A Keynoter’s Peek into the Future of Associations



Our keynote speaker Julie Howard, a former president of Community Associations Institute, Julie was a member of the national panel that researched and published COMMUNITY NEXT: 2020 AND BEYOND, an initiative to envision the future of the community association model.





  • “Community association management” as a college major?

  • Communities becoming unintended ‘assisted living’ facilities?

  • ‘Amenity manager’ as one of several new management specialties?

  • Payment for community Board service?



This is just a small sample of the concepts you’ll hear about in our 2017 Annual Conference keynote presentation by Julie Howard. Julie sets the tone for “the road ahead” with a look at how the community association world is expected to evolve. We’ll hear perspectives on the challenges and opportunities that await common-interest communities in the years to come, and what we can do now to minimize uncertainty and elevate our collective ability to manage the future.

Julie was a member of the select national panel of stakeholders that researched and published “Community NEXT: 2020 and Beyond,” an initiative to envision the future of the community association model. More than 50 individuals came together over a year’s time to identify and research the wide variety of key issues and trends expected to define our industry over the next 15 years.

She is a past president of both the Georgia CAI chapter and the international CAI organization, and was a member of the Board of Trustees from 2009-2015. Her insights are enriched by her professional role as a longtime HOA attorney, now a fellow in and member of the Board of Governors of the College of Community Association Lawyers.
