Gala Canceled

A message from the Chapter President, Jaye Kloss, CMCA, AMS, PCAM

Today's COVID Restrictions by Mayor Cooper have caused us to rethink the Holiday Gala. I have made a difficult decision to cancel the event and I hope everyone will understand. Our Board of Directors have chosen the following to receive chapter awards and I want to congratulate the following:

President's Award: Faye Ellis, CPM

Manager of the Year Award: Dorothy Ratliff, CMCA, AMS

Business Partner of the Year Award: Chuck Negas

Please reach out to each of these winners and congratulate them for a job well done.

The 2021 swearing-in of officers will be held January 29th, the last Friday of January. It will be held prior to the first Board of Directors meeting for the year.

I wish everyone a safe and healthy Thanksgiving Day.

CAI is breaking new ground. We are proud to announce that we are hosting a live virtual PCAM Case Study for the first time.  

As you know, the PCAM Case Study is a comprehensive examination of a community association, combining classroom discussion with an extensive on-site inspection—and the final step toward earning your prestigious Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation. The new virtual two-day program features a video property tour and live interviews with the host community manager, board, business partners, and instructors, all online.  

Offering Dates:  
• December 3–4 2020 - Virtual Case Study  
• February 18–19, 2021 - Virtual Case Study

  The virtual offerings replace the originally scheduled in person Case Studies for the remainder of the year. To be eligible to register, you must have an approved PCAM application on file.

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.

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.
