"Serving as president of CAI is an opportunity not only to strengthen CAI, but also to enhance the collective effectiveness of our national organization and our 60 chapters,” said Brumfield. “My goal and the goal of the board is to make an already great organization even better. I look forward to finding new and better ways to serve our members and community associations, domestically and internationally."
