CAI volunteers bag 10,000 pounds of pet food for needy dogs and cats living in Las Vegas
May 9, 2017 — Falls Church, VA — Community Associations Institute (CAI), the leading international authority in community association education, governance, and management, partnered with PAL Humane Society in Las Vegas, Nev., to launch CAI's first-ever community service project during the 2017 CAI Annual Conference and Exposition, May 3 ̶ 6 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
CAI conference attendees volunteered their time to bag pet food for animals in need during the three-day event and exceeded CAI's goal, bagging a total of 10,000 pounds of pet food.
CAI's conference drew more than 2,000 attendees and exhibitors including, community association managers, homeowners, and business professionals serving the millions of condominiums, community associations, and co-ops worldwide.
"We are continuously amazed by our passionate CAI members who spend countless hours working and volunteering in their community associations," said Thomas M. Skiba, CAE, CAI's chief executive officer. "It was remarkable to see our members from all over the globe take part in CAI's first-ever community service project and, because of their determination, we've helped feed hundreds of impoverished dogs and cats living in the Las Vegas area."
The community service project was the final activity in CAI's Pets Campaign, a six-month-long initiative to highlight pets in community associations. According to a new survey conducted by CAI, 98 percent of community associations worldwide allow pets. Nearly half of survey respondents rated their association as very pet friendly, followed by 34 percent who rated their community as moderately pet friendly. Additionally, 68 percent of those surveyed shared that pet waste in common areas is the biggest concern in their communities.
