CA DAY 2020 is coming up on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center!
Please mark your calendars and signup. Check out the information on the web site of the Southeastern Virginia Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) – www.sevacai.org. The theme this year is Salute to Service. At a 9 o’clock session Mike Inman, along with insurance expert, Connie Phillips, will be speaking on water issues related to association insurance coverages – this is a hot topic not to be missed. Jeanne Lauer, who is a member of the Virginia Legislative Action Committee for CAI, will host a chat table on this year’s legislative developments in the General Assembly. Later, Jeanne will speak about Association Do’s and Don’ts relative to community activities (an enticing topic for sure). During this day-long event (which includes an excellent buffet lunch) there will be many excellent and timely topics presented and over 50 vendors to visit in the exhibition hall. We are one of them and hope you will be visiting with us at our booth on the 14th.
WE WELCOME ATTORNEY MATT WEINBERG TO OUR TEAM. Matt has been practicing law in the area for several years and devotes most of his time to civil litigation matters in courts throughout the region. He has experience in community association law as well as other areas including contract disputes, commercial law and family law. Please come over and meet Matt at our booth at CA Day.
Member Participation at Meetings – There are Rules
Frequently there are misunderstandings about the right of owners to participate in both meetings of the board of the directors as well as meetings of the members. It is important that all members of an association understand the rules that apply so that they are not disappointed by the limitations that may apply to their participation. Rules, imposed either by statute or the bylaws, are needed in order to insure an orderly meeting and efficient consideration of the various agenda items.
