Message from the President

Dear Members and Friends of the CAI Alabama Chapter!

I hope you and your families had a wonderful summer filled with some great vacation time!

Thank you to those of you that attended this year's summer social that was held earlier this month at Vestavia Bowl. For the first time, we joined forces with the Alabama Chapter of IREM and held our summer social with them - with great success!

Visit for more pictures from this event.

We had a great turn-out and members of both organizations had a lot of fun networking and bowling. Also many of the attendees went home with great prizes.

Thank you so much again to the summer social's event sponsors: Allied Universal, The Green Team, Jones Walker, Landscape Workshop, NatureScape and Professional Management of Alabama. Without you this event would not have been possible!

The next CAI Alabama Chapter Networking Luncheon will be on Thursday, September 28 at The Club, Inc. in Birmingham with a reserve specialist talking about reserve studies for your community associations.

Reserve your spot at the luncheon today and I look foward to seeing you on September 28th!

Disaster Preparedness & Management

A natural disaster like Hurricane Harvey is catastrophic to the nearly 20,000 community associations and more than 4 million residents living in Texas. Now, more than ever before, community associations in Texas must come together to survive this natural disaster and ultimately recover. Community Associations Institute, CAI, is here to support these communities and their residents in need and provide you with timely updates and resources.

Here are some suggestions on how you can help the victims in Texas:

  • Give cash, not goods
  • Donate blood, shelter, and long-term donations
  • Use your language skills
  • Identify and donate to local charities, including food banks

Additional websites as resources to lend a hand to communities in need:

Contact your Member of Congress
and ask them to support the disaster assistance equity act to ensure that  also community associations affected by Hurricane Harvey will qualify for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) assistance. Click here for more information and to take action.
