This weekend, several members of LeClairRyan’s Community Association Industry Team attended the CAI National Law Conference in Las Vegas. The conference featured speeches, panel presentations, and educational sessions presented by a variety of industry speakers on topics ranging from the federal mortgage agencies, to new legislation affecting the industry, to cutting edge issues such as transfer-fee covenants.

One of the highlights of the conference featured a mention of this blog! During one of the first sessions of the conference, the speaker discussed recent trends in the industry, and commented that community associations were facing unique issues, including "rent a goat" issues. The speaker proceeded to mention the blog post on this very blog, which discussed the issue.

All in all, the conference was very informative. Below is a picture of St. Mark’s square in the Venetian hotel (where the conference was held).
