SESSION #1 - AI in the Condo Industry: Opportunities and Hazards

How can AI be used in the condominium industry? What potential pitfalls must be considered? There is a plethora of AI enabled solutions in the marketplace, which can be leveraged in different areas from marketing and operations to customer support. In this seminar, a forward-thinking property manager, condominium lawyer, and software company founder will walk through several AI use cases relevant to condominiums. We will also examine potential hazards that we need to be mindful of when leveraging these AI solutions.

SESSION #3 - EV Chargers and The ZEVIP (Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure program)

The ZEVIP (Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure program) is a multi-year federally funded program that provides subsidies in the form of cash rebates to support the deployment of EV charging stations (EVSEs) in Multi Unit Residential Buildings (MURBs).

CCI-South Alberta is partnering with Kaleidoscope Ventures Inc. to take part in the ZEVIP Program, apply for funding, administer and distribute it to Condominium Corporations or Strata.

CCI South Alberta sees this as a value-added bonus to membership with CCI.

Networking Breakout Rooms

Engage in a discussion-based session as we delve into the core pillars of CCI; membership, sponsorship, events, finance, and education. Attendees will have the opportunity to choose a breakout room most suited to their role within their local chapter and are encouraged to bring specific examples or case studies from their own experiences to enrich the discussions. These discussions are intended to set the stage for impactful networking and brainstorming at our next in-person event. The ultimate goal is to foster a collaborative environment where attendees can learn from each other and gather valuable insights for the growth and success of their respective areas. Share your successes, gain insights, and contribute to the collective wisdom of the Canadian condominium community.

Join us for a collaborative exploration of key areas that drive CCI’s success!
