Learn How To Be An Even More Effective Board of Directors

Education For Homeowner Leaders Just Got Better

Community association board members and volunteer leaders step up to take on positions of service and responsibility. They’re expected to anticipate issues, solve problems, meet the expectations of their residents and protect property values. The CAI Board Leadership Development (BLD) Workshop can help you become a more successful board member as well as learn how to recruit and support new volunteers.

At the BLD Workshop, you’ll learn the role of the board, the president, and other leadership positions, and you’ll identify effective ways to work with professional managers and service providers. Additionally, the BLD Workshop will teach you how to communicate with association residents, hire qualified managers and service providers, develop enforceable rules, interpret governing documents and more. The BLD Workshop provides a comprehensive look at the roles and responsibilities of community association leaders and conveys information to help create and maintain the kind of community people want to call home.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving classes to a 4-week online series — four back-to-back Wednesdays. All sessions will run for two hours. Although not required to attend all four weekly sessions; it is recommended, as each week builds on the previous week.
