Why Community Associations Work
We have added a new topic to our online registry of background documents. “Why Community Associations Work” is now one of 18 summaries, which can also be used as general backgrounders for CAI members, the media, public policy officials and others. Other summary documents address the history of community associations, association governance, governing documents, foreclosure, green issues, yard signs and free speech, the profession of community management and more. The backgrounders are available in the Press Room under Issues & Perspectives. Contact Frank Rathbun (firstname.lastname@example.org), CAI’s vice president of communications and marketing, if you have any questions.
