Why you should join a CAI-Orange County Chapter Committee:

Because Community Associations Institute of Orange County is always searching for individuals who wish to contribute to the industry by sharing their expertise and management skills. We need goal-oriented decision-makers, innovative thinkers and willing team members who can make things happen. Most important of all, we are looking for people who truly care about community associations and are willing to volunteer their time for a period of one year.

So then, why would you want to spend your valuable time this way? There are many personal and professional rewards.

Here are a few:

  • You will be recognized as part of the industry "brain trust" - the best minds in the business.
  • You can exercise or develop your leadership skills and possibly chair a committee, maybe even earn a position on the Board of Directors.
  • You will have opportunities to network with industry professionals from all over the country.
  • You will earn points toward CAI professional designations. If these rewards are appealing to you, please consider one of these committees and call the chair to get yourself started.
