AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING OUR 2020 ANNUAL CONFERENCE & EXPO
As you know, our 2020 Annual Conference & Expo, which was originally scheduled to happen earlier this month, was postponed to July. As we continue to monitor COVID-19 and its impact, it remains unclear how quickly business as usual will return to our region. Valley Forge Casino remains closed at this time and Montgomery County, PA, where the casino is located, continues to be in Pennsylvania’s red zone. Because of this continued uncertainty, the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the July date for our 2020 Annual Conference & Expo.
While the event will no longer be happening in July, the chapter staff, board, and Annual Conference & Expo Committee are continuing to work hard on ways to deliver a successful, safe event for our valued exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees later this year. We are tentatively working on plans to host the event in person on September 10, 2020 and, as a contingency, we will be preparing a plan to host the event virtually, if conditions necessitate.
We will be making another announcement during the first week of June regarding the nature of the September event, including options for exhibitors and sponsors who may choose not to participate. We thank you for your continued patience and support of the Pennsylvania & Delaware Valley Chapter of Community Associations Institute.

CAI's Suit-Casing Policy
Our exhibitors and sponsors spend a lot of money to participate in the Annual Conference & Expo. CAI has a no-tolerance policy regarding “suitcasing”, which describes the practice of non-exhibiting companies or individuals soliciting sales or sales leads on the trade show floor, in any session or networking reception, or anywhere within the event venue during CAI’s Annual Conference & Expo.
Non-member, non-exhibiting business partner guests are welcome to attend, after paying an admission fee, and will be issued a special name badge.
Interpretation of what constitutes suitcasing is at the sole discretion of CAI’s Board of Directors. Violators of these policies will be given a warning at the event. If the violation continues, the violator will be asked to leave the event, and charged the single booth rate which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor, or sponsor at any future chapter event.
