About Us

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

​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.
