"Be Reasonable: How Community Associations can Enforce Rules Without Antagonizing Residents, Going to Court or Starting World War III" netted the Community Associations Institute a certificate of achievement in the Gold Circle Awards Competition from the American Society of Association Executives in the category of one-time publications.
Introduced in February 1998, "Be Reasonable" has been CAI's hottest-selling new book ever for condominium, cooperative and homeowner associations.
"We're thrilled that ASAE's Communication Section judges were as excited about "Be Reasonable" as our members," said Barbara Byrd Keenan CAE, executive vice president of CAI. "This is one of our most important publications ever because it helps community associations build consensus in rule-making on such sensitive issues as children, flags, holiday decorations and home-based businesses."
"Be Reasonable" ($9.95 members, $14.95 non-members) is available from the Community Associations Institute, 703/548-8600, and can be ordered through the Institute's web site bookstore.
The Community Associations Institute is a nonprofit association created in 1973 to educate and represent the nation's 205,000 community associations—condominium associations, homeowner associations and cooperatives. CAI members include homeowners, associations and related professionals and service providers.
