Community managers, business partners, and homeowner leaders: Shape the future of community association living by making your mark as a CAI leader!
CAI is governed by dedicated members like you who help shape the future of the community association marketplace, and you can make a difference by applying to serve on one of CAI's Membership Representation Groups (MRG) by July 7! Open positions will be filled via election in August, and eligible voting members will be notified at that time.
There are 15 total open positions on CAI's three Membership Representation Groups (MRGs):
Each MRG represents its corresponding category of membership to help ensure that CAI is meeting member needs. The MRGs are not chapter-based and are not involved in chapter policy, operations, or governance.
CAI operates under Carver Policy Governance®, a governing style that encourages strategic leadership rather than administrative detail, and makes a clear distinction of board and staff roles. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with Policy Governance® at www.carvergovernance.com before running for a position on an MRG.
MRGs meet in person two times per year at a retreat with the Board of Trustees (typically in January) and at the CAI Annual Conference each spring, as well as via conference calls throughout the year. Newly elected members are also required to attend training on Policy Governance® in advance of the the Retreat being held January 30-31, 2018. Members are responsible for their expenses to attend meetings; however, community association volunteer leaders receive stipends to help offset their expenses.
To be eligible to serve on an MRG, an individual must meet the following criteria:
