Gold Star Communities


Life is Better in a Gold Star Community

CAI’s Gold Star Community© program recognizes those communities that work hard to develop and maintain standards, encourage community participation, maintain fiscal stability and positively impact the quality of life for residents.

Homeowners and managers alike believe this program is an excellent way to evaluate policies and procedures, and assure that their community operates within basic industry standards. For more information, download the Gold Star Brochure.

What Gold Star Means to Your Community Association

Once approved, you'll receive a Gold Star certificate and a sign for your community, as well as a brochure you can share with prospective buyers in your community that explains why your association is Gold Star. To nominate your community for Gold Star status, download an application and submit it during one of the following nomination periods:

January 1 - March 1
August 1 - October 1

Qualifying communities will receive the award and be recognized at the Annual Conference & Expo in the Spring or the Annual Meeting & Holiday Party in December of each year.
