Steve has been a seminar speaker at many National CAI conferences and local CAI events. He has also been a National Instructor in the Professional Management Development Program since 1983. He currently teaches the PCAM Case Study class, which is the final step for a manager to earn the PCAM designation. While a national officer of CAI, Steve was invited to testify on Capitol Hill on behalf of the community association industry regarding an insurance bill.
Drawing from his knowledge and industry experience, he co-authored the CAI M-100 Course, Principles of Association Management; this course is the first course managers take in the Professional Management Development Program.
