Nominate Someone Today


CAI would like to acknowledge successful association board members who go above and beyond to serve their communities. Help us highlight these special individuals by nominating a board member colleague, client, or acquaintance as we salute the world's Outstanding Homeowner Leaders. We encourage you to nominate your fellow CAI members for this recognition! Nominations must be submitted by Jan. 12, 2018.

All nominees will be listed on our website as Outstanding Homeowner Leaders. CAI's Homeowner Leaders Council will select 10 honorees and one overall honoree. Each of the selected honorees will be offered free registration to the CAI Annual Conference and Exposition, May 9–12, in Washington, D.C., and will be recognized at the event. Don't delay…nominate an exceptional homeowner leader today!
