The start of the year is an ideal time to pause and reflect. As the San Diego Chapter of the Community Association Institute: Who are we? What do we do? What are our challenges? What are our priorities?
Community as defined by Webster's dictionary is "A unified body of individuals: as the people with common interests living in a particular area".
Our San Diego membership is comprised of Community Associations, Homeowners, Community Association Management Companies, Individual Managers and Business Partners. Through committees, the work of dedicated volunteer members within each of these groups and the sponsorship provided by Business Partners, make it possible for the chapter to provide the wide range of resources and educational opportunities necessary for all members of our community to accomplish their individual goals successfully. Their efforts are responsible for the continued growth and success of our chapter.
This year, the San Diego Chapter is hosting the 2013 CAI National Conference April 17-20. In conjunction with the Conference, we have a fantastic Chapter Party planned for April 18, 2013. We are actively looking for sponsors for this great event. For more information, click the link to the lower right of this page. Since military facilities and families surround the San Diego area, the chapter has elected to donate a portion of the proceeds from the chapter party to the San Diego Armed Services YMCA. This non-profit organization provides comprehensive, ongoing services to military service members and their families through over 40 programs within four different departments (visit www.militaryymca.org for more information).
Our priorities are the continued growth and success of our chapter, increasing educational options for our community managers and promoting a positive image about community associations. Our goals are to increase all membership levels, program attendance, volunteer opportunities and communication between committee and throughout the chapter.
As a member (business partner, volunteer or community manager), get involved. Join a committee. Pick a goal and decide how you will know you achieved it. Now run with it!
As your incoming President, I am truly honored and humbled to be working with all of you to accomplish our objectives.
