Each year the CAI Law Seminar Planning Committee reviews over 50 presentations and topic submissions focused solely on community association law from over 100 potential presenters to determine the breakout sessions for the following year’s event. Only one-third of the presentation and topic submissions are selected.
This year the Best Manuscript Award went to the panel of Kevin Hirzel, Edward Hoffman, Jr., Michael S. Karpoff, and Todd A. Sinkins. According to Matthew Ober, Esq. a member of the Board of Governors for CAI, this team “put together a timely, thought-provoking, and exceptionally written manuscript that is a must read for anyone addressing religion in community associations in today’s climate.” Mr. Ober continued, “The manuscript was an excellent complement to their well-received law seminar presentation. Congratulations!”
