Best Practices Report

The Foundation for Community Association Research has developed a Best Practices Report for "Financial Operations".

Financial Operations It is CAI’s purpose to foster vibrant, responsive, competent community associations that promote harmony, a sense of community, and responsible leadership. Given that the fiscal health of the association has a direct impact on every member of the community, proper management of financial operations is an important element of building better communities. While the responsibility for an association’s finances rests with the board, there are numerous areas where advice should be sought from qualified financial professionals.

The board of directors, particularly the treasurer, is ultimately responsible for association’s funds and may not abdicate their fiduciary responsibility. Given the reality that community association boards are made up of diverse individuals with varied degrees of financial knowledge, the report lists basic guidelines that should be followed to ensure sound financial operations.
