​CAI is an international membership organization dedicated to building better communities. With more than 33,500 members, CAI works in partnership with 60 chapters, including a chapter in South Africa, as well as with housing leaders in a number of other countries, including Australia, Canada, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. CAI provides information, education and resources to the homeowner volunteers who govern communities and the professionals who support them.

 

CAI members include association board members and other homeowner leaders, community managers, association management firms and other professionals who provide products and services to associations.  CAI members have access to information on the trends in this rapidly changing industry—with practical knowledge and insights from leaders in the field, best practices, research and tools you can use every day. CAI provides information, resources and education programs—whether you're a board member, manager, CEO or professional service provider to community associations. Keep current on the latest news, laws and issues affecting community associations, condominiums and cooperatives, and the homeowners who call them home.  We are the recognized experts for community association governance and management and the first and only national organization created specifically to meet the needs of all community association stakeholders

 

CAI serves community associations and homeowners by:

  • Advancing excellence through seminars, workshops, conferences and education programs, most of which lead to professional designations for community managers and other industry professionals.

  • Publishing the largest collection of resources available on community association management and governance, including website content, books, guides, Common Ground magazine and specialized newsletters.

  • Advocating on behalf of common-interest communities and industry professionals before legislatures, regulatory bodies and the courts.

  • Conducting research and serving as an international clearinghouse for information, innovations and best practices in community association development, governance and management.

  •  

We believe homeowner and condominium associations should strive to exceed the expectations of their residents. We work toward this goal by identifying and meeting the evolving needs of the professionals and volunteers who serve associations, by being a trusted forum for the collaborative exchange of knowledge and information, and by helping our members learn, achieve and excel.

 

Our mission is to inspire professionalism, effective leadership and responsible citizenship—ideals reflected in associations that are preferred places to call home.
