12/20/2010  -  Alexandria, VA

Steven Y. Brumfield, CMCA, AMS, PCAM, vice president of operations for the National Lifestyle Division of Wentworth Property Management, will begin his one-year term as the 38th national president of Community Associations Institute (CAI) January 1. Headquartered in Eatontown, NJ, Wentworth operates in 14 states.

This will be Brumfield’s sixth year on the CAI Board of Trustees. He has also served on the board of directors for CAI’s Pennsylvania and Delaware Valley chapter. His professional experience includes serving as the assistant director of community associations for a nationwide home builder and working for property management firms in Virginia and Florida.

Prior to his career in association management, Brumfield spent several years as vice president of a family-owned, custom-home building company. He is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, having served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. See more information on Steven Brumfield.

Kathryn C. Danella, CMCA, LSM, PCAM, manager of Boca Pointe Community Association, Inc., in Boca Raton, FL, will serve as CAI’s 2011 president-elect.

Brumfield and Danella will be joined by 12 new or reelected members of the Board of Trustees and 15 newly elected or reelected members of CAI’s three Membership Representation Groups (MRGs).

“I’m honored and excited to serve as CAI president, especially during this time of growth and opportunity,” says Brumfield. “There’s much that the board and I are eager to accomplish, and I’m confident we will reach these goals with the help of our dedicated member volunteers and our national and chapter staff. Working together as a team, there is nothing we can’t accomplish on behalf of our members and those who serve and make their homes in common-interest communities.”

“We’re happy to have someone as knowledgeable and passionate as Steven leading our Board of Trustees as we continue to build on past successes,” says CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, CAE. “Beyond his extensive industry experience and great insight, Steven brings people together to achieve common goals.
