(CAI) Community Next: 2020 and Beyond

For more than 40 years, CAI has educated, advocated, published and informed people living and working in common-interest communities. Thanks to those ongoing efforts, we have a strong and valuable understanding of community associations today.

But what do we know about the challenges and opportunities that await common-interest communities in the years to come, and what can we do now to minimize uncertainty and elevate our collective ability to manage the future? With that question in mind, CAI embarked on Community Next: 2020 and Beyond, an initiative launched in 2015 to define the future of the community association model.

The result of this lengthy initiative are four Community Next reports that represent the best thinking of several dozen CAI leaders and nonmember community association stakeholders.

The reports can be found in PDF format at this location
