The major areas where CAI membership has been valuable to me as a board member are through its publications, webinars, and events. CAI provides a wealth of information on many aspects of community living such as maintenance, finance, and so on. The learning opportunities, knowledge, and insight I have gained through CAI membership has helped me to be a proactive board member and better serve my community.
Before we joined CAI, two of us attended a legislative update presentation. My reaction was, “Wow!” I was board president and shocked how little I knew. Thankfully, our property manager encouraged us to join CAI in order to learn more about our roles and responsibilities. I firmly believe that all common interest community volunteers should join and be involved in CAI to take advantage of its many educational programs.
