Attorney Adam Beaudoin will be a featured speaker at the 2021 Annual Conference & Exposition: Community NOW, hosted by the Community Associations Institute (CAI).
The yearly program will be held in person from August 18-21 in Las Vegas, with pre-conference education courses taking place from August 16-17.
Adam's joint presentation with attorney Cynthia Jones of Sellers, Ayers, Dortch & Lyons, P.A., will be held on Friday, August 20. Their session, "Member Action: What to Do When Residents Go Rogue," focuses on the complications that can arise when technology, human-decision making, and emotions mix. Here's a brief description of their course:
As community association leaders, how do we approach rogue behavior and encourage a unified community, especially in challenging times? The session includes a curated case study presentation highlighting the pitfalls that can happen when members want to remove board members during a virtual meeting. Plus, we will explore new processes and procedures for electronic voting. Come ready to share your experiences.
Other sessions will cover hot topic community associations issues, such as creating a drama-free community, handling difficult meetings and angry people, fee collections in a COVID-19 world, dealing with politics, free speech, and social justice issues, legislative updates, and much more.

CAI's annual conference isn't all about learning. There will be plenty of opportunities for community managers, management company executives, product and service providers, and association board members to reconnect or expand your network with small-group interactions and large social events.
