Submit a Presentation

Submit a topic in our Call for Presentations and become a speaker at an upcoming chapter program.

Submit an Educational Topic for Consideration

CAI’s program committees are always looking for experienced thought leaders, industry innovators, and dynamic presenters who can engage their audience and initiate thought-provoking discussions focused on learning that can help us grow and advance the community association industry.

Members that have subject matter expertise are invited to join the chapter Speakers Bureau and present an educational program. The educational programs hosted by CAI benefit our membership in the following ways:

  • CAI presents many learning opportunities for community association managers, volunteer leaders and homeowners. Managers receive continuing education credits for each program to achieve and retain CAI professional manager designations.
  • By speaking at these educational programs, business partners and managers who are subject matter experts gain exposure to and build relationships with our membership.
What are we looking for? How can you improve your chances of being selected to speak?
  • Be creative.
  • What’s new? The same old topics don’t work anymore. Think of hot topics and trends in the industry.
  • Sessions that are interactive and addressing trends and new information will stand out. All submissions will be forwarded to the appropriate program committee for review and selection of presentations.
  • Current Events – the Surfside tragedy and related issues, recovery from Covid, dealing with society’s divisions and rising levels of anger among neighbors – these are all trending topics that managers and homeowners want to hear about.
What you need to submit a topic in the Call for Presentations:
  1. Title of your presentation
  2. Short description of the program you would like to present
  3. Name and short bio of speaker
  4. You do not need to submit an agenda or power point presentation at this time.

Click button below to complete the online Call for Presentations form. You can submit as many topics as you’d like but can only submit one at a time.
