  For decades the sole source for Homeowners Association (HOA) information for the media and State Legislature has been the Community Association Institute (CAI). Why not?   Their name implies they represent the concerns of community associations and home owners: aka HOAs. They have been the main/only source sought and invited to the table for input and wisdom on HOA matters by Government Agencies, legislators, and the media. This group is so well “respected” it has been asked to write or participate in writing HOA legislation to ensure participation of a knowledgeable and “unbiased” authoritative source. Government regulatory agencies invite this group to write industry rules and regulations and mostly adopt without challenge. The media goes directly to the CAI whenever an HOA problem surfaces to get the reason why and for them to provide a “correct” solution.   HOA legislative proposals will see this group’s lobbying machine swarm and be welcomed at the Capitol to ensure the “right” and “workable” legislation is crafted.   Visit this organization’s web site and read their literature. Unless you do so carefully you would think they altruistically represent home owners vs being the trade group that represents HOA property manager interests. This group is often invited to Legislator’s Town Hall Meetings (without the same courtesy extended to home owner groups) and represented as the expert and protector of home owner’s rights.  Read more:
