CAI believes law and regulation to promote healthy, vibrant communities is best crafted and enacted by state governments instead of the federal level so that there is local control of land-use and real estate decisions. The Uniform Law Commission drafted the Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act (UCIOA) to provide states with non-partisan, well-conceived and well-drafted legislation. The most effective laws use the UCIOA as a basis for their state legislation.
Representing more than 40,000 members dedicated to building better communities, CAI develops and provides education and resources to residents, association board members, community managers and other professionals who support community associations. CAI's mission is to promote effective leadership and responsible citizenship in homeowners associations and condominium communities.
