Leadership development on a local, regional and national level is a direct result of CAI’s success. Development and instruction is emphasized at orientation programs, Board Training, speaker training, the Annual Conference & Expo as well as within the council and committee structure.


One of the most valuable benefits of membership is a monthly subscription to The Communicator magazine, the Chapter’s most educational resource, dedicated to providing quality, expert articles and information about the daily operations and issues community association managers and volunteers face. Our magazine has a circulation of 3,500 and a readership of 12,000. Subscriptions are available.

A progressive communication tool, is the Chapter’s web site, which supplies industry related news, upcoming events, and jurisdictional legislative information. CAI National’s web site, also provides an opportunity to link up and communicate with other community association’s pages and members nationwide.

Federal, state, and local legislative incentives are driven by five National and Chapter legislative committees. Their activities are devoted to lobbying legal agendas in the community association forum in our area. Member involvement has been key in achieving legislative successes and is strongly encouraged. The Annual Legal Update reviews current legislative issues and law changes, and legislative updates appear regularly in our magazine.

CAI Administers nationally recognized designation programs, which recognize those professionals in the community association industry who have met required levels of experience and education.

The Annual Conference & Expo, is an all-day educational opportunity to gain knowledge and experience related to both common and difficult problems encountered while managing or volunteering with your community. The accompanying trade show provides a venue to find out what new and innovative products/services are available to the association industry. This is an event you don’t want to miss!
