All open positions are for two-year terms beginning January 1, 2020, and will be filled via election in August. In general, members may serve a maximum of six years (three terms) on a council.
Each council represents its corresponding category of membership to help ensure that CAI is meeting member needs. The councils serve in an advisory role to the Board of Trustees regarding policy matters and to staff regarding programs and services. The councils 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 between board and staff roles. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with Policy Governance® at www.carvergovernance.com before running for a position on a council.
The councils 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 connection with the Retreat being held January 14-15, 2020, in Las Vegas, prior to the CAI Law Seminar. Members are responsible for their expenses to attend meetings; however, homeowner leaders receive stipends to help offset their expenses.
To be eligible to serve on a council, an individual must meet the following criteria:
