Building Better Communities

Community Associations Institute (CAI) is dedicated to fostering vibrant, competent, harmonious community associations, both nationally and internationally.  

For over 40 years, CAI has been the leader in providing education and resources to the volunteer homeowners who govern community associations and the professionals who support them. Our members include community association volunteer leaders, professional managers, community management firms and other professionals and companies that provide products and services to associations.

Working closely with our 62 U.S. and international chapters, we bring together experts to provide the latest information on community association management and governance. We serve our members with books, seminars and workshops, research, continuing education and periodicals, including Common Ground magazine and specialized newsletters on community association management, governance and law.
