“Serving as president of CAI is an unqualified honor, but it’s also an opportunity to continue to build and strengthen CAI and the concept and reality of community association living,” said Nagle. “CAI is an indispensable organization—for management professionals, community leaders and association service providers across the country. I look forward to working with the board to bring even greater practical value to our almost 30,000 members in 2010 and beyond.”

A frequent speaker at national CAI conferences and chapter events—including Community Association Law Seminars in 1990, ’99, ’01 and ’06—Nagle was named the Chesapeake chapter’s Speaker of the Year in 1993 and Educator of the Year in 1999.

He served six years as a trustee of The Columbia Foundation and a member of its development committee. He is a past director of The Columbia Festival of the Arts, a former director of the Howard County Domestic Violence Center, past chair of The Columbia Association Sister Cities Advisory Committee and past two-term president of the Columbia Business Exchange.

Nagle obtained his Juris Doctor degree in 1979 from the University of Maryland School of Law, where he served as an editor of the Maryland Law Review.
