Please read these messages from the CAI TN Chapter Office:

Dear Members,

It is with regret that I must inform you that our lunch meeting scheduled for Friday, March 27th, 2020, has been cancelled.

In coming to this difficult decision, your board of directors deliberated about the cancellation and after reviewing multiple sources of information, including the guidelines from the CDC, the decision to cancel was made.

In the coming weeks, please keep your thoughts on your neighbors and our country's citizens as we jointly struggle with the COVID-19 situation and the changes it is imposing on our daily lives. Be diligent in taking precautions for yourself and your families.

Any prepayments will be applied to the next CAI luncheon event.

Be Well,
Faye C. Ellis, CPM,
Executive Director


March 2020 Tennessee Tornadoes Recovery Effort

I know this message finds some of you without a home, at a loss of things you hold dear. Mine and my family's prayer is that you have the support you need during this time. Those of us who were not adversely affected by the tornado need to be as generous as possible with our time and resources for our neighbors and friends who are mourning losses while cleaning, searching, trying to find or organize paperwork and figure out how to rebuild.

We are a strong community who always supports each other and this time will be no different than any other. The nation is praying for and supporting those who have been struck by this tornado.

I know many of you want to volunteer and help right now. Local officials are saying the best way to do that is to stay out of the areas that are most heavily impacted so that they can complete their work of ensuring the area is safe.

The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has set up an emergency response fund. If you would like to volunteer to help in the recovery effort, Hands on Nashville is coordinating that.

Power Outage Update
NES crews are working diligently to restore as many homes as soon as possible. NES crews still have to work through "normal" storm damage to get the rest of the community restored.

I am working on setting up a meeting with the Department of Commerce and Insurance to come to our community to inform citizens of all the information needed to rebuild. Major carriers will also be in attendance.

Please note: CAI has created some disaster response/recovery resources. Click to view.

Thank you, Faye Ellis, CPM, Executive Director

Attn: Members! You may have seen or heard stories recently in the media regarding shootings in an HOA over unpaid assessments. See the most recent here.

In the event you are contacted by the media for a particular incident or a general inquiry, we drafted a response you and/or your board may want to consider using (see below). We don’t recommend you respond unless you are contacted by the media. If you need any assistance with a media response, please let us know.

Community Associations Institute (CAI) is deeply saddened and troubled by the recent mass shootings in our country. We are also concerned about the news of a recent shooting of a homeowners association board president’s wife by a resident allegedly delinquent in paying their assessments. Our neighborhoods should be safe and secure with residents who are kind and compassionate. CAI members hope for a full recovery and swift justice for the victim.
