THE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION FACT BOOK
was developed to support the Foundation's mission of providing research-based information to all community association stakeholders who work with the Foundation
and CAI to build better communities.

The Long Island Chapter of the Community Associations Institute is one of 60 CAI chapters, and while the chapter provides a wealth of member benefits, your member benefits include everything our national organization has to offer as well. If you are not aware of these myriad benefits, you’re not taking full advantage of your CAI membership. With that in mind, here is a primer on your national organization—what we do, how we serve you and what and we accomplish on behalf of your associations, your professions and the more than 60 million Americans who make their homes in common-interest communities.
The Long Island Chapter of Community Associations Institute serves the educational, business, and networking needs of the community association industry in Nassau and Suffolk. Members include professional managers and community volunteers from condominium, cooperative, and homeowner associations as well as those who provide services and products to associations.
Community Associations Institute is the largest organization supporting community associations in the United States.

EDUCATION FOR MANAGERS
Community managers are the professional backbone of the communities they serve, providing the skills and expertise that are essential to the successful management of associations. CAI offers training and credentials with the Professional Management Development Program (PMDP).
Community associations are subject to state laws that control how associations are established, governed and managed. This state-based regulatory system has proven successful because it is predicated on the principle of local control over land-use and real estate decisions.
CAI INTERACTIVE ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVE
CAI’s Community Green initiative builds on the principle of think globally, act locally by empowering associations and homeowners to make informed, consensus-driven decisions to conserve energy and protect the environment.
