CAI-CT Members Receive this electronic newsletter as part of there membership with CAI. Below is an excerpt from MARCH 2007.

A Laugh at Our Expense - Self-described “homeowner advocates” don’t typically use humor to chastise the community association industry. They’re generally content with scorching commentary on websites, virulent blogs and angry quotes in the mainstream media, but that could be changing.

What Happens in Vegas Should Include You - CAI’s 56th National Conference and Exposition—April 25-28 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas—promises to be the best and perhaps most well-attended CAI event ever.

In Spring, an Association's Fancy Turns to Thoughts of... Maintenance - Ah, spring…the time when maintenance tasks seem to sprout like crocuses. Winter’s salt and sand have done a number on the asphalt, the shrubs lost their battle with the snow, the playground needs a new layer of ground cover, the pool must be readied for the season opening, and suddenly everyone wants to paint their doors in spring colors.

Tell Us What You Think of Double Taxation - Many people in community associations pay twice for the same services.  For instance, they pay once in their association dues for garbage collection, and they pay again in local taxes for the same municipal service—even though the municipality does not provide garbage collection to the association.

Will You Recruit CAI's 30,000th Member? - CAI is closing in on 30,000 members, and a large part of our recent growth is a direct result of member recruiters. You can help us continue this success by participating in our 2007 “Join the Club” Recruiter Club campaign.

Improved Foundation Website Awaits Your Visit - The Foundation for Community Association Research recently unveiled an enhanced website as part of a marketing campaign to raise its visibility.

Recognizing Leadership and Chapter Excellence - A membership association like CAI cannot survive without the active support of member volunteers. Dedicated members serve on the Board of Trustees and Membership Representation Groups, teach courses, work on legislative issues, write for our magazines and newsletters, recruit new members, author books and more.

CCAL Inducts Eleven Attorneys - Eleven attorneys serving common-interest communities across the country were inducted into the College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL) during CAI’s 28th Annual Community Association Law Seminar in late February. Established by CAI in 1993, CCAL consists of CAI member attorneys who have distinguished themselves through contributions to the practice of community association law.
