out of, and staying out of, awkward or potentially bad situations.

Maintenance Express Talk in the Chat Room: Assessing the Health of Your Sewer System Using Underground Trenchless Pipe Repair, presented by Standard Pipe. Learn to identify the importance of sewer system maintenance and how trenchless (no excavation) techniques can be utilized in your community. The presentation will focus on the importance of establishing a proactive maintenance plan which will warn of potential problems and may lead to a reduction in required maintenance activity once problems are uncovered.  The key factor is to view this component as a “sewer system health” check-up in order to act in a proactive vs. reactive manner.
