About Community Association Management Insider

Feel like no one understands the challenges you face as a community association manager?

We do.

Dear Community Association Management Professional:

Community association management is a uniquely complicated job with tons of moving parts. Your success depends on balancing the various needs (and personalities) of boards, members, vendors, employees — and that’s just for starters.

You want to make your association clients successful and your management business successful.

Don't you wish there was somewhere you could go to get reliable information about the challenges you face on a daily basis? To learn about new legal developments that affect your management company and your association clients? To arm yourself with the tools you need to provide answers to all of your stakeholders with confidence and assurance?

Community Association Management Insider (CAMI) is an online resource for professionals just like you. We help community association managers keep their co-ops, condominiums, and homeowner’s associations running effectively and within budget — and within the bounds of state, local, and federal law, as well as their governing documents.

As a member of CAMI, you'll have access to an ever-expanding library of exclusive content, written by experienced insiders. We constantly monitor and research the latest developments affecting community association managers across the U.S. Then, we publish plain-English analyses of what those developments mean to you.

You get clear information about what you need to do now to comply with ever-changing state and federal laws, steer clear of legal pitfalls, avoid or resolve conflicts with board members and employees, make your job easier, and safeguard your members’ property values and quality of life.

You'll receive regular updates on:

  • Crime and Security
  • Legal Compliance
  • Premises Liability
  • Repairs and Maintenance
  • Risk Management

  • Need input on how to manage a particularly clueless, difficult, or overstepping board member?
  • Want to find out how to better manage your employees (whether they’re employed by you or the association)?
  • Looking for strategies on finding, contracting with, and managing trustworthy, reliable, reasonably priced vendors?
  • Need tips on dealing with demanding members?

Think for a moment: How much do you charge per hour?

How much does it cost in your own time (not to mention the nuisance factor) to call your attorney for a brief conversation about a governance issue? ... What about your accountant? ... How much do you spend on insurance? ... On contractors? ... On maintenance issues? ... On security?

A modest investment in CAMI membership can help you save money and time in all of these areas because you’ll be better informed about all aspects of community association management and governance. And you’ll make better (and more cost-effective) decisions as a result.

With the information you get from CAMI, you'll get model tools, such as letters to members, bylaws, and contractor agreements to help ensure your associations run smoothly. You'll also have a better understanding of exactly what questions to ask your professional advisors so you don't waste time — and money, billed at 6-minute intervals!

How much time would you need to save to more than pay yourself back for the modest annual investment in your CAMI membership?

You could easily save more money than you would spend on membership fees for an entire year — or several — if you...

  • Skip (or simply shorten) one call to your attorney
  • Avoid a lawsuit or discrimination claim from a member who feels picked on
  • Improve your collections practices
  • Establish procedures that prevent embezzlement of association funds
  • Create enforceable policies, including fines that actually get paid
  • Reduce delinquent payments
  • Get the right amount — and the right kind — of insurance
  • I could go on ... and on ...

And when I say you could save more than the modest membership fee, that's just for starters. If you avoid a lawsuit or dispute, you could save your association or management company thousands — if not tens of thousands — of dollars!

That’s not even the biggest benefit.

Think about it this way: As a community association manager, many of the biggest costs you pay are in your own time and aggravation. What if you could drastically reduce those costs?

What if you could prevent the next member blow-up? Or spend less time preparing for your next meeting? Lose fewer hours to your next budget process? Find the right vendors the first time around? Or even tie up less of your own time bringing a new board member or employee up to speed?

The bottom line: I guarantee your Community Association Management Insider membership will be worth many times the modest membership fee, both in the money you save and the peace of mind you gain. You will do your job better and enjoy it more.
