Washington DC - The National Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) celebrated its 45th anniversary by bringing its Annual Conference and Expo back to our Nation's Capital last week, where thousands of property managers, association members and homeowners convened.
We partner with CAI every year to promote our Condo and HOA Insurance program and to stay ahead with the latest developments in the industry.
Formed as a joint effort between local associations, government agencies and non-profit organizations, CAI's role is to inform, educate and provide resources for community associations throughout the country and around the world.
This year's theme We the Community was focused primarily on advocacy. As discussed below, the 2018 Advocacy Summit took place last week on Capitol Hill. The Association also celebrated its 45th anniversary with exciting (and breaking) news about the growth of CAI.
The Growth of CAI
In an interview with Allen and Lauri, the CEO of CAI shared some exciting news about the growth of the Association.
In time for its 45th anniversary, CAI experienced significant growth over the last 6 months with over 10% increase in membership. The Association currently has 38,000 members worldwide, including chapters in Canada, the Middle East and South Africa.
Just last week, the board of trustees authorized Idaho as the newest and 64th Chapter of CAI.
CAI has experienced significant growth in our membership, with over 10% growth over the last 6 months.
