Board Leadership Development Workshop Delaware

Saturday, October 19, 2019
08:30 AM - 03:30 PM (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

CAI's Board Leadership Development Workshop teaches you how to communicate with association residents, hire qualified managers and service providers, develop enforceable rules, interpret governing documents and more. It provides a comprehensive look at the roles and responsibilities of community association leaders and conveys information to help create and maintain the kind of community people want to call home.

Community association board members and volunteer leaders step up to take on positions of service and responsibility. They’re expected to anticipate issues, solve problems, meet the expectations of their residents and protect property values.

The workshop will teach you how to become a more successful board member and how you can recruit and support new volunteers. You’ll learn the role of the board, the president and other leadership positions, and you’ll identify effective ways to work with professional managers and service providers.

The workshop consists of five modules:

Module 1: Governing Documents and Roles & Responsibilities

Module 2: Communications, Meetings and Volunteerism

Module 3: Fundamentals of Financial Management

Module 4: Professional Advisors and Service Providers

Module 5: Association Rules and Conflict Resolution


The workshop includes a toolbox of support materials:

  • The Board Member Toolkit, a best-selling book from CAI Press
  • The Board Member Toolkit Workbook
  • Brochures and publications, such as The Homeowner & the Community Association
  • A copy of CAI’s award-winning Common Ground™ magazine

Each student will receive a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the class.
