Kathryn C. Danella, CMCA, LSM, PCAM, general manager of Boca Pointe Community Association Inc. near Boca Raton, Fla., will begin her one-year term January 1 as the national president of Community Associations Institute (CAI).
This will be Danella’s sixth year on the CAI Board of Trustees. She has also served as chair of the Association of Professional Community Managers Board, is a past president of CAI’s Gold Coast chapter and earned CAI’s prestigious Outstanding Volunteer Service Award in 2008.
A native Floridian, Danella has served Boca Pointe since 1986. Situated on more than 1,000 acres, the community consists of 4,000 units in 28 villages. Danella was the first Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) in Florida to earn the Large-Scale Manager (LSM) designation. In addition to her CAI credentials, she is licensed in Florida as a Community Association Manager (CAM). Learn more about Danella.
“It’s an honor and privilege to serve as CAI president so I can continue to work with so many talented industry leaders,” says Danella. “Despite recent growth and initiatives, there are unlimited opportunities for CAI to support our 31,000-plus members, build professionalism and advocate on behalf of community associations.”
Danella says she will continue to emphasize the value of Team CAI, the initiative launched by 2011 President Steven Y. Brumfield, CMCA, AMS, PCAM. “With 60 excellent chapters, a strong national organization and a growing international presence, there’s little we cannot achieve if we work together. I look forward to the challenges and successes.”
Dennis C. Abbott, CMCA, AMS, PCAM, president of Abbott Enterprises Inc., AAMC, an association management company in Charlotte, N.C., will serve as CAI’s 2012 president-elect.

Skiba, CAE. “Kathryn has been an effective and respected leader on both the Board of Trustees and the APCM Board. She brings an outstanding combination of leadership and enthusiasm to her position as president.”
