2017 CAI-AL Chapter Theme

Dear CAI-Alabama Members:

Welcome to the new year! I hope you had a joyous Christmas season with family, friends, and associates. The Board of Directors worked diligently along with our talented CED, Julia Boehm-McKay to develop our 2017 Chapter Goals and Schedule of Events. Our theme for 2017 is Engage, Energize, and Educate. This theme represents the three key areas where we want to focus our efforts this year.

Engage Stakeholders: We want to grow the chapter by increasing the total membership by 30 members. We planto do this by providing Manager Members tools to help recruit their Association Board Members to join CAI-Alabama, hosting a Capital Day through the LAC Committee, and utilizing media outlets to better inform the public about CAI-Alabama.

Energize Members: We want to build a Ladder of Leaders to serve in Committee positions and on the Board ofDirectors by clarifying Committee descriptions and objectives, filling all Committee positions, and establishing a five-year strategic plan setting a clear vision for the Chapter.

Educate Stakeholders: We want to develop a CE Accredited course for Real Estate Agents to provide them withthe opportunity to obtain CE hours while learning about community associations and selling in community associations; host Board Leadership Development Workshops, and two Manager courses.

To be successful, it will take all of our members working together toward these goals. I hope one of these areas excites you, and that you will contact Julia today to get involved. We have openings on the Education, Membership, Sponsorship, Program, and Communications Committees where you can get involved right away. This is a pivotal year for our Chapter as we seek to establish the five-year strategic plan, and you have the opportunity to be a key part of setting the future direction by getting involved with a committee.

I look forward to a great 2017 as we work together to engage, energize and educate!

Sincerely,

Andy Turner
