Johnny Mac’s Story & The Reason We Choose this Charity as our 2020 Community Partner!

Feature Box Image
Johnny Mac was a soldier, husband, father and friend. While serving his country, he made the ultimate sacrifice. Now, he serves as our inspiration. Killed in action on May 18, 2010, in Kabul, Afghanistan. Colonel McHugh was a West Point graduate who had honorably and capably served our country for 24 years in the United States Army. He left behind a family of five children. Shockwaves rippled through our West Point class at this loss. The small effort to help a classmate’s family soon transformed into a mission to help as many military families as possible. Johnny Mac’s tragic death was our call to duty. To support those who serve. To Give Back Through Education.

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.

MEDIA RESPONSE
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. For information about resident rights and responsibilities for better communities, click here.
