Virtual Business Partner Essentials

Wednesday, March 17, 2021
03:00 PM - 04:30 PM (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Business Partner Essentials is a unique course to help CAI-member product and service providers better understand CAI, community associations and the industry at large. Individuals who pass the course and maintain CAI membership earn the CAI Educated Business Partner (EBP) distinction, gaining special recognition among thousands of companies and professionals who support common-interest communities—accountants, attorneys, bankers, insurance professionals, landscapers, painters, reserve specialists, software providers and many others.

Upon completion of the virtual course, attendees will take the online exam and receive instant results. Pass the exam and you can begin using the Educated Business Partner Distinction from CAI! 

We encourage individuals who earn the EBP distinction to promote the achievement with a news release, on their corporate websites or in any way that gives the company an edge in the competitive community association marketplace. Members that take the class and pass the exam can quote this language—verbatim—to augment any publicity you decide to do.

“We congratulate CAI members who take the time and effort to complete the CAI Educated Business Partner online course,” said CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, CAE. “This achievement demonstrates a personal and corporate commitment to industry-specific education. It also reflects a desire to understand not just their own business clients, but also the nature and challenges of community associations in general. CAI applauds this accomplishment.”

This course is for chapter members only.

Registration included complimentary attendance to the St. Paddy's Day Virtual Happy Hour immediately following the Business Partners Essentials course.
