On May 15th, CAI announced the winners of their National Achievement Awards and Excellence Awards. The 64 CAI chapters from around the country and some of the international chapters compete based on chapter size. National Achievement Awards are given out based on submissions from each chapter in five categories. Submissions are reviewed and evaluated by a team of CAI chapter leaders. Excellence Awards are given out based on a comparative evaluation by CAI national staff in five areas considered critical for chapter success. CAI-CV won all ten categories for its programs in 2019. The awards will be given out at a ceremony planned at the National Convention in 2021 in Las Vegas. CAI-CV operates with over 150 volunteers who run all its programs through 16 committees. Congratulations to all CAI-CV members, committee leadership and volunteers, and to our esteemed board of directors.
As the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the health and well-being of people around the world, the Community Associations Institute California Legislative Action Committee (CAI-CLAC) encourages all board members, residents, managers, and business partners to lead with health and safety, compassion, flexibility, understanding, and business continuity in mind. CAI-CLAC is dedicated to building better communities, including each community association’s relationship with the greater community, and that mission is more important now than ever before.
In response to the pandemic, essential workers have been stepping up and are continuing to report to their jobs throughout our economy, including in health care facilities, grocery stores, infrastructure maintenance, delivery services, public transportation, government, and water utilities. The CAI-CLAC Executive Committee stands with these essential workers and encourages communities to consider relaxation of and temporary leniency regarding recreational vehicle/trailer restrictive covenants to permit essential workers and immediate family members exposed to COVID-19 to self-quarantine while remaining near their home and family.
